entrevista na blu

em agosto, por causa da exibicao de 100 men em berlim, sebastian naumann, da blu magazine, fez uma entrevista comigo, que foi publicada na edicao de fevereiro da revista.



a entrevista foi publicada em alemôo. entao aqui, procês, um crtl.c-ctrl.v do email, no bom e velho inglês:

1.How would you yourself describe your Photos?
i use photogrophy as public display of affection.


2.What are your favourite Motives and why? Which kind of Motives fascinate you the most?
you know, i studied journalism and in the very beggining of my "photographical path" i was looking outside for inspiration... then in 2003, when i was 20, i got to know the work of nan goldin and then i understood the universe! but of course, sometimes it is a struggle: "why do you think people will be interested in photos of your grandmother?". last years i've been just saying too people that my life is way too insteresting for me to photograph somehing else haahahaha so to answer your questions: my favourite motives are people that cross my way.


3.What are you working on at the moment?
i am working on survivng the fact that my delicious german lover left me.


4.What is it with this „never ending series“ (really find that interesting by the way)? Is it really never going to end?
well, i gave up on trying to organize photography flow as soon as i realised that life itself is a mess. i would start a project, and all of a sudden something else would happen and would take me into another moment, another photographical interest. so i created "the never ending project", which has in itself lots of chapters: there's the chapter about my grandmother, the chapter where i registered the process of healing of the phisical agression i suffered in 2008 und so weiter. the title was taken, with all my respect, from bob dylan's "the never ending tour".


5. You were taking a lot of pictures of your friends and even Lovers (I read) in most intimate Situations, why?
my poor camera can't stand anymore all this emotional approach! the thing is, i worked as photojournalist when i was 19, for one year i would photograph exclusively prisons and people in jail, and i simply felt i was taking advantage of this people. at this period i was much more interested in talking to them than to photographed them (in the end i was obviously fired!). it is like going to bangladesh, taking pictures of these miserable people, selling it for reuters and make money out of people's suffering. my friends, my family and my lovers they belong to me, we are equal, we are all fucked up (and i am not making much money with their images hahahaha).


6.How do you like Berlin/germany? I noticed, that one of your Pictures is actually Taken from the Berlin Wall. And which one is your favourite place in the world so far?
oh boy berlin is my new boyfriend. i honestly don't know how i would survive this broken heart of mine, if i was somewhere else. this city feels like warm hug. and of course, everywhere you look there's a cute boy to be looked at hahaha. it is definitely my favourite place in the world.


7. What does your art mean to you, what is it about fotography you love?
the person in front of my camera

Ivi, devido a resposta número três da entrevista indico que ouça Paper Bag de Fiona, Don't tell me de Madonna e My world is empty without you babe de Supremes.
Começe por Supremes e termine com Madonna, pq Don't tell é praticamente um guaraná em pó of the broken heart pra mim hahahahaha
A entrevista tá bárbara, você da as respostas mais cruas, engraçadas, verdadeiras, sutis e phinas.
Bjo Bjo

Adoro que você trata as coisas com naturalidade - as axilas das famosas, tuas prisões de ventre, o Armin ou a tua vó. Soa como uma boa vontade de (vi)ver a vida.
