LADY BALLOON & THE BROKEN PIANOS
Calendar photos / 2009
Collaboration between modeling chameleon and performer Lady Balloon (a.k.a. Frau Feger) and nightlife photographer Lokey from Texas (LokeyPhotography.com) set up by PP in front of the Broken Pianos at Gallery Wallywoods in Berlin. The calendar didn't get produced but who cares. It might one day. We had a super time working on this; Lady Balloon's changes of style and atmosphere for each of the 12 pianos was remarkable.
Can's find larger images of the other shoots, below, so these are small jpegs from which a final selection was made. The strip featuring a crocodile was shot not at Wallywoods, but Torsten Lilya & Wolfgang Burjacks' design studio over in West Berlin.
Before returning to Texas we staged an exhibition of Lokey's photos with live music. As well as the Lady Balloon pictures it also featured large format works from a series made at his other favourite hangout, Prague. To find out about a book he recently published, check his website
