Juliette Gaudino vndl July 1, 2013 Interview, Photography, Uncategorized VNDL: Describe your work/process JG: I try to anticipate more these days. Trying to get myself away from pure street photography and focus more on materials, light, consistance, colors, shadows… I’ve done a black and white film last week, which was nice but too cinematographic for what I experiment. Your eyes see colors right? So why changing the reality? I’m not trying to play with something I don’t know, or that you don’t know. So I prefer to shoot color film. I want to get the closest to what your eye see. Same reason why I shoot film instead of digital. But recently I’ve watched ‘The state of things’ by Wim Wenders, in which a character says something interesting: that no one is interested in reality because it’s boring, and that art is the best way to escape reality. Right now I’m working on the ambivalence between these two statements. What have you been up to recently? (trips, projects, work?) Catching on boring things here before leaving for adventure Favorite Quote “What the Photograph reproduces to infinity has occurred only once: the Photograph mechanically repeats what could never be repeated existentially” Roland Barthes, and “Those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones” by Haruki Murakami . Advice to other creative’s/aspiring artists Perhaps not to consider yourself as an artist: this way you can only improve yourself and do better. Also to stay away from the internet or to use it very wisely… What are you currently listening to/reading/ watching? I’m reading a book about Paul and Camille Claudel and watching Rhomer’s films. I’m listening to this guy and this girl. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Hummm… probably still taking photographs I guess Who is or where does your inspiration come from? Any emerging artists to watch out for? My inspiration comes from nature, cities, environment, architecture, design.. and walking a lot. Concerning artists Angela and Sophie started SUCRE paper which is really good. And off course Michel Nguie.
