JULIA TROTTI We hear from Sydney-based fashion photographer, Julia Trotti, as she tells us all about her career.

Featured Models Kristina Srzich, Amelia Zadro, Ivy Matheson Annika Grey, Blair Lee, Joshua Maxwell Erica East, Megan Emmett, Sabrina Sterk


I am inspired by locations more often than not I will come across somewhere beautiful that will spark ideas for an editorial.


Tell us a bit about yourself and how you first got into photography?

I’m Julia Trotti, a fashion photographer based in Sydney, Australia. My work consists of fashion campaigns, lookbooks, editorials, portrait work as well as travel photography. I have been creative for as long as I can remember. At first I dabbled in creating work out of traditional mediums, then moved on to creating photo manipulations in Photoshop with stock images I found on the Internet. I truly loved editing and retouching, and slowly wanted to start taking more control over the images I created. That’s when I picked up a camera to start shooting and fell in love with the art of photography. I started photographing more and manipulating in Photoshop less until photography became my full time profession. Who or what are your main sources of inspiration?

While I love awing at the beautiful work Tim Walker creates (one of my favourite photographers who inspired me to get into photography), I tend to find my

inspiration in other places. I am inspired by locations - more often than not I will come across somewhere beautiful that will spark ideas for an editorial. I am also inspired by emotions, colours, lighting and new faces. What would be the best piece of advice that you could give a new photographer?

Go out and shoot! You can read about photography, spend time organising and planning but the best practice and the fastest way to learn is to get out there and start doing. What do you look for in a model when you are planning a portrait session?

I love working with other creatives who are passionate about what they do. Whether it is a makeup artist, model, stylist - working with a group of people who are all hard working and love what they do can really make for an amazing photoshoot. As for models, I look for someone who is able to connect with a camera, who isn’t afraid of showing emotion and moving seamlessly.

“Go out and shoot! You can read about photography, spend time organising and planning but the best practice and the fastest way to learn is to get out there and start doing.”


What has been your favourite photography project to work on so far?

One of my favourite editorials I’ve photographed is Salt on Your Skin (http://blog.juliatrotti.com/pictures/salt). As I wrote in my blog post, I had worked with Ivy the model on a planned editorial a few weeks back, and the day before she was set to leave Australia back home to Canada, we decided to shoot last minute. I contacted a close friend of mine who is a makeup artist and that afternoon we were sitting at the desolate beach ready to take some photos. The whole day was completely unplanned - we each brought

some clothes that we threw together for our outfits and spent our time running through the sand and the waves taking pictures. Sometimes the shoots with the least amount of planning can be the most magical. What are you currently working on, is there anything we should be looking out for?

After a busy start to the summer season of shooting for clients, I am looking to spend more time shooting a few personal projects. I have a few travel plans this month to some amazing locations where I want to create some travel editorials.

“photography is quite subjective, there isn’t one way to do things, it depends on the person. ”

Obviously you’ve appeared in the magazine before with the wonderful ‘Indoor Stories’ but for our readers who may not be familiar, tell us a bit about yourself and how you first got into photography?

First of all I would like to thank you guys for the first feature, I was really happy to see my work featured in your magazine. I am a 25 year old freelance photographer from Oradea, Romania but most of my projects were done in Bucharest during my masters degree, my studies focus on political science and security ( my favourite courses where on Marxism and post colonial/ intersectional feminist ) however my passion was always photography and graphic design. I started taking photos when I was 15-16 with a small digital camera and gradually got to where I am today, through a lot of practice and ups and downs. I used to draw a lot when I was younger and loved to collect things from pictures to toys or other interesting stuff, I guess all this evolved into combining drawing or graphic design with photography for certain projects.

Who or what are your main sources of inspiration?

Different artists; I would probably need a long list to name all of them, as I follow most of them on Instagram or tumblr. I wouldn’t say that there is a linear inspiration for what I do, I get it from all types of sources, from dark symbolism to editorial fashion to architecture or just nice aesthetics, history inspires me a lot as it was one of my favourite subjects in school and later on in college. Obviously artistic perspective is very subjective so that’s what I personally find as an inspiration. You seem to work primarily in black and white, why is that?

Mostly because I see details better in black and white, secondly because I have dichromacy, which means too many colours will make it harder for me to distinguish certain patterns. I usually go for really cold or really warm tones when I shoot colour, but most of the time I find it more relaxing for the eyes and I see the perspective better when I shoot black and white.

What would be the best piece of advice that you could give a new photographer?

What has been your favourite photography project to work on so far?

To practice every day and find the style that fits your perspective or vice versa. I don’t really like to give advice as I believe as mentioned before that photography is quite subjective there isn’t one way to do things, it depends on the person.

In regards to conceptual work, I would say my faceless project with Suciu Sebastian, I love every editorial I do, and I also really like quick shootings that are planned from one day to another.

