  Biographie/Biography   Tomaz Gregoric (SLO)       

* 1969 in Ljubljana
lebt und arbeitet / lives and works in Ljubljana

Until my graduation on Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana in 1993 (Graphic Design department) I was dedicated to three fields of visual art, painting, graphic design and photography. I was more or less focused on composition qualities and harmony of pictorial elements. But after I received Delphina Studio trust award in London (nine months residence in her studios) I finished with painting and design and started using photography as a medium to express my attitude towards the society. My photography became more documentary, strait and simple, with portrait as a main motive. These were more or less black and white photographs. I started participating in group exhibitions and I had also some solo exhibitions (listed below). In 1998 I became more and more interested in film and colour photography. I started directing participators in my images to get a kind of frozen film stills or I push them in unusual positions to check the reaction of their bodies.
From 1994 I was also participating in different field of commercial photography, from fashion to architecture photography. I was working for main Slovenian companies and also political parties (the biggest projects are listed below). Some ideas for my personal work are coming out from that experiences, mainly as a reflection of myself as a spectator and participator at the same time.
