On the way avant-garde appeared

I was on the way home after a long day of continuous shooting downtown, taking photos for my monthly photo challenge with a new camera that I had to learn, when I came across Nina and her friend. They were filming for an art project they had at Strykejernet (an art school in Oslo).

Unfortunately I didn’t catch the name of the girl who was filming, but the name of the model was Nina. They didn’t mind me taking some shots, so I hung around and took some photos while they were filming. I came home with a bunch of photos that day (I’ve deleted a lot but I still have 408 photos shot on that same day).

Avant-garde, sci-fi scene.

An avant-garde, sci-fi scene.

When I was looking through the shots with Nina, I decided to merge these two photos into one. I’m pleased with the final result and I think it has some sci-fi, avant-garde feeling to it.

This is my entry for the weekly photo challenge this week: https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/on-the-way/

Enjoy this song by King Missile: “Sensitive Artist”.

“Sensitive Artist” by John S Hall (King Missile)
From the album King Missile (Dog Fly Religion)* ‎– Fluting On The Hump

I am a sensitive artist.
Nobody understands me because I am so deep.
In my work I make allusions to books that nobody else has read,
Music that nobody else has heard,
And art that nobody else has seen.
I can’t help it
Because I am so much more intelligent
And well-rounded
Than everyone who surrounds me.

I stopped watching tv when I was six months old
Because it was so boring and stupid
And started reading books
And going to recitals
And art galleries.
I don’t go to recitals anymore
Because my hearing is too sensitive
And I don’t go to art galleries anymore
Because there are people there
And I can’t deal with people
Because they don’t understand me.

I stay at home
Reading books that are beneath me,
And working on my work,
Which no one understands

I am sensitive…
I am a sensitive artist…

  1. Interesting. I remember when orange (or green or blue) hair was seriously alien. These days, I see grandmothers walking around Walmart looking like they just dropped down from the mother ship 🙂

  2. Very cool shoot CG, love the merging. A friend did that recently and I thought it was a brilliant idea! It works really well for this shot. Super cool.

  4. It is a very good merge, Cardinal. I too thought it was of two models.

    For me, the sci-fi connection is how much she resembles Daryl Hannah portraying Pris Stratton in the film Blade Runner.

    • Thanks Truels. I would normally have left some more space on the left side, but because it’s two merged photos I had to place her into an already tight crop.

  5. it’s awesome to bump into such an interesting model and ready with a camera 🙂 good work, Cardinal!! I’d never guess it’s two photos merged…
