The project If Slovenia Were represents a photographic vision of the country and society through the eyes of 18 contemporary Slovenian photographers. It was launched by the award-winning French photographer of Slovenian origin, Klavdij Sluban, who selected the participating photographers in an open call. All of the series were developed between 2015 and 2018, visually interpreting subjects ranging from globalized suburbia, to expatriates who had emigrated to more developed countries, to personal representations of family life, and introspective series, dealing with artists’ private experiences in their immediate surroundings. All of the series were developed specifically for this project, or they include vintage material as part of the wider concept of the overall theme. Through distinct individual expressions, the artists articulate their own vision and interpretation of the country they live in.
