PREVIOUS INTERVIEWS IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER
In retrospect, I can say that all my interactions with the island country of Iceland have in some way or another been facilitated by Gudmundur Ingolfsson. Knowing him first through his photographic exchange with my father, Wayne Gudmundson, allowed me to witness his penchant for jokes and storytelling, be amazed at his encyclopedic mind, and get to know Iceland in a more profound way, but looking into his photographic career, which spans some 40 years, offered a new perspective on his artistically rich life.
After many conversations, artistic and non, I’ve had the great pleasure of becoming friends with and getting to know the photography Rachael Woodson more intimately. I met Rachael shortly after her move to Paris, from New York and since then, her work has appeared in the magazine Nylon and she has exhibited at Révélation 4 in Paris, during summer, 2010.
Native Scotsman and resident Coloradoan, Roddy MacInnes approaches his photography with much reflection and the effervescence of a person true passionate about photography. Roddy expresses this passion here as he discusses his unique take on vernacular photography (the everyday images, usually not destined to be “fine art”) and his experience with autobiographical photography.
Berlin is a visual haven for graffiti lovers. Colorful tags, stenciling and murals decorate the city's walls, pavement and signs. As Tristan Siegmann shows through his photography, however, these artistic urban touches also represent significant social changes. We met with the photographer on the eve of an artistic residency and the exhibit: "Berlin: Places, Traces and Borders" in Nantes, from Oct. 13-24, 2010.
Nick Veasey makes powerful images thanks to a process far from traditional photography: the x-ray. This English artist presents fascinating and unique photographs, in the sense that an image appears on a light-sensitive negative. For many years, he has used this particular technique to make "alternative" images for advertisements, nonetheless, he continues to passionately explore more personal themes and subjects that intrigue him.
