Svetlana Makarovič, new portrait for Striptiz rubric
I’m honored that I could photograph Svetlana Makarovič for Striptiz creative portrait, a rubric of Mladina weekly. We’ve met in old part of Ljubljana in pub Pri zelenem zajcu and I had a concept to build a picture on a cigarette smoke, since she is know as a passionate smoker and loud critic of anti-smoking law. I thought she’ll puff a smoke straight into the camera direction and I’ll caught a moment of smoke, expression and a light. Unfortunately there was a mild wind and that idea was not working at all. I had to figure a new idea on the spot and I build the concept downwind (pilot’s expression).
