Photographs made while doing my daily job at Delo newspaper.


With the virus approaching the borders of Slovenia in early March, the borders were closed overnight and various measures have come into life. Therefore, many remained trapped on the Slovenian borders and also within the country and could not return to their homeland.


Every year, a week before Shrove Saturday, unmarried boys from Drežniške Ravne, Magozd and Jezerce dress up in traditional masks and go on an exciting tour of the surrounding homesteads.

As a teenager, Voranc joined the team of photojournalists of the Delo newspaper, where he still works today. He began his photography education in the photo club of the Ledina Gymnasium, continued at the SPEOS Institute in Paris and perfected it over the years in specialized workshops led by world-renowned photojournalists such as Ron Haviv, Antonin Kratochvil (VII Photo Agency), Yuri Kozyrev (NOOR) and David Hurn ( Magnum). In 2008 he graduated from the University of Primorska with a degree in cultural studies and anthropology.​ For his photojournalistic work, he received two Slovenia Press Photo (2011, 2012) awards and three Watchdog awards (2014, 2018, 2020) from the Slovenian Journalists' Association. In 2021 he received FIAP Gold Medal for Best Photograph: The World in 2020. He is the author of nine solo exhibitions and co-author of numerous group exhibitions at home and abroad.
