Luzia Simons (Brazilian living in Berlin) developed her own shooting technique, the scanogram – a way of looking at things without a central angle or focus where all details become heightened. Her artistic focus is primarily on the diversity and plurality of perceptions in relation to their different cultural heritage. Her flowers appear in her works as signifiers of historic, cultural, or colonial meanings and are used to discuss the question of social identity and globalization.

In his series Invasive Alien Species, emerging Slovenian artist Andrej Lamut (*1991) considers environmental destruction as a catalyst for sustainability. By combining paper made from invasive plant species with various analog film techniques (including liquid emulsion), Lamut recontextualizes the subject matter of invasive foreign plants. He utilises these plants, known for destroying native ecosystems, as a medium from which to build new strange abstract forms. The ensuing works showcase harmful plants like Japanese Knotweed and Canadian Goldenrod. By revealing their true character, they become reminiscent of otherworldly alien forms. Lamut is shortlisted for the Photo London and Nikon Europe Emerging Photographer of the Year People's Choice Award.

Established in 2003, the Galerija Fotografija gallery is the first and only private gallery in Slovenia dedicated for contemporary and classic photography. It aims to popularize high-quality photography of established Slovene and international artists. Alongside the exhibitions, the gallery also organizes lectures, round tables, and project presentations. The gallery entered the international art market in 2009. The gallery also runs a bookshop with a wide selection of photography literature.
