18.11.2021 - 31.01.2022

Exhibition of photographs by Macedonian photographer Ljupc Ilievski from Skopje. Get to know the cultural sights, nature and life of this near unknown country through the lens of the leading photographer from Northern Macedonia.

The curator of the exhibition is Katarína Damjanovová from the Municipal Museum in Lučenec.

The exhibition is open at the Old Town Library at Blumentálská 10/a until 31 January 2022 during the following loan hours: on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays from 12.00 to 18.30, on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10.00 to 15.30.

Ljupčo Ilievski (30 July 1955, Prilep, Macedonia) is a leading Macedonian photographer of the middle generation. So far, he is the only photographer from Macedonia whose photographs of the megalithic Kokino Observatory have been published in the Serbian edition of the exclusive National Geographic magazine with a historically high level of photographic component. He has been taking photographs since 1980. He works at the Macedonian Radio and Television as a cameraman.

When painting with light, as he calls his photography, he concentrates on outwardly unimportant subjects, which he has been dealing with for a long time and with great dedication. He pays unusual attention to theatre photography, which interests him with its exciting play of shadows.

The greatest challenge in his work in recent years has been 4,000 years of history. The megalithic astronomical observatory of Kokina has been the subject of a solo exhibition. Ilievski is the author of not only solo but also group exhibitions. He has won several awards for his photographs. About his artistic creations, critics write that “Ilievski fixes in his photographs the most interesting, the most relevant details that reflect the whole philosophy and psychology of man, reflect his whole inner drama.”