What do you look for in a model when you are planning a shoot?

This is again quite subjective, I usually look for a face that inspires me for my ideas, I wouldn’t say that I have a pattern for a model, if I think of an idea I then look for someone that would fit that concept. However, even when I plan the whole thing, what happens during the shoot is quite spontaneous and I end up doing something totally different and I think that is the beauty of it.

What are you currently working on, is there anything we should be looking out for?

Because of my job ( not related to photography ) I only get the weekends for shootings, thus I don’t have anything special planned, I would like to travel to Bucharest more often as I have moved back home to Oradea, in order to plan new shootings, but I will be doing some new projects over the summer.

Tell us a bit about yourself and what you do?

Which has been your favourite project to work on?

I have a boring life, I’m always drawing haha. Luckily for me, my work is also my main hobby, so when I'm not working I don’t know what to do with my free time. Except for perhaps one thing, I have an addiction… Assembling Gundam kits, but it’s an expensive addiction, so I only get to do that about two or three times a year.

I enjoy all of the comic projects I get to work on. And I like to draw Gundams a lot too, unfortunately I haven’t had the time lately to do that.

What is it that attracted you to comics, what are your favourite comics/graphic novels?

When I was seven years old, my grandfather bought me a Dragonball comic, and I haven’t stopped reading comics ever since. I started reading Akira at sixteen (too late) and it became my favourite comic and it still is. How did you come to establish such a distinctive style?

I never think about having a distinctive style. I think when I was a child I was worried about that, but not anymore, now I only think of enjoying drawing, and that I have to draw what I’d like to find in a comic, what I search for when I go to the comic shop.

Who or what are your main sources of inspiration?

I buy lots of comics every month just to inspire me with the art. And Otomo, the Japanese manga artist behind Akiri, is the biggest influence on my art. Other artists I have drawn influence from are Moebius, Inoue, Capullo, Ribic, Charest, but there are many more. I also find that the cinema is another great source of inspiration. What are you currently working on, is there anything we should be looking out for?

Now I’m working on a comic called Revel7ious. It’s a graphic novel based on a toy range. I’ll be working on it for about one year. It’s going to be a long process!

ANGELA MARIANO We recently spoke with 19-year-old up and coming model Angela Mariano. She told us her unique story of how she went from taking care of turtles in Costa Rica to appearing on the cover of DEZINE and all the bits in between and beyond!

Featured Photographers Zechariah Lee, Baldwin Cunningham, Oleg Nagel, Diego Palomino, Dennis Tejero, Alan David Padilla, Nick Tsirogiannidis, Святослав Гиндлер, Steve Cvatic, Jordan Doner


Tell us a bit about yourself and how you got into modelling?

So I’m from Upstate New York and I always knew that I wanted to model. I’ve always been into art and fashion my entire life. My parents were both accountants and had desk jobs and were very much like ‘Oh you need to go to college and get a real job’ and that never really interested me ever from day one, I always knew that’s never been what I wanted. After High School I kinda had a freak out and really didn’t want to go to school so I, I wanted to help people so I volunteered in Costa Rica. I was working with kids and teaching them English, helping them with homework and things like that. Then I also was volunteering with sea turtles (laughs) taking data and also working with monkeys a little bit. Yeah, it’s so random! When I came back, I really liked Costa Rica and the weather so I applied to the

university of Hawaii, got in and was all set to go. And then, had kind of another freak out like “I don’t wanna go to school, I don’t wanna do this I really really wanna be in New York City – I wanna try modelling” and I like moved here with no plan I didn’t know anyone, I was by myself. I’d just turned 19. From there I just kinda met a bunch of photographers and small brands through instagram and that’s how I got started. I suppose that’s like the American Dream isn’t it? To just go away and try something?

Yeah, literally when I moved all my friends were like so concerned “Is Ange OK?” “Ange is gonna be homeless” but it’s working out! I never had a plan B. I don’t believe in those - plan A needs to work out. I want to earn my success, I don’t want anyone to just hand it to me.

I was by myself. I’d just turned 19. From there I just kinda met a bunch of photographers and small brands through instagram.


Is it something you’re doing full time?

Yeah, currently full time. I’ve been struggling with money a little bit because I didn’t realise “oh groceries and laundry and the subway” that’s a big expense! I mean I knew it was going to be expensive, especially being in the city, it’s like you breathe and they take ten dollars right there. Everything is so much money, everything. I go to the grocery store and I see like three cantaloupes for two dollars, “OK I guess I’m having cantaloupe!” My boyfriend always is like aggravated with it a little bit, my parents – not to say that they’re not supportive – because I’m not in college or anything they’re kind of like “figure it out on your own”. Which in a way I kind of like because I’ve always been an independent person. But when I’m struggling with money a little bit it’s kind of frustrating for them to be like “Well, figure it out!” But then I got a cheque from a really big job and I had like $2,000 in my account and I’m like “Whoa, I’m ballin’ I could go to Mexico right now, I’ve never had this much money”

It works out, and now that I’m being signed I’ll have consistent work all the time, which is nice. So it’ll be a steady income from here on out?

