Creative and interesting project by photography Sacha Goldberger.
Last summer, Sacha Goldberger decided he would take on a very interesting project. He assembled a team who helped him create an outside studio at Bois de Boulogne, a park located near Paris that’s 2.5 times the size of New York’s Central Park. He stopped joggers, asking them for a favor — would they sprint for him and then pose right after for his camera? Many obliged. Out of breath, these joggers showed an overwhelming amount of fatigue on their faces.
Goldberger then asked these same people to come into his professional studio exactly one week later. Using the same light, he asked them to pose the same way they had before.
“I wanted to show the difference between our natural and brute side versus how we represent ourselves to society,” Goldberger tells us. “The difference was very surprising.”
Did you see that fight this past Saturday night? That was some crazy carnage coming from a dude who smiles right before he’s about to enter the ring and fight someone who is bad ass at the weight they’re fighting in. I’m talking about the Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao vs. Ricky “Hitman” Hatton fight. I think it was dubbed “The Battle of East and West”. Don’t know if that’s important or not, but these two are great fighters to each in their own right.
Anyways, I watched the fight at a friend’s Bachelor’s Party down in SoCal. I was nervous right to the first punch. Then Pacman started setting up his combos. Next thing you know, he chalks up two knock-downs in the first round.
“WTF?!?! I didn’t know it was going to be this damn exciting, and fast”. I said to myself. So I quickly grabbed my point-and-shoot camera, sneaked it in on a place below the TV, and set it on to record video… hoping to get a candid of everyone’s reaction to the rest of the fight.
Lo and behold—it turned out to be a rewarding, stupendous and hilarious idea. They totally were busy celebrating the first round, and didn’t notice it at all. Funny-ass-hell.
Alright, if you have said “WTF” to yourself right away—you aren’t alone. I decided to post this as it has been going around via various email lists. I don’t know how to react to this but damn, you have to admit its funny and he does a good job as a look-alike of President-elect Obama. I just wonder if people in that office had better things to do that day. But I guess you can’t blame them for having fun and giving people a reason to chuckle, laugh, smile…
I had the pleasure of taking Kim and Ricky’s Engagement photos this past Sunday. We were initially going to roll to 2 spots: the first was the Japanese Tea Garden; and the second was Strawberry Hill. We actually didn’t get to go to Strawberry Hill as there were just tons of people visiting the Park. And there was nice weather to top it off.
