Interview (extracts)

What city are living and working at the moment? Barcelona (Catalonia), Spain.

Where from did you get this slavic name – Vladimir? Actually, it's my second Name. My first name is Mathieu. My parents were trotskyist militants and called me as a private joke like Lenin: Mathieu Vladimir Ilitch.

What is the best about East Europe? It's a hard question. I guess something of a kind of romantic mood, the particular mix between being the heart of Old Europe and the marks of the Stalinist period... and of course, the breathless beauty of the Eastern Europe women.

Where do you get ideas for the photo shoots? I guess it's a mix between improvisation, my feelings of the moment, my sensations toward the models... and a personal culture, mythology made of artistic, cinematographic, musical references, etc.

How many people usually work on your photosessions? In most of them, just the model and me. But for the editorial works, or the more sophisticated surreal photos, I can work with a lot more of people: make-up artists, stylists, etc.

Where do you find such models? Almost the totality of the models are complete strangers... volunteers who offer themselves through my different professional or personal spaces and portfolios in internet. Some are friends, friends of friends, co-eds, etc.

What are you up at the moment? I'm actually working in a couple of cinema projects... a few publications… the widening of my portfolio and knowledges… and the development of my personal website.

Whats your favourite background for photoshoot? I consider myself as a portrait photographer as I work always around the personality, the inner world, the own fantasies of my models... So it depends mostly on the spaces where the models are able to reveal something of their subjectivity, intimacy, identity... Some can project it on a studio wall or in their bathroom... As a personal preference, I guess I prefer to use the own house of the model as it's sometimes really revealing of themselves.

When are you at happiest? It may sound tacky… but I guess I'm at happiest when I see the people I love, I care about… happy. At a more personal and less-solemn level, I guess when I'm about to enter in a movie theatre to see the last movie of a beloved director or about to hear for the first time the new LP of a favourite band.

Tell us something no one knows about you. I have a strange masochist habit of wearing uncomfortable shoes… that make me pass through my own little private Passion with my feet.

How would you describe you personality? Restless. "I'll keep digging till I feel something" (Stinkfist, Tool)

Who makes you smile? Maybe Robert Downey Jr?

What makes you horny? The unquestionable and restless desire… in the desired person

What are you proud of? The confidence of my models... their giving in.

What are your political views? Revolutionary… kind of heterogeneous libertarian troskyist. Restless?

Are you happy with socialist party at government in Spain now? Not so much. Social-liberalism isn't the kind of socialism I believe in. Nor like the one that has horribly suffocated Russia and Eastern Europe for sixty years.

Mas apuntes de lecturas...

Wed May 7, 2008, 11:38 AM
"La ensoñación es siempre la puerta de acceso a un mundo en el que, la belleza y el pecado siempre van de la mano."

Victor Erice

"La fragilidad del gesto artistico es una caracteristica clave de lo neobarroco."

Omar Calabrese

"¿Y no es eso, acaso, en lo que consiste la vida? Si pensamos que sabemos a dónde vamos, ¿cómo podríamos lidiar con un robo en nuestra casa o recuperarnos de un tsunami? ¿O superar un accidente de avión que mata a los nuestros o a un gobierno que hace exactamente lo mismo? El mundo en el que vivimos está lleno de inseguridades. La mayoría nos dirán que "la guerra contra el terror y la guerra contra las drogas y la guerra contra la guerra son nuestros únicos recursos". Confía en esos fascistas y tendrás que vender tu alma. La única respuesta a la política del miedo es la política de la liberación, de la identidad, del atrevimiento, de la responsabilidad. Los terroristas suicidas son la manifestación extrema de nuestra frustración hacia el Estado en el que los fascistas quieren que tengamos miedo a las cosas. El trabajo hacia el arte y la celebración de nuestro potencial es nuestra respuesta a las preguntas que nunca podrán ser contestadas, pero que deben ser expuestas días a día."

Christopher Doyle

She's a special one for me... very special.

So it's a true pleasure just to let you know (if you don't) about her grand, grand talent as a photographer.

She has such a great sensibility... Don't miss her!

Love her like I do.

Day is Done

Mon Feb 18, 2008, 12:50 AM
Link

When the day is done
Down to earth then sinks the sun
Along with everything that was lost and won
When the day is done.

When the day is done
Hope so much your race will be all run
Then you find you jumped the gun
Have to go back where you begun
When the day is done.

When the night is cold
Some get by but some get old
Just to show life's not made of gold
When the night is cold.

When the bird has flown
Got no-one to call your own
Got no place to call your home
When the bird has flown.

When the game's been fought
Newspapers blow across the court
Lost matches sooner than you would have thought
Now the game's been fought.

When the part is through
Seems so very sad for you
Didn't do the things you meant to do
Now there's no time to start anew
Now the part is through.

When the day is done
Down to earth then sinks the sun
Along with everything that was lost and won
When the day is done.

One year... and still learning

Mon Jan 14, 2008, 7:07 PM
An anniversary...

A year ago I was buying my first camera.

Thanks to all for the support... for the many messages... sorry for not answering to all of you. But be sure I read every message, I appreciate every favorite, every watch... It's really a pleasure to share with you those little attempts... the product of my slow learning. Sorry for the irregular quality, irregular originality... I'm just trying...

Without your support... I don't know if I would be slowly moving forward with this strange project: taking pictures everyday more seriously.

