New Striptiz portrait Tomaž Kosmač – KOSMO

Tomaž Kosmač – KOSMO is really great literate from Idrija. He is one of four finalists of Fabula and on Friday there will be announced who is the winner. I bet it will be him, although I’m purely speculating.

Anyhow when I did a research about his work the title of the book Punk is dead caught my attention and I asked Kosmo if we could do the portrait in the morgue. He was up for it and I organized everything and today we made the picture. Before we start to work we had a look around the crematorium and we even took a peak into a crematorium where a body was cremated. They cremate 40 – 50 corpses every day 24/7.

Now when I’m looking at the picture I’m wondering if it’s recognizable that guys in the back are moving a coffin? I wanted to have a portrait that will refer to a process as Punk and nihilism, then solely to a writer.

  1. Moram reči, da se iz prve ne vidi, da premikata krsto. Vsaj jaz tega nisem opazil, dokler nisem prebral komentarja in šel šeenkrat gledat sliko.

  2. Pomoje bi moral imeti malo daljši čas in za spoznanje višji kot pogleda, saj se zgubita med vsemi krstami. Drugače pa zanimiva ideja. Ne vem pa če bi me prepričal, da se živ zleknem v krsto ;)

  3. Meni zgleda, kot da si ogledujeta krste :)

  4. I have other versions, where the coffin in the back is more visable, but I decided to keep it like that. I like the tension between first and back plane. Doesn’t really matter what they are doing, as long their role is clear.

  5. @mju
    ja, vem. Pa ne samo 24ur, ampak tudi žurnal, delo, na twitterju sem videl par linkov in še kar nekaj strani.
    Saj me ne moti. Bil pa bi vesel, če bi navedli vir, ampak, če pogooglaš borat pahor sem itak tretji zadetek in obisk zavoljo tega raste. Danes sem imel 722 obiskov, a bo zečer še kak cent ali dva več.

  7. Pri Boratu, si pa ti biksnu, ker se ti velikokrat zgodi, da ne daš water markov na svoje foke, ko jih objaviš tu gor.

    Da ne govorim, koliko bo avtorica te Pahorjeve fotke zaslužila, ker vsi objavljajo njeno exskluzivno fotko BREZ dovoljenja.

  10. ja, včeraj sem imel 927 obiskov, kar je po mojih standardih kar dober obisk. Običajno jih imam med 300 in 600, sicer pa je rekord poročeanje iz Ambrusa, ko sem imel 1184 obiskov. Največja vrednost mojega bloga je, da arhiviram svoje delo in urim ingleščino.

  11. Borut, how will you surpass the legend of your best portrait ever of Dan-D? I think your blog followers are interested in knowing about how you can beat your best. I mean you had 22 comments and now just a mere 12 and if you’re not counting my futile words than it is even less. Would you say your work is in recession even though you’re a wealthy professional?

  12. Hej JC!
    I don’t care about comments, professionals or recession. And you know why?
    Yes, you guessed correctly, because my parents are rich!

  13. [...] So we agreed. I mentioned that in the past I’ve made portraits on a graveyard, at a morgue, but he said, no, no, nothing [...]

  14. Great article and right to the point. I don’t know if this is in fact the best place to ask but do you folks have any ideea where to get some professional writers? Thanks in advance :)
