Iztok Kovač is one of the most famous Slovenian contemporary dancers. I still vividly remember film by Sašo Podgoršek Vrtoglavi ptič where Iztok Kovač dances on the top of a chimney on the altitude of 360 meters. His artistic credo could be defying gravity, so I decided to do that, but with a twist of falling down the stairs. Picture was shot on Thursday evening when we were finishing editorial and I was all stressed out, but luckily I made a good picture and finished the editorial. d225_8654_borut_peterlin.jpg With this picture I’m really amazed. Because of the body language it looks like I photographed him from above and the space looks really surreal, but the truth is that it’s completely straight shot of Iztok Kovač, being strapped on his back and leaning extremely forward. Because of his body posture space looks completely surreal.

  3. Hvala! Itak samo prva fotka pride v poštev. Druga je objavljena samo kot vizualni eksperiment, kako prostor deluje, če je v njem človeška postava v nenavadnem položaju.