Thanks to the one I love here... Alberto, Albert, Anna, Arès, Bea, Claudia, Églantine, Carmen, Estela, Holly, Irina, Maria, Mireia, Janyne, Olga, Yasmina...

To all the models...

And thanks to all of you.

:heart:

Mathieu aka Vladimir.

Jojo...

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 22, 2007, 6:04 PM
A couple of years ago, a psicoanalist friend told me that losing a family member was "like losing a layer or a piece of clothing to face the winter". Jojo was not strictly family... but in those late days of november, I feel so fucking cold now that he's gone. This was his favorite poem...

Credo

Je crois en l'homme cette ordure,
Je crois en l'homme ce fumier,
Ce sable mouvant, cette eau morte.
Je crois en l'homme, ce tordu,
Cette vessie de vanité.
Je crois en l'homme, cette pommade,
Ce grelot, cette plume au vent,
Ce boute-feu, ce fouille-merde.
Je crois en l'homme, ce lèche sang.
Malgré tout ce qu'il a pu faire
De mortel d'irreparable.
Je crois en lui
Pour la sûreté de sa main,
Pour son goût de la liberté,
Pour le jeu de sa fantaisie.
Pour son vertige devant l'étoile,
Je crois en lui.
Pour le sel de son amitié
Pour l'eau de ses yeux, pour son rire,
Pour son élan et ses faiblesses.
Je crois à tout jamais en lui
Pour une main qui s'est tendue.
Pour un regard qui s'est offert.
Et puis et avant tout
Pour le simple accueil d'un berger.

(Lucien Jacques)


Hasta la victoria! Siempre!

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 5, 2007, 10:16 AM
Lettre de Paris au camarade KOSTROV sur l'essence même de l'amour

[...]

L'amour ce n'est pas se promener bouillant,
ce n'est pas du charbon l'ardente brûlure,
mais c'est ce qui monte des monts des poitrines
plus haut que la jungle des chevelures.

Aimer, c'est courir au fond de la cour,
et jusqu'au soir des vers luisants.
briller de la hache, casser des tronas,
jouant de sa propre puissance.

Aimer, c'est des draps en loques d'insomnies
s'arracher, jaloux de Copernic,
lui, et non le mari d'une Marie,
étant le rival maudit.

L'amour n'est pas paradis délicieux,
l'amour c'est quand cela souffle en vous
et que du cœur le moteur rouillé
se remette en marche, à nouveau.

[...]

Oigan: si encienden las estrellas
es porque alguien las necesita, verdad?,
es que alguien desea que estén,
es que alguien llama perlas a esas escupitinas.
Resollando tormentas de polvo
del mediodía penetra hasta Dios,
teme haber llegado tarde, llora.
Le besa la mano carniseca,
implora que pongan sin falta una estrella,
jura que no soportará este tormento inestelar,
y luego anda preocupado,
aunque aparenta calma.
Dice a alguien:
Ahora no estás mal, eh?
A que ya no tienes miedo?
Oigan si encienden las estrellas
es porque alguien las necesita, verdad?
Es indispensable que todas las noches sobre los tejados
arda aunque sea una sola estrella.

Vladimir Vladimirovitch Maïakovski

My favs... Visa 2007

Sun Sep 2, 2007, 3:43 AM


Back from the festival...

My three favourites for this year are (in alphabetical order):

Dimitar Dilkoff (AFP):

Dimitar Dilkoff has been an agency photographer for fifteen years, and sees himself as a photographer first, then as a reporter, for it was definitely his love of photography that brought him to the world of photojournalism. He started his career with the local Bulgarian press then, with the end of the Berlin wall, he found himself in the midst of all the political change in his part of Europe. His work shows the different moods and hopes of the people of Eastern Europe.

David Guttenfelder (Associated Press):

David Guttenfelder is an Associated Press photographer, but once he finishes his news assignments, he keeps on taking photos, for himself. The stories do not necessarily have a direct link with the news; they are in a different context, offer a personal angle, and show unmistakable talent. Here is the dark or hidden side of a wire photographer for you to discover.

Guttenfelder talking about his work in Japan: www.worldpressphoto.org/movies…

Sergey Maximishin (Focus/Cosmos):

Sergey Maximishin came to photography "under pressure" from the Red Army when he was given the job of taking photographs during his military service. His shots show great harshness together with flawless realism. As he says, Russia is one of the least photographed countries in the world; this is because of the huge distances and because so many regions are so difficult to reach. It is a country of extremes, both up and down. There is virtuosity and stupidity, poverty and wealth, ignominy and honor, good and evil, and there are no limits to the way they are expressed.
Sergey opens our eyes, showing us daily life in Russia behind the scenes and triggering a positive response to this fascinating country.

His personal web: www.maximishin.com/gallery.php…


A special mention to:

Jean Chung (WpN) - Grand Prix CARE 2007:

After receiving a Master’s degree in photojournalism from the University of Missouri in 2003, Jean Chung, a native of Seoul, South Korea, returned to Seoul from the U.S. to pursue her goal to be an international photojournalist. Having traveled to Central Asia several times in recent years, she decided to move her base to Kabul, Afghanistan, to document the changes of the country and to cover in and around the region.

The awarded article: www.digitaljournalist.org/issu…

Her personal web: jeanchung.50webs.com/


And also... the pictures of Jonas Bendiksen and Véronique de Viguerie.

And of course... many of the awarded pictures and photographers of the World Press Photo.
