Some time Goodbye - Bob Knutton - Blood In The Snow , I did an interview with The Crazy Mind, a website that features artists from Chinchilla - The Shadows - The EP Collection Volume Two the world.
We talked about my Bye Bye Amor - Zé Paulo - Luz Aether. Time to put it on the site. He lives in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. He is working on a new photoseries that can best be classified as sci-fi photography. He is also working on a new album of electronic music and on the final stage of a musicvideo production he has produced in cooperation with a Hong Kong-based media company.
We have conducted an interview with him. You describe your work as science fiction photography, where does your interested in other realms come from? As a kid I was always fascinated by sci-fi and space exploration. I wanted so much to become an astronaut.
I am fascinated by other worlds. I wanted to experience leaving the earth and looking back at it, to realize how little our endeavors really mean, our petty fights, our conceits about deities. It really helped me get perspective. Your images are quite abstract, yet seem to evoke emotion in viewers, how does this happen? I love to imagine the unimaginable. I approach these ephemeral ideas with my mind, knowing I can never touch or materialize them.
Words alone are insufficient to communicate how I feel. So I imbue my images with Goodbye - Bob Knutton - Blood In The Snow complex emotions, to share the melancholy of yearning for Same Ol G - Various - Dr. Dolittle: The Album impossible, to feel the ecstasy of gaining knowledge of the unknowable. Akin to experiencing a radical and enormous paradigm shift.
Invoking a silent awe, fascination and terror because of its overwhelming power and strangeness. How do you find images that provoke these feelings? When I started taking photos, around the time I was 9 or 10, I noticed I could sometimes, completely by chance, capture something that would resonate with this longing to know the Numinous. It could be an underexposed photo of a family trip to Paris, standing in front of the Louvre Pyramid, or a shot of a plastic bag in close up, resembling mountain ranges on another planet.
Now I no longer depend on luck to get a result that will excite me. I seem to know instinctively what to look for, how to frame it, Lose My Breath - The Shore - Light Years get something I can work with.
Sometimes I can feel it calling me in architecture. There are no rules to this. The shot itself, unedited, may not yet reveal all too clearly what I was going for, but once I start manipulating it, tweaking reality, the intended image emerges.
What makes a photo become one of your sci-fi photos? I enjoy manipulating the images in Goodbye - Bob Knutton - Blood In The Snow editing room until they feel right to me. I need to push the images and myself to get to this apex, this mixture of sci-fi and surrealism.
Often I push and manipulate the images further and further so that they become abstract, no longer representative of one singular thing. Yet they maintain, or even gain a strong emanating sense of emotion. This is my playground. I start to imagine worlds unfold, intricate lines of causality unfurling into time. To me photography is a way to change the way I see reality, like lifting the veil to peek into the realm of im possibilities.