Yeah and that’s all I really wanted, to just work a lot it’s not so much of like “Oh, I’m a model” the stereotypical stuck up image, I feel like people think of when they hear that. I just like the art of it, and working with different people and clothes. Actually it was interesting too because when me and Zech became really good friend the day I met him I met all these other instagram photographers too and I was gonna quit, I was planning on quitting and going back to school – it was a big self confidence boost like “No, you can’t quit – keep going” Everyone’s story is different too, I think about Giselle a lot, she’s like the model that’s made the most money and she went to 73 different agencies before before one said yes. Which is insane! It’s Giselle!


Speaking of Giselle, who are your main sources of inspiration from within the industry?

Definitely her, she’s one of them. I look up to Naomi Campbell a lot because she’s so iconic. I don’t know, I look up to a lot of people, especially the Victoria’s Secret girls like Adrianna Lima, because that was always my dream. She’s been doing that for a really long time, they’re gonna have to kick her out the door! I look up to Candice a lot too because she wasn’t originally meant to be someone who was with them, they were just using her as like a ‘fit model’ to like test the clothes that would go on the other girls. And someone was kind like “Wait a second…” (laughs) Everyone’s story is different, I don’t have one of those stories that’s like a traditional “I was in the mall and I got scouted” I thought it was gonna be that easy but it’s not. You work with a lot of photographers obviously, so I won’t ask you to pick your favourite. But what’s been your favourite project to work on so far?

Favourite project… There are so many! Actually, my favourite one that I’ve ever done I think, isn’t out yet but it was for ‘Off the Rails Magazine’ and it was this skate park thing that we were doing. I was in this skate park in Queens which

is really kind of industrial. I had to get up for that one at like three in the morning and I’m a monster if you have to wake me up. But it was so worth it, just going there and working with a team of people. And there was no one there too which was interesting because usually there are a lot of people at the park, but skaters don’t get up at 6am! The team definitely can make or break a project, if you’re working with awesome people then the whole shoot is awesome. I don’t like shoots that are very much like ‘Oh we need to do this’ and ‘Go! Go! Go!’ It’s not fun. How involved are you in the creative process of the shoot?

I think it definitely differs but I’ll have people that hit me up like “I have something edgy or artsy I want Ange for this”. Sometimes on a shoot too I feel like the photos that are the best are the ones that you don’t really plan out and don’t have any inspiration for, you are literally just hanging in the moment and the photographer just thinks of something. So there’s definitely some say, it’s not as though we get a lot of say, it’s like what I was saying before the people really make or break it. So if you really connect with someone you can all kind of have a say. Really though it’s the photographer’s vision.


What’s the best piece of advice you’d give someone that’s just starting out?

Stop giving a fuck what you look like, and just move. That’s what I would say. When I first started I was very stiff, because I cared what I looked like “Oh I have to by like this” you know, a pretty looking model. And I had someone say that to me “Just stop giving a fuck” and once you do that, it’s ten times better. If you’re not so involved with it, it looks more natural. I guess another thing is just don’t give up. I was told no so many times, so definitely don’t give up. Never let your fear of people judging you stop you from what you want to do. An Important thing to remember is that just because you don’t look like somebody who you think is attractive, doesn’t mean that you aren’t attractive. Flowers are pretty but so are christmas lights and they look nothing alike. Never compare yourself to other people. It’s not always as glamorous as people think it is, it’s still a full-time job with

long days, answering emails and sometimes requires working on a really cold day and trying not to look super uncomfortable. Photography is an art form, sometimes I think people can forget that. Most of the time you can find me in a messy bun and a giant Nike sweatshirt. Are you working on anything currently that you can tell our readers about?

One of my goals when I first moved to New York City, was to get signed with an agency; I’m about to be signed with Red Models so I’m most excited for that. That’s kind of the big step for me. My next goal is to walk in NYFW this upcoming September. It’s important to set new goals, do more and never play it safe. One time I was using a purple fluffyfeather pen in my history class and my teacher looked at me and said, “Ange, you need to take life more seriously.” I think about that moment a lot… Never take life too seriously, use a purple fluffy pen, do what makes you happy.

Stop giving a fuck what you look like, and just move. That’s what I would say.

DANIEL STOLLE Daniel Stolle has been an illustrator since 2007. The Germany-born artist has worked with the likes of The New York Times, Scientific American, DER SPIEGEL and many more.

Featured Artwork Daniel Stolle


Tell us a bit about yourself and what you do?

