THE TABLE OF FC BERGMAN
CLIENT: de theatermaker
Written by Karen Chin at BRANSCH NY: BRANSCH photographer Frieke Janssens took a portrait of FC Bergman Group, a daring, experimental theatre troupe from Antwerp, Belgium. This multi-layered portrait will be featured in a book by “d e t h e a t e r m a k e r,” an organization that helps young theatre artists to realize their projects. All together, the panoramic portrait depicts a variety of performances with the actors capturing their personages in each tableau. For those curious to know how this image was created, this portrait was taken in nine installments in the studio, while the beautiful French Alps in the background was photographed separately. According to Frieke, things got a little risque when it came time to shoot the fireblower in the center of this image. Let’s just say that his help for getting into the moment shocked our photographer, and even the seasoned actors in the room who thought they had seen it all.
