He was born in 1942 in Zagreb. He graduated from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture in Zagreb.
He started working in photography in 1960 as an associate in Tošo Dabac’s studio which he took over after Tošo’s death in 1970. He’s been working as an independent artist since 1966 and he’s been a member of ULUPUH since 1970.
From 1980 to 1987, he organized around 40 photo exhibitions of local and international authors at the gallery established within Tošo Dabac’s Studio. He is one of the founders of SPOT, a photography magazine, launched in 1972.
Since 1990, he’s been teaching photography at the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana. In the sixties, he began working on a series of black-and-white portraits of artists, acquaintances, friends and members of the art scene, which he continued to create during the following decades.
He belongs to a generation of artists who introduced the conceptual approach to photography in the 1970s by creating spatial installations and doing experiments with photocopies and photograms. In 1982, he published a photography portfolio “A Sense of Nature at the End of the XX Century (17 photographies)” with a foreword written by Annie Le Brun. In the second half of the 1980s he made a series of colour portraits. Since 1990, he’s been working on a photographic journal which is still a work in progress.
