An exhibition of members of the Photo Club Zagreb will open in the Photo Gallery of the Photo Club Split on Saturday, July 4, at 7 p.m.

The exhibition is not thematically rounded but represents a cross-section of some of the most significant photographic achievements of the members of the Photo Club Zagreb, and the exhibition will mainly present photographs that have been awarded at competitions in the country and abroad. A couple of months ago, in a catastrophic earthquake that hit Zagreb, the club space in Ilica was severely damaged and devastated. Photo Club Zagreb, as well as many other cultural institutions, found itself in an extremely difficult and financially demanding situation. To help colleagues and friends from Zagreb, Photo Club Split decided to host an exhibition in which visitors, in agreement with Photo Club Zagreb, will be able to buy the exhibited works, and all funds raised will go to support the renovation of the club and exhibition space.
Photo Club Zagreb is one of the oldest amateur photo clubs in Europe. Its history dates back to 1892, and in that long period, it became an unavoidable factor in the promotion of Croatian photographic culture and art not only at home but also abroad. In the 128-year-long tradition of the Club, generations of great photographers have emerged, whose photographs are an integral part of the "Collection of Croatian Photography" entered in the Register of Cultural Heritage of the Republic of Croatia, and whose owner is the Photo Club Zagreb. Today the Club has over 300 members. During the year, numerous activities are organized: exhibitions in our gallery, in galleries throughout Croatia and abroad, photography courses, presentations and lectures, photo workshops in the country and abroad, and the biennial international exhibition "Zagreb Salon" is known and appreciated around the world. The Club has developed cooperation with domestic clubs and clubs from abroad (Austria, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Slovenia, Italy, China, Canada, Finland, Sweden, South Korea).
The exhibition will be open until July 24, and you will be able to see it every weekday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
