Portraits documenting us and our chemicals

with 10 comments

Here is my selection of portraits that I’ve done for Ministry of Health dealing with us and our everyday usage of chemicals. I submit those images also to an EU contest documenting Europe. Gallery Photon.si (Dejan Sluga) is a selector and only three photographers from each country will contest for the award.
Chemo project, portrait of everyday chemicals.

  2. Yes, since people portraited were not payed, but yet they had to sign model release form, it was unpleasent, so I included some relatives.
    I’m sure JC will find some familiar faces in the last picture he, he…

  3. ahhh…I feel at home watching all of these Slovene stars on the small screen! Branko ‘Siptarski Tsar’ Peterlin is majestic…but honestly I don’t have much time to discuss this because I am too busy making money. I’m traveling from airport to airport and hanging out in first class lounges…why am I telling you that…no reason but just to seperate my success from yours…fuckin’ communists! Take my 6 figures up the arse!! USA! USA! USA!

    Seriously Borut, You have some good shots there…I love the Roma picture…anymore from the series?

    He told me his secret. That is that Americans just don’t know how to make an airplane out of carbon fibers.

    Unfortunately this picture is not among the selection for the official exhibition.

  6. You are right, USA has no clue about carbon fiber aircraft (Dreamliner, Predator etc…) 🙂

  7. You’re right, but it needs to be bigger, stronger, and in every possible way excessive.

    I guess also NASA appreciate different ways.

  8. I like complete story. Each picture, alone, does not have strength and could be interpreted in different ways. My personal favorites are drug store lady, hair coloring and last one.
    When will we see some better time portraits?
    Best regards,

  9. 8. picture (pipistrel ultraight) is special because it wasn’t one of your wide-angle-canon-beasts used for it 😉 (hope I’m right)
    It looks different than your previous pictures, but still very nice, as the other pictures are, too

    p.s.: Manchester United!

  10. You’re right PIPISTREL picture was done by 85mm lens. Last one with Roma settlement was done with 35 or 50mm. I carry heavy rucksack with lenses and I use different lenses just to justify myself the heavy burden.

    Igor,
    collection of pictures can bring a whole different dimension to one picture. Very important! That goes also to photographers career. Every photographer can make a good picture. especially nowadays. Good collection is much much harder to do. Better time portraits are coming in few days 🙂
