The day after Gotye’s song ‘Somebody That I Used to Know’ made major ripples through the twittersphere the charming Wally aka Gotye was standing in front of me, topless, with shards of disco ball glass contouring his face. We were doing a shoot for Triple J magazine, and believe it or not, this is not the first time Gotye has been standing in front of me and my lens (semi) naked- that’s a whole nother story for next time.
Anyway, what with the success of his video, featuring Gotye and the beautiful Kimbra, we thought we would reference it somewhat, at least the ‘naked’ part, and focus on the title of his latest album release ‘Making Mirrors.’ Gotye brought the disco ball stickers, and was a champion. Sitting in the make-up chair, watching his reflection in the mirror as his face was slowly becoming a mirror itself.
Thanks to everyone involved, it was such a fun shoot!
