Publications and awards – NG France, Spelunca and more
This year’s harvest of caving expeditions was not very rich, but nonetheless some visual material came to be in printed form. The best publication in all respects is certainly photo-documented cave-diving expeditions to the french Padirac cave, which was published in the french edition of National Geographic magazine. There we were, together with Boštjan and Mojca Vrviščar, recording for three days the course of crossing the cave and also provided some additional cave motifs. Exterior shots handled by Katja Bidovec and Arne Hodalič was in charge of underwater shots. The French edition was released with two different covers. National edition was adorned with the Vikings, but the special edition, intended for certain districts and Padirac cave, had my photo on the cover. I hope to write more about this venture in the future.
French colored joy continued with the publication of my photo-caving creativity in the venerable magazine Spelunca, where each issue presents the person and the work of the established cave photographer. It seems that I also belong in this category and I was especially deeply honored because of this publication.
I was also remembered in the August issue of the English magazine Cave and Karst Science, which published the collage of photos of Planinska jama, especially Paradiž and Pivški rokav. The publication is particularly special to me because of analog shots with some radiant energy which I usually miss in the digital world. Cover photo is enriched by Iztok Medja’s motif of the Postojna Cave.
