INTERVIEW by Pierre BECHON

1.Can you explain your work?

-Body is the main subject of my work.
I begin by choosing a model that upon me would have the best interaction with an idea for a shooting. I like to see how the body interacts with the context I chose for the photography, what I mean is how their natural feelings comes out in front of a camera.
-Everybody has their own body language when they are facing a camera. It’s like a natural choreography created by emotions : some are shy, stressed, other are extravagant, or excited by the unexpected language of their own body in such situation. - That’s what I want to capture, this unexpected result offered by an intimate relation between someone discovering his own body language and my desire of revealing it in selected contexts.

2.What are your references? What does inspires you?

- Anything can inspires me. - It could be Nature, chaotic landscapes, other artists works or colors with created relations that could be used through all my different interests. - My work is also stimulated by my memories in the way I compose the pictures. I am not interested in creating a literal definition of what could be called beautiful, I like to use contrasts to enhance that notion of beauty.

3.Why you chose to work on Photography?

- Actually i really like to paint too. - What interests me with photography is the spontaneity of its process. - Like I said I want to capture these moments where bodies are expressing in situations I create and that instantaneous feature offered by camera is the best way to give form to my expectations. - Also the technical possibilities offered by the photography medium are incredible. Depending of the film, the lenses, the kind of camera, you can easily create or discover different possibilities even through one shooting. And I want to had something that also keeps me working with camera, is that I have the possibility to easily work in series and without spending too much times in creation process and then being able to vary my work.

4. What kind of dialogue is created between you and your model?

- I really to create an intimate relation with my future models before making the pictures. For me it’s a way to break some emotional walls during the process of shooting. What I mean is that doing so, creating that friendship, allows the model to offer me their best emotions for the pictures without being blocked or having another bad feeling when you work with someone you never met. - When that long process of intimate relation is created between the model and I, it’s easier to get really interesting body language without having to manage everything from my side. They are naturally expressing themselves for each works in a different manner and the results are always surprising me. I really love that.

5. What make you think your work is art, not fashion?

- Well, I don’t consider my work as fashion because I am not trying to compose my work to highlight a style or a dress-code, but it’s about body. I am interested in the composition process from fashion off course because I work for fashion companies when I make shootings, but I like to give my own interpretation of composition with colors, contexts and body.

6. How do you choose the places for shooting?

- I am attracted by contrasts. When I choose a place, I immediately try to project my model in that situation. For example, I find attractive abandoned places where we can see chaos, warehouses where the fragility of the body could contrast with the power of the machines and the place and so on… I really try to focus on places where the bodies choreography won’t be expected.

7. How do you compose you pictures?

- The composition of my pictures always depends on 2 main points : first the place I decide to use for the shooting, and then the model and her feelings she expresses at the same time. - From these two points, I work a lot with the colors to play, adjust, suppress, enhance the different emotions expressed from each pictures.

8. What are you trying to create with you pictures?

- Nothing special. I just want to capture these moments created by the different emotions expressed by the models in chosen places. That’s it. My composition is just a way to stimulate the possibilities from confronting body and space.

9. Five words that represent for you, your work.

- Body language, fragility, spontaneity and seduction.
