Now for your NEXT project, how about "distorting" the image of the PHOTOGRAPHER who took that dastardly image?(The cover photo of Ann was taken for TIME by a guy who calls himself "Platon.")
So What Do You Do, Platon?
The photographer behind Esquire's famous Clinton "crotch shot" on shooting celebrities, the powerful, and fashion spreads filled with real people.By Chris Gage February 10, 2004
These days, when bolder, brasher headlines spill across magazine covers in a split-second strugglbe to capture our Schadenfreude-tinted fancy, it's rare that a picture catches the public's eye the way the low-angled "crotch shot" of Bill Clinton did back in December 2000, when it appeared on the cover of Esquire. The photographer behind that notorious shotthe British-born and mono-monikered Platonwas granted only a few minutes with the then-president, in which he covered his assignment bases and then boldly asked: "Mr. President, can you show me the love?" The photograph was immediately dissected and discussed by Larry King, Bob Woodward, and a host of other media pundits and scribes. The reaction the photo received, Platon says, "said more about the media than it did about me and Clinton. It was a contemporary portrait of a contemporary president. I wasn't going to photograph him as a stuffy old guy who doesn't relate to the young people..."
this picture of Platon is essentially the same as his pose of Ann ... feet way out in front with legs form knees down and rest of body kinda lost. there must be something about it he likes (that's lost on the rest of us).
