Radio Ga Ga, portraited for Striptiz rubric

with 8 comments

Striptiz, creative portrait rubric of Mladina weekly.
Famous Radio Ga Ga show celebrated it’s 20th anniversary and I asked Sašo Hribar a month ago if they would be interested in making a portrait for my project Striptiz that is published by Mladina weekly. He agreed, but I didn’t had an idea how to make it, so I waited for an inspiration. It came a bit late. I wanted to make a sort of remake of famous The Beatles picture Abbey Road from a year 1969, just that they would carry a life size cut out characters that they are impersonating and it was shot infront of Slovenian parliament. Unfortunately Jure Mastnak was missing.

For the shoot I really had no-time. I did literally 13 shots, it was raining, guys had little time and also a police officer in front of parliament called his colleges and I believed if we would do another walk across the street we would be in trouble.

I gave away all charecters I only kept Rode that was perfect motif for so many images.

Last but not least… After a successful advertisement for C5, her is another one. “C5, not yet Papamobil, but close!”

  2. Hmm… Tala Abbey road je bil predelan že ničkolikokrat, ampak tvoj me ne spomne tok na tisto fotko zaradi kota iz katerega je slikano… Ker ni direktno na zebro fotkan… Mogoče bi bilo to dobro tudi v tvojem primeru, ker me tale parlament v ozadju, pa drevasa in avtomobili kar malo zmoti, ker imaš full globinske ostrine… Je pa njegova ekselenca vsekakor super žival za posvojitev! Če ga obdržiš v avtu, se boš zagotovo izognil vnovičnim vlovom in kakemu speeding ticketu! 😉

  3. Sure Abbey Road is an inspiration, but I did check on flickr and I immediately decided that it’s not going to be a central composition.
    Because:
    – central is boring, to balanced
    – for The Beatles it worked because they had a square format, whereas I have a rectangular
    – some perspective highlight Sašo Hribar as a founder of this sort of humor in Slovenia
    – parliament is crucial. I visited few locations, but I decided for parliament, because political satire is a fundamental of Radio Ga Ga talk show.

    thx,

  4. No, tako če jo pogledam skozi prizmo tvojih prejšnjih striptiz fotk, tale na prvi pogled izgleda kar nekako preveč običajna z B5.
    Ampak ni. Zakaj? Okej, osvetlitev res ni nič posebnega (to te krasi pri ostalih), ampak določeni elementi mi tule fino fino pašejo.
    Super ideja za predstavitev Ga-Gajevcev in njihovega dela, parlament in horizontalni udeleženci prečkanja povedo vse.
    Potem mi je zanimiv vedno zanimivi Jure Godler; najprej sploh ne opaziš fore, tako imenovanega navideznega lebdenja. Fajn je tole pogruntano, Jure dejansko lebdi nad svojimi vrstniki oziroma nad celotno “običajno” populacijo.
    Super je tudi postavitev horizontalnih junakov. Rode je čisto desno, pobraten s klerikalno desnico. Rupel nekaj koleba, ampak gre na desno. Bush ni čisto siguren, Peče pa je levica, skrajna.

    Skratka, po razčlenitvi mi je še totalno bolj všeč. 🙂

  5. in SLO & ENG
    Ja, dejansko mi na tej fotki ni studijski fleš opalil Imel sem samo enega in se ni tako hitro polnil. Ostale so tehnično bolj OK, a ni moment pravi. Saj sem posnel le 13 fotografij preden policija ni od vznemirjenja prešla k sankcioniranju.

    True, my studio flash lite didn’t fire on this photo. Flash feeder couldn’t charge it so fast. I had technically better pictures, but this moment is perfect. I shot only 13 exposures before police didn’t sanction us.

  7. O, ha ha ho.
    Glede na to, da jih vsak petek poslušam in se ob tem rolam in kotalkam :), jih po moje ne bi mogel bolje predstaviti. Idealno. Kakšna tehnika, tule nima veze, gre za improvizacijo, trenutni navdih in izjemno hitre klikerje. Ti bi bil odličen Ga-Ga-jevec. 🙂 Super!

    le samo
