New cover of Mladina 17-18 / 2008
For this issue of Mladina I did a coverpage. Or better my picture was chosen for a cover. I did the picture on a gathering of Social demokrat party in Novo mesto. The cover appears to be a photo montage, but it’s not! Well, it is polished well, but the shot was as it is. Here is the full frame of the picture.
I’m shooting in raw format on fixed lenses, so I can afford to make quite nasty crops. I prefer that then zooms.
Here is another one from the occasion, where Sašo Hribar is telling jokes on Borut Pahor.
For this issue of Mladina I did also pictures of first president Milan Kučan. I did literally two shots from this perspective and three more from different position and few more during the interview.
I love taking pictures of political events and even more I love seeing them printed. Each picture printed in Mladina is seen by more then 100.000 people + it’s archived in libraries forever. Sure pictures do appear to be trivial (sometimes), but it’s great to see your small contribution in a product of a collective. Small, but crucial! I just love the game!
