New Striptiz portrait od dancers Rosana Hribar in Gregor Luštek
Here is a new portrait for Mladina’s Stripiz rubric. Rosana Hribar and Gregor Luštek are renown dancers that recently won an important international contest in Hanover. I now Gregor from secondary school but he moved to Ljubljana and I see him only on national celebrations where he performs. The image is shot on a parking lot beside Bežigrad stadium and it’s one of rare free parking lots in Ljubljana. And since it’s free it’s also not maintained and there are so many puddles it looks very surreal, so I wanted for a long time to make a portrait there. When I made first test shot I was surprised myself on blueness of the sky. It’s not artificially saturated, it’s just evening sky, that I underexposed it. Portrait of dancers was perfect occasion and I find a perfect metaphor in contrast between dirt, wet, earth, cold,… and air, sky, clean,…
It’s a metaphor of artist’s pursuit for beauty in everyday.
