The first gallery of travel photography in Slovenia
In the AvanTuristica gallery we offer bold photo-adventures through the eyes of the professional travel photographers as well as creative amateurs.
By establishing the gallery AvanTuristica, we enabled a creative and artistic expression of current issues in tourism. Turistica also cooperates with the Association of Travel Photographers of Slovenia and encourages creative thinking and visual expression of students. The Gallery has its roots in 2010 and occasionally hosts other current exhibitions in the field of tourism. AvanTuristica strives to strengthen the recognisability and reputation of the faculty and university in the local and wider environment.
Iztok Bončina was the first artistic manager and curator of the Gallery AvanTursitica, world traveller, freelance photographer and reporter, professor of art history, tourist guide, diver, astronomer and president of the Association of Travel Photographers and Photojournalists of Slovenia.
