Fotograf Stane Jerko v središču svetovnih medijev

Gospoda fotogafa Staneta Jerka poznam že zelo dolgo. Vedno je bolj tih, a hkrati nasmejan, vljuden, prijazen, včasih fotografira kakšen primeren prizor s premier in drugih kulturnih dogodkov. Nikoli pa si nisem niti predstavljal, da bom nekoč o njem pisal s prav posebnega zornega kota.

Stane Jerko je lahko ponosen nase in svoje večdesetletno fotografsko delo, fotografje so citirane iz Die ganze Woche

Zasluži si kakšno toplo besedo, priznanje, zahvalo, sodbudo, spomin, dialog, povezavo s tujimi medji,vsaj v obliki citiranja, kaj o njem pišejo in ga objavljajo. Tega je toliko, da ne bomo vsega nikdar našli.

Toko objavljam citat iz dunajskega tednika Die ganze Woche (16. novembra), ki daje že na naslovnico našo Melanijo, potem pa ima v notranjosti štiri strani reportaže.

Avstrijci sicer še vedno po svoje objavljajo kontekst Melanijinega dunajskega fotografiranja in sodelovanja z (Niki) Lauda Air, a jim očitno zelo hitro zmanjkuje izvirne snovi, zato so že “obrnili ploščo” in prikazujejo Melanijo Knavs ali Melanio Trump v vedno lepši luči, lahko bi dodali bolj realno.

Stolpnica družine Melanije Knavs je že svetovna, in morda niti ne izgleda slabo,  vsi jo seveda objavljajo kot “odskočno desko” za Melanijin skok v Belo hišo.

Slovenija še vedno ne razume in dojema absolutno svetovne publicitete, ki se poleg Melanije navezuje na Slovenijo kot deželo z vsemi naravnimi in kulturnimi privlačnostmi in lepotami.

Stane Jerko je vstopil v uradno spletno biografijo Melanie Trump z naslednjim stavkom:”She began modeling at age 16, when she posed for the Slovenian fashion photographer Stane Jerko.”

Upajmo, da bo Melanija Knavs gospoda Jerka povabila v Belo hišo, da posname ekskluzivno fotoreportažo po tridesetih letih.

Veliko reportažo z več najzgodnejšimi fotografjami Melanije Knavs, ki jih je posnel Stane Jerko, objavlja v svoji reportaži Mail Online ( Melania met renowned fashion photographer Stane Jerko in 1987 at a modeling contest)

Lahko si ogledate reportažo na Universion News.

No, prav gotovo ne boste spregledali slavnega The New York Times, ki objavlja več reportaž. Iz ateljeja Staneta Jerka je več fotografij v reportaži The Slovenian Roots of Melania Trump-

Melania Trump: From soft-spoken schoolgirl to next first lady

“Photographer Stane Jerko discovered the young Melania while she was still in high school, ” predstavlja v svoji reportaži našega fotografa  CNN.

“Although they haven’t spoken in decades, Jerko has followed Melania’s career from afar.
Speaking to CNN in October, he said she would be a “marvelous” first lady, adding that she could have been put to better use on the campaign trail.
“I feel like she got a bit lost,” he says. “She is too reserved and she is too much in the background.”
CNN objavlja dve Jerkovi fotografiji rosno mlade Melanije.
Nihče, še najmanj naši mediji, ne povedo, da so one prve Jerkove fotografije v bistvu že začetek popotovanja dekleta s predestinirano svetovno kariero.
V reviji GQ je zelo dolga reportaža o Melaniji. O Stanetu Jerku je citiranih nekaj negovih vtisov iz nekdanjih fotografskih srečanj.
“Stane Jerko, the photographer credited with spotting Melania and producing her first real photo shoot back in 1987, saw something similar. He had glimpsed her waiting for her friend after a fashion show in Ljubljana. She was lanky and shy, with long hair and sparkling eyes. Jerko, who preferred to find his models in public places rather than through casting calls, had suggested she come by his studio. She wasn’t interested, he recalls. “School was the most important thing for her.” But a week later, she arrived, hair in a teenybopper ponytail, with a bushel of her own clothes: leggings, leotards, high-waisted acid-washed jeans, and a sleeveless sweater that looked like a wicker basket. She was reserved and tense but followed Jerko’s instructions and quickly figured out how to pose. He could see she had a future in front of the camera. A couple of weeks later, she returned, and Jerko snapped a series of black-and-white photos of a 16-year-old Melanija Knavs in some catalog clothes, barefoot in each image. It wasn’t a stylistic choice. “I didn’t have shoes for her because she had very big feet,” Jerko says of Melania, who wore the equivalent of a size 9 shoe. “The other models had smaller feet.” (You know what they say in Slovenia about people with big feet? Jerko asks, chuckling. “When you live on big feet, you live big.”).”
New York Post se je pri Stanetu Jerku prav tako pozanimal, kakšni so bili Melanijini začetki.
“But her fashion career wasn’t a foregone conclusion. Stane Jerko, an acclaimed photographer, discovered a 17-year-old Melania hanging out at a cultural center in Ljubljana, Slovenia, during a modeling contest.

It was 1987, and he asked the teen if he could take some pictures of her.

“Melania was a very quiet, thin girl who appeared not to have too much aspiration for being a model,” Jerko, now 77, tells The Post. “She struck me more like a bookworm. I never expected that she would become a world-famous beauty.”

Well-mannered and shy, the teen went on to study architecture and design at the University of Ljubljana. Jerko lost touch with her when she started traveling to Milan, where, at age 18, she signed on to an agency.

Časopis objavlja dve Jerkovi fotografiji mladostne Melanije.
