Still at K21 Museum, exhibition of Juan Munoz. Here one of his typical scultures infront of the mirror.
No photography allowed inside this exhibition. Why? I'll never understand.
Even touching is forbidden. I saw a man who touched one of the sculptures. there was a guard very soon to say that it is forbidden. Kind of strange.
A nice exhibition. But why is everything forbidden.

what a creative shoot,your model is different, like prisioner or somethings like that

The forbidden fruit tastes better ;-). I like this a lot. Maybe a little correction for the deformation of the mirror would make it even better.

seemingly not everything could be executed :-)) as you managed to take this photo, hehe;
interesting take, nino, kind of geometry playing a game with the light colours,
nice lite style, good work,

Apparently, flash contains uv rays, which over time fade artwoek colours. I'm sure you've seen an old poster outdoors exposed to sunlight, where the red has turned to cyan? Anyway, I like the duality here & the bonus self portrait. Tfs!
jinju (14265) 2006-12-16 5:15
its one of thos IDIOTIC rules. I mean seriously, what are you going to do, steal the statue in your camera? Idiotic, I think flash photography should be banned but as you say, regular photography? This is in a way you flauting it to these idiots. Very artistic shot.
adrost (2378) 2006-12-16 5:38
Nice idea and composition.
Pure and geometrical structure.
oriolm (1142) 2006-12-16 5:43
Great exhibition shot! Can photography damage the pieces? It can damage feelings but never the material, I suppose.
king (4242) 2006-12-16 6:59
Great composition, Nino.
Fortunately there are may museums nowadays that allow making pictures without flashing.
nbj (2097) 2006-12-16 10:15
super composition; you chose just the right place and angle. i like the sculpture too.
faubry (35447) 2006-12-16 11:24
hello Nino, i like this minimalist image, very simple, talking, creativ, great work!
nwoehnl (122) 2006-12-16 11:54
Hi Nino. Well done beating the 'powers that be', and a nice idea for a self-portrait. The framing is well laid out, with the staggered alignment of the statue and yourself in front of the mirror. Enjoy your weekend.
john_c (24666) 2006-12-16 12:03
All of your shots are interesting, but your greatest talent is when you combine people and art in scenes such as this. The perspective, the depth obtained, and the clarity of detail all mesmerize. A clean crisp and smooth shot. And yes, most good things in life are forbidden...
entrelec (8328) 2006-12-16 16:13
Very nice compo, Nino, all is reflection except the mannequin...but he show us his back...
t0mmm1 (5442) 2006-12-16 16:49
But they didn't stop you ;))) Nice surreal picture. Strange, but I like it.
Have a nice day,
vapours (8264) 2006-12-16 23:16
Great shot here Nino, you've done a fine job of making your own piece of art from the art presented.
sothy81 (9630) 2006-12-17 4:12
Hi Nino, what an interesting picture. So simple, but photographically qualified. Wonderful composition...a picture filled with mood and wonder. Sothy
marknunnerley (2780) 2006-12-17 5:15
Nino, you seem to be getting more and more in the frame. First it was your leg, now it's your reflection, and who is the guy with the camera. Ha, ha. You have some great photographic opportunities where you live haven't you? We have a little library that opens for 3 hours a day four days a week!!
Like this one, good stuff.
steveryan2006 (439) 2006-12-17 8:45
Good clean graphical work. But if photography is forbidden, how did you take this?
ahmet54 (3263) 2006-12-17 11:18
interessantes Selbstportrait mit sehr guter Raumaufteilung. Hat der Spiegel gebogene Seiten oder macht das Objektiv diese tonnenförmige Verzerrung ?
sabyasachi1212 (19779) 2006-12-17 13:45
Very graphical, very original. Love the way you have composed this with the strong lines in geometrical patterns.
With Greetings from India
zizzer77 (721) 2006-12-18 9:57
sempre belle idee le tue, sono scatti davvero originali.
complimenti per la tua inventiva
devimeuxbe (58557) 2006-12-20 17:53
this is a very interesting composition with the reflection of the photographer. The light is perfect and the frame also.
coco (30439) 2006-12-21 5:49
All is forbidden because they invite us to break the rules. You choose the good way: you rebeled.
I like the photo. Is creative and original.
Thanks for share.
cepekdong (3676) 2006-12-21 12:07
wow nino !
das ist ja ein ganz klasse bild ! es ist zwar einiges zu sehen schaut aber dennoch leer aus ! und das finde ich super ! ganz toll mit em gelaender und der spiegelung von dir
brevbrev14 (140) 2006-12-22 3:56
Hi Nino, i have had some problems with my internet connection in these days...so i missed some photos...
This image is BEAUTIFUL!!
i like a lot your composition, your original idea, great work here!
RADEEH (2802) 2006-12-26 9:39
I too feel strongly against the ban on photography.
Here the composition of the statue is very classical.
The colours are simple and effective.
Great work. Great effort!!
cessy (13647) 2006-12-28 2:32
very nice, artsfull selfportrait :)
yes I often saw no photography allowed rules :(, with so much handphone now equipped with camera (now some already more then 3.2 MB pixel), seems quite stupid rules
Mistral (15402) 2006-12-28 12:52
interesting PoV and self portrait too!
I also like how your model is placed against the mirror.
I wanted to wish you a New Year full of nice meetings and experiences along your journeys.
Angshu (56760) 2006-12-28 22:39
Very original 'self portrait'. Very graphical you've done superbly with framing here. The lines of the mirror, the curve of the railing all add to this excellent compo.
Wishing you the very best for 2007
tinamunk3 (6408) 2007-01-01 1:05
Very very different from your Indonesia shots but I like the clean lines and the crop. Everything so well placed in the mirror :O)
By the way - had a fantastic trip (went photo hunting with Yoga and his friends) and want to go back as soon as possible.
A happy New Year and all the best in 2007.
andante (7092) 2007-01-03 9:48
art interacting with life imitating art... great concept!
Furachan (0) 2007-01-04 7:21
Nice one, Nino, very smooth! Good use of the vertical too. This one really bit me hard right from teh thumbnail, very artfully composed.
All the best,
nfriedli (1060) 2007-01-11 5:11
Maginfique composition! La justesse et la finesse des couleurs me sont particulièrement agréables. J'adore cette image.
Photo65Net (43120) 2007-01-21 0:53
Nice capture of a strange masterpiece.
Very balanced, with nice POV.
asival (5307) 2007-09-22 23:27
I liked this self portrait… the minimalism and the monotonous tone is what makes it so special
marietom (34609) 2007-10-29 9:21
Superbe réalisation ! Originale, et recherchée, bravo !
quillo (11856) 2008-02-19 13:27
Hola Nino, a very interesting framing in which you integrate into the composition with tact and elegance. I like much the balance of two figures inside the mirror, it is a good work and I like moreover because it is prohibited.
