“National Parks: Taking Care of Nature”, a photo exhibition celebrating the national parks of the US and Slovenia through images taken by National Geographic photographers, opened yesterday in the Slovenian capital. Here are 18 images from the opening and the exhibit, enough to give you an idea without me pushing the bounds of copyright.
Nearly 100 images –half depicting scenes from national parks in the U.S. and half taken in Slovenia’s Triglav National Park– line the
Jakopič Promenade in Ljubljana’s sprawling central Tivoli park, a fitting setting for the theme. It’s definitely my favorite exhibit space in Ljubljana.

The exhibit, sponsored jointly by National Geographic, the City of Ljubljana and the U.S. Embassy, coincides with the U.S. National Park Services centenary, which is being celebrated this year, and the 10th anniversary of the Slovenian edition of National Geographic Magazine. The southern side of the promenade features images from U.S. Parks and the northern side from Slovenia. Each portion features works by 26 photographers.
