Photographer from Slovenia. Janez Vlachy stops interesting faces on the street, ask them to come to his studio… some really do. He participates today to a group exhibition with his portraits, in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
“Try to add value with some story, use a gadget if possible, something that does not belong: old fashioned sunglasses, crazy dress combination-one model said: Wow, i can use this combination, that’s cool ! Really an inspiration if the model is enthusiastic about the concept, otherwise it is a very stressful situation, final obstacle being the personal freedom and attitude of the model, not to mention a man stopping an unknown woman on the street, asking her to be photographed, ha, that is a joke ! Some just walk away, thinking i’m crazy or something. It is also a very intellectual affair, strong intuitive process.”
