BIOGRAPHY

Andrej Lamut

Andrej Lamut is a Slovenian photographer working with analogue and digital techniques to provoke certain feelings or moods through his images. He thinks of photographs as physical objects, that are not just carriers of meaning, but rather pieces that should be seen, felt and experienced. To him, the process of creation is equally as important as the final piece itself. He has graduated with honors from the Academy of Fine arts and Design at University of Ljubljana and has received several awards for his work, including an award for the best designed bibliographic/monographic publication at the Slovene Book Fair 2017 for his photobook Nokturno. As an emerging artist he represented Slovenia in the first cycle of the European Photo Based Platform – PARALLEL, as part of the program he exhibited his works in galleries and festivals across Europe, including FORMAT Festival (UK) and Organ Vida Festival (Croatia). In the past two years he has held various photography workshops and classes at different institutions, including Maribor Art Gallery. Since June 2019 he is represented by Galerija Fotografija in Ljubljana.
