Sacha Goldberger’s Joggers

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.”

Pacquiao vs. Hatton Candid Reaction

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.

Any­ways, I hope you like it!

Filipino Obama

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…

Love Jump JTG, orig­i­nal­ly uploaded by stechico.

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.
