New Striptiz portrait Stanka Hrastelj

Stanka Hrastelj is really interesting poet and I was looking forward to make her portrait for my Striptiz project. I read few of her poems before the shoot and I was shocked by language, message and how poem was so strikingly visual comprehensible. Here are some of her poems in English, but my favorite is one of her new poems Anatomy in a living room. Anyhow I ask her to bring some unusual objects with her and she brought trap for animals. It’s a real torturous device and luckily nowadays it’s illegal to hunt with this. We tried many situations, but on the end the best one was the simplest one. I tried what kind of pressure will it make on her ankle, but it was OK if we closed it slowly – very slowly. It was really cold like 2 degrees Celsius, but Stanka was very patient. The hardest was the expression. She laughed constantly and when she tried to act a pain, she laughed even harder. On the end I choose one really nice expression that is expressing pain and laughter. Stanka commented that is a poetry. Pain with pleasure and pleasure with pain.

  1. glede na to kako je bilo tisti četrtek mrzlo (sam sem zmrzoval nekaj 200m nižje od lokacije fotke pod reflektorji), ni obraz na Stankinem (si jo drznem poimenovati kar tako – že ve zakaj :)) prav nič čuden. Če naslednjič pokličeš, pridemo se kaj naučiti (če dovoljeno) in narediti making of 🙂

  2. Ej, pa veš, da sem te videl! A sem iskal možno lokacijo in te v hrbet nisem spoznal. Veš, da je vedno fajn imeti zakulisne fotke. Nič, predlagaj koga s tvojega konca naj še naredim, mora biti področja kulture, pa se zmenva.

  3. aja… Ker prešnji vsejan mobitel ni obrodil sadov, sem še en mobitel vsejal, zato mi moraš telefonsko št. poslat. Kar na email.

    Kaj pa o Stankinem portretu misliš?

  4. ujeta v pasti anatomije v dnevni sobi, na reprezentativni lokaciji (poleg naše džamije pri sadovnjakih je dimnik druga znamenitost). Se učimo 🙂

  8. Take this nasty picture away and put a new one!!! Even if its the pictures of cows from your father’s house. Copy and paste something from the internet and just upload it…it’ll take you two seconds.

    You’re welcome to ask questions to the Slovene photoshop community like…what do you think…CMYK or adobe 98? Should the cows be more concernerd in the picture or less concerned…

    I promise you will get comments…
