A one question interview with the mysterious photographer
- Text by Riccardo Lionello
There's a surreal pop culture essence around the photographer Ernesto Tedeschi mixed with a refreshing sense of mystery surrounding the man. Satellite Voices sat down with Ernesto for a quick fire, one question interview.
Satellite Voices: If someone asked you to write something to make yourself sound interesting, what would you write?
Ernesto Tedeschi: I learned to photograph in a cinematography school, with cinecamera film loaded into an analogue camera. I worked with a publisher that I've never met in person; he send me around Italy to photograph all sorts of managers and jazz musicians.
In addition to this, I'm focused on a fairly long series of personal projects, when I try to combine styles of art photography with concepts of reportage. I do a lot of pictures of naked girls, but sometimes I feel the need to have a trip in Germany to deal with solar energy, or to develop a project in Naples on the market of fake luxury goods.
Here in Rome I love a Chinese store where I buy items impossible to use and beautiful to photograph. When I can't find new models for my pictures I photograph the same person until exhaustion. Now I am working with a model with red hair, we see each other three times a week. I worked on my first job with a 35 mm camera from World War II that makes noise of a coffee maker.
The key remains the same, that is to be conviced about what you want, and stop believing that photographs tell the truth. And Photoshop stews me.
