Maksimilijan Zupančič-Milijan, Partisan Photographer and Organiser of the Photojournalist Service
Maksimilijan Zupančič - Milijan (1911–1968) was a professional photographer, partisan photojournalist (he joined the partisans in the autumn of 1943), a prominent organiser of photography equipment delivery and photojournalist service in the Liberation Front district of Novo mesto, until he was summoned to the head office of the photography section of the Slovenian People's Liberation Council in Črnomelj. Since the capitulation of Italy in September 1943 until the end of the war in May 1945 he made more than 1400 diverse Leica shots, showing the life and events in the partisan hinterlands. Many of these photographs transcend the documentary level. On the basis of documents from the Archives of the Republic of Slovenia we also get to know Zupančič as an important organiser of an important organiser of photography materials supply and organiser of the photojournalist service.
