Scope and Content

The "Tekoče gradivo" collection, which formed the basis for the founding of Phototeka in 1952, occupies a special place among the museum's photographic material. Together with the anti-partisan, German and Italian photographs, the material of the partisan photojournalists forms the largest collection in terms of numbers. The photographs on paper, glass plates and mainly negatives were taken during the Second World War, and after the war the material was supplemented by the reproduction of (also existing) originals on new media. The collection comprises an estimated 150,000 negatives and 15,000 glass plates. The collection is a fundamental source of images for research into the Second World War.
