An erotic portrait of an erotic photographer, Rajko Bizjak

Rajko Bizjak portrayed by 20110907_9374

Rajko Bizjak is very known and acknowledged erotic photographer in Slovenia and he’s exhibiting his work at Photon Gallery in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

I wanted to make his portrait, but a really good one. I took myself a week to think about it. The inspiration came from Duane Michal’s self-portrait with feminine beard but Duane was using multiexpousure (or sandwich of negatives) and I executed in a literal way. That’s the formula I use times and times again and usually the reality brings me the most surreal concepts. Like the one of Andrej Hočevar… Anyhow I hired Rajko’s model for this portrait and I will not even ask for a reimbursement from my client and avoid the question where is the official receipt with VAT number 🙂
I hope you will like it, rate it, comment it and eventually buy a book of my portraits. Regular commentators of this blog will earn a free copy. Few of them like JC and Leopardman already won the unpublished book. Iztok used to be a regular “The Avalaunch” commentator but now he gave up. We miss you!

PS: Facebook banned this portrait! Ha, I’m getting controversial, which means last chance to buy my prints for three digit price 🙂

  7. No, meni osebno je portret všeč ampak moram pa priznati, da mi nekaj manjka. In sicer nekaj v njegovih očeh. Le – te mi izgledajo puste in prazne. Mogoče jim manjka malo iskric 😉
    Otherwise great job 🙂

  8. Bejbo pa je moral kr faj pikat, glede nato, da je Rajko neobrit.

    Fenomenalna ideja za portret…

  12. @Anonymous neeee….

    @Mateja, a veš, da imam tudi Rajka nasmejanega in še par drugih izrazov, a ne dela. Brezizrazna je še najboljša.

    Thanks for all the comments people.
    JC is leading in the number of comments with the number of 327! Second is myself with 203 (Indeed I will need to comment my posts more often!) third is Igor Petrović with 68 and Leopardman has 48, followed by Iztok and some dude named B5. You will all get my unpublished book! Congratulations!
