New Stripitz creaive portrait – Domen Lombergar

with 6 comments

My next Striptiz creative portrait commisioned by Mladina is Domen Lombergar. Domen Lombergar is an artist that is dealing with photography and strong post production photo montage. His images are surreal and since he have an exhibition Cyber Punk:Posthuman in Metelkova citym, I decied to do something in this direction. I wanted to do his portrait with his feel, but without digital manipulation. Actually I don’t have nothing against digital manipulation, but I prefer to manipulate pictures in an analog way. So I decided that I’ll wrap whole room in an aluminum folio, to create a cyber-punk feel. Luckily his computer room was a perfect set to make a picture. He is working on three screens simultaneously so that was perfect for me. It took m something like three hours to do the picture, although it felt like an hour. Luckily Domen was a patient model and we did several scenarios. I even tryed to wrap him in aluminum, but that felt a bit too much, like a cheap masquerade, so I decided that black coat and leather glows would work much better. Here are few more pics in the making of…

  1. Nice!!! Mostly, I like to look at the picture and create my own story about it and then to read a text about it. So, at first sight, I thought he has to do something with ice and maybe climate changes, maybe because his gloves or maybe because that blue(ish) tone of aluminum folio.Domen does great montage, but somehow I can not connect your photo with his work. Maybe a photo no.4 where only his eye is visible. On the other side, I’m looking at the picture all over again, his pose is telling me that he is an artist, maybe painter (reminds me to a Rembrandts posing).
    I like this portrait!!!

  2. Ciao Igor,
    thx for the past midnight comment! You are right. It’s not meant to be about his work, but it’s about Domen. And you know me, I use person’s work as a starting point, not at all finishing point. I also choose a different direction. I’m not sure if that makes sense. Maybe I’ll make a better answer in the morning 🙂
