Listen To The Words Of
Second interview of the month at The Fucked-Up Crew that catch our attention this year: Lara Giliberto. A photographer again, a new talent, a rising star etc. A very talented one first of all we would say. And unlike many other creative people we've been featuring over these last few yers, Lara is based in Milan (while also working in Paris) which might change us from our main photographic destination, New York. Creativity without borders on the world map that matches creativity that doesn't fit in the usual categories of our times as the introduction to the interview clearly mentions her as an exception to this wave of young photographers who mainly developed their work as masters of photoshop. Lara's pictures radiate a personal organic vibe which is more than welcome on a page like ours that has always been highly supportive of people like Chadwick Tyler, Eric Guillemain and several others who used their instinct and inspiration as first tools.
Reading the interview also gave us a longer opportunity to dive into Lara's visual world, from black and white atmospheres to minimalistic color schemes (like on the two pieces we picked for this review, from newest issue of Kult Magazine). A style that somehow echoes her answer to the question "Did you always want to be a photographer". Answer that was no, but completed by the mention that photography was always around. We've always have more interest in photographers using their medium as a tool to express themselves, than in those who seem to consider it as the backbone of everything and target some kind of formal perfection or technical prowesses. Enough said about our own feelings and for sure we're not going to spoil you the pleasure of learning more about the person behind the pictures: read the whole talk on The Fucked-Up Crew, now.
