“The only thing that still attracts me, is nature”

“The only thing that still attracts me, is nature”

In April 2018 temporary exhibition “The only thing that still attracts me, is nature” was opened in the Skylight photographic studio of Josip Pelikan, authored by Bronica Gologranc Zakonjšek and Aleksander Žižek, PhD. There are 44 photos of mountains and hills, predominately the Savinja Alps, on display. Namely, nature has always attracted master Josip Pelikan, and as a member of mountain society and enthusiastic hiker, he was especially drawn to the mountains. Therefore, in the Museum of Recent History Celje, we store a collection of about 3000 photographs of mountains and hills from the 1930s and we have exhibited some of them in the gallery of Skylight studio.
