Marko Modic(born in 1958) is one of the most established Slovenian art photographers with an international reputation. His artistic and photographic quest has early become inseparably linked with extensive travels around the world as well as with extreme sport exploits. His photographic endeavours were earlier accentuated by performances, while painting, drawing and writing remain his modes of expression up until today. What makes him special among contemporary photographers is his technique of photomontage which, even today when up-to-date digital photographic equipment is used, has remained outstandingly individual and original, which is also due to his refusal to apply computer manipulation or postproduction to his photographs. That is why Modic’s claim that photomontage is for him neither a matter of manipulation nor an experiment but a vision born before he presses the shutter release survives as the fundamental paradigm of his photomontage process. Modic has been creating and exhibiting both in Slovenia and abroad. His photo-monographs were published by renowned publishing houses (i. e. Gestalten from Berlin (DE), Logos from Modena (IT) and others). In 2014, Susan Zadeh, the founder of the Eyemazing magazine, included two of Modic’s photographs in her selection of world photography in the Eyemazing Annual, labelling it “Contemporary Surrealism”.
