Photographic works nowadays can be found as retrospectives of influential authors or as individual works in permanent collections in important national institutions such as Moderna Galerija (MG) and the Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova or in regional influential venues such as the International Centre of Graphic Arts (MGLC) in Ljubljana or Maribor Art Gallery (UGM). MG has also managed a Photo Archive since its very beginning in 1948.
