Lavish Mode INTERVIEW WITH A MASTER 1. At what age did you become interested in photography? I was at the university when I seriously understood my path was far different from mechanical engineering. I remember the day when I went out to take photos instead of following the lesson of mathematical analysis, I felt so good. Finally I sold my university books and bought photography books, and later I signed with a photography school. 2. How did you start your career? In 1997 after the photography school I met with the editor of the magazine “fotografare” which was one of the the most popular photo magazines in Italy. He gave me the chance to write an article about photographic technique, he liked my article
Image in Progress PHOTOGRAPHY IS A LIFESTILE Although this is called “Artist Diary” I don’t like to be called artist, I’m a photographer. I know it sounds controversial because photography is an art, but I never thought to make art, I make photographs, and I make them to please myself first. You know, if you try to please everyone, you end up to please no one. Photography is more than a job for me, it’s a lifestyle. I mean, it’s not that kind of job which you stop to think about when you get back home, or when you take some days off. As a photographer I’m never off, I feel like I’m working 24 hours a day, or I
Черное и белое Фотограф-самоучка — о деградации фотографии и сексуальности без спецэффектов. Как бы вы описали собственный стиль? Лучше других стиль охарактеризовал мой агент Джеми Ван Дер Гус:«мода-красота-гламур» и «секс-эротика-трэш». На стыке этих определений рождается элегантная фотография, наполненная смыслом. Женщина — не фарфоровая кукла в вакууме сюрреализма, как показывают глянцевые фотографы. Я ищу искреннее несовершенство, подчеркивающее красоту модели. Ищу сексуальность, но без постановочного лоска. Как выглядит ваша идеальная женщина? Мне нравятся женщины держащие дистанцию. Мне близок образ холодной чувственности и недоступности. Я восхищаюсь женщинами с сильным характером, которые не боятся показывать индивидуальность. Как сформировался ваш стиль в фотографии? Когда я только начинал, у меня не было денег. Только фотоаппарат с дискретным объективом 35 мм и одна вспышка. Теперь я не ограничен в финансах, но по-прежнему снимаю, как и снимал. Иногда использую 2−3 вспышки, но не больше. Я минимально ретуширую фотографии и не кадрирую на этапе пост-обработки: выстраиваю кадр на подготовительном этапе
INSIDEART L’EROTISMO DEI CONTRASTI Gli scatti di Marco Tenaglia, fotografo classe 1971, dove il glam si mescola al decadente, il lusso al trasandato Marco Tenaglia, fotografo classe 1971, ha studiato all’Istituto Superiore di Fotografia di Roma e perfezionato la tecnica tra Stati Uniti ed Europa. Contrasto e provocazione sono la sua cifra stilistica, dove il glam si mescola al decadente, il lusso al trasandato. Nei suoi scatti di nudo l’erotismo non è nel corpo delle donne, e nemmeno nella perfezione. Alcuni fotografi ritraggono la donna come una dea, una musa, tu la rendi “più terrena” a volte addirittura”mascolinizzandola”: come vedi le donne di oggi? «La donna non è una dea, è una donna. E lo è con il suo mix di
PENTHOUSE NETHERLANDS Women in control. Sexy. Soms trashy. Altijd ongenaakbaar. Qua uiterlijk. Maar vooral wat betreft karakter en uistraling. In de fotografie van Marco Tenaglia zijn vrouwen vooral in beweging. Hun dynamiek spat er woest vanaf. En zijn ze in ‘rust-stand’, dan is dat hooguit een ogenschijnlijke, zoal die van een luierende tijgerin. Haar love blik verliest nooit dat verscheurende. Tenaglia’s foto’s zijn voornamelijk in zwart-wit. Maar door zijn belichting en harde tinten weet deze Romeinse fashion- en portret- fotograaf er toch een bijzondere ‘kleur’ in te brengen. Kijk goed naar zijn Sterke Vrouwen en besef: zij zijn gevaarlijk, spannend, bloedlink. En o zo verlokkend. DE MISSIE “Met mijn werk anderen en mijzelf entertainen alsook inspireren. Ik houd
MONOVISION Interview with Fashion photographer Marco Tenaglia How and when did you become interested in photography? Well I think I always liked photography, when I was a kid I was fascinated by the camera of my father and I enjoyed each time I had the chance to touch it and press the shutter button. Then I received a polaroid camera as a gift when I was 10, and I loved taking instant photos, it was a kind of magic. I become definitely interested in photography when I was 18 just because I wanted to take better photos of my girlfriend at that time, since then I never stopped. Is there any artist/photographer who inspired your art? Helmut Newton without any
