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.

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.

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.
