The exhibition of the photographs made by the master photographer, Branibor Debeljković (1916-2003) was opened at the Artget Gallery in Belgrade yesterday.
The exhibition titled “Faces” represents the title, theme, motif and description of the exhibition on display at the Artget Gallery.
These are the portraits from the abundant heritage of the master of photography Branibor Debeljković (Pristina, 1916 – Montreal, 2003), holder of the title EFIAP (Excellence of the International Union of the Photographic Arts), professor at the Faculty of Dramatic Arts from 1976 to 1983, and the beacon of Serbian photography in the second half of the 20th century.
“Thousands of his photographs works are the most convincing testimony of the essence of Branibor Debeljković,” says Milena Marjanović, artistic director of the Artget Gallery. “This impressive number usually makes it difficult to select a few photographs that will be exhibited, however, this was not the case because Professor Debeljković chose the photographs himself, opting thematically for portraits which he made throughout his career that spanned over 50 years – from his earliest photos to his adulthood and the end of his life,” Marjanović adds. Unfortunately, Professor Debeljković was not able to prepare his last exhibition, but he left it so conceived that we could easily set it up.
All the photographs on display belong to the collection of her granddaughter, Milena Debeljković, kept in the bequest of Branibor Debeljković in the Special Funds section of the Serbian National Library. Most of the exhibited photographs are accompanied by a detailed description of how they were created and are preserved by his son, Dušan.
