love lives forever * minnie riperton (amazing voice, she did things with it that are really amazing)
this is a cross-over project inspired by my vinyl collection and a great artist - see below. minnie riperton is pretty unknown and therefore very underrated. she was a great singer wirh a great voice. the first time i heard a song of her it blew me away. i was like 'aaaah, wow, amazing!'. the same thing happened years ago when i stepped into the bookstore RAS in barcelona when i saw the posada book. i had never heard of him and liked it immediately. i´m even into ths kinda art but i had to buy this book. together these both are an incredible mixture. and the double here fits perfectly together. not only in a sense of the overlapping layers but although because minie riperton died at young age and the 2nd layer is of a skull. this is another experiment with doubles using graphics of the mexican engraver josé guadalupe posada. the graphics are from a book (posada - mexican engraver) i once bought in one of my favourite bookstores in barcelona (ras). first time i used this with illustrations of the childs book the jungle book (http://www.lomography.com/homes/bloomchen/albums/1785569-the-jungle-book-vs-mexican-engravers-doubles) and promised more to come. this time i did doubles with record covers i chose out of my vinyl collection. i should add: don´t wonder about the udo jürgens disc because it´s just in my collection for other reasons than the music. i did the 2nd layer (graphics) with a makro lens i hold in front of my camera and this is why some are out of focus. it´s pretty hard to get it done good that way and so the first layer, too seems to be out of focus which wasn´t the case. so i guess i need to buy me a good lens to do such kinda pics in a more pro way.This photo was shot on film.