My name is Daniel Stolle. I have been an illustrator since 2007. I was born in Germany but I’ve lived in Finland for a long time. Once upon a time, I studied Industrial Design, but after graduation I decided to become an illustrator. I work mostly in editorial illustration. Who are some of the clients you've worked for?

The New York Times, The New Yorker, Scientific American, New Scientist, DER SPIEGEL, DIE ZEIT, Neue Zürcher Zeitung and many more. And which has been your favourite project to work on?

It is hard to name just one. My favourite projects are the ones, where I get a sense of really working together with an art director. Both sides need to have a sensibility for the other sides ideas and specific needs. About the actual results of the work my drawings - some projects I do not like when I finish them, but then I understand

their value after a while. Sometimes it goes the other way round. Who or what are your main sources of inspiration?

When I hear the word “inspiration” I think of little sparks, that are flying through the air. When these little sparks hit an “artist”, he or she needs to drop everything and go into a wild creation frenzy until his or her inspiration is transformed into “the artwork”. This has sadly never happened to me. Time to create these illustrations for magazines and newspapers is very limited. I just need to sit down, figure it out and draw it. Drawings often need to be revised and changed several times due to any amount of reasons. Even though that sounds very bland, I value the process very much, it is maybe just more unglamorous than one would imagine. When I see inspiration as intermediate influences and things I am interested in, then there is, of course, a lot to talk about. A long time ago I started collecting photographs, printed matter, and drawings, that have something that interests me, it could be the colour, composition, subject

“The more sombre mood of these black and white images makes them suitable for the darker subject matter like crime, violence, and mental issues.”


matter, concept or plain weirdness that make me take notice. They are mostly low-resolution photos I copied from the web, but also childhood photographs and other various odds and ends. When I am stuck on something or like to break away from the same old ideas, I browse through this folder of images. My head constantly tries to form connections between an image and the problem I am working on. I guess a fancy way to call it would be: lateral idea generation. This is a good way for me to become “inspired”. What effect do you think it has to create a piece in black & white as opposed to using colour?

I’d like to say, that these black and white images are only a part of what I am doing. I also make very different images. For me, illustrators who do not adhere to one strict formula or “style” are more interesting. The more somber mood of these black and white images makes them suitable for the darker subject matter like crime,

violence, and mental issues. I have also realized that using these shaded images allows me at the same time to be more explicit and vaguer. As an example: I can show only a small part of something or somebody in the bright light, and leave most of it unrevealed in the dark, and still, there is a sense of realism in it. When using full colour and flat light it is harder to be so measured and subtle. What are you currently working on, is there anything we should be looking out for?

I am usually working on 1-3 editorial illustration projects at a time - so there is always something in the works. I publish the ones I like to my website, Instagram or Twitter. In the background, I am always chipping away at some over-ambitious personal projects that so far have all been doomed to fail. To not jinx my current one even more, I prefer not to talk about it yet.

ZECHARIAH LEE We chat with Zechariah Lee, 20 year-old New York based photographer and co-founder of Nubko, an online community that connects creatives.

Shoot everyday and try new things. I think people are afraid of failing, which makes sense and I’m totally afraid of it too


Tell us a bit about yourself and how you first got into photography?

My name is Zechariah Lee. I’m a 20 year-old college student currently living in New York. Right now, I’m studying economics and a few months ago, I launched my company, ‘Nubko’ with a couple of my friends. I started photography close to a year ago. I started in March of 2016 but didn’t really start taking it seriously until about May. I’ve always been fascinated with photography and I remember I got a camera for my birthday in my junior year at high school but never shot with it because I was too lazy to learn how to actually use the camera. My camera would just sit there and collect dust then my friend invited me to come out with him to shoot the stars on a super clear night. We went out and he taught me about ISO, shutter speed, and aperture and it was game over after that. I worked a part time job over the summer and I had a lot of time to myself so I decided to use that time to meet new people and shoot and focus on photography.

Who or what are your main sources of inspiration?

My main sources of inspiration have changed a lot over time. I get inspired by my friends that go on crazy adventures to the PNW, Europe, and Southeast Asia but I also get inspired by magazines like Vogue and Nylon. Specific people that inspire me on the daily are @zacharyleung, @elliottsdunning, @ryyster, @johnsonluii, @samuelelkins, and @lavacava. Honestly though, I get inspiration from a ton of people but those are ones I constantly look up to. What would be the best piece of advice that you could give a new photographer?

Shoot everyday and try new things. I think people are afraid of failing, which makes sense and I’m totally afraid of it too, but when you’re trying to find your style, you should be failing every day.You should be trying things that make you uncomfortable. Try new things. Fail. Learn. Do it again. Who knows, maybe you’ll fall in love with a different style of photography.

“ I worked a part time job over the summer and I had a lot of time to myself so I decided to use that time to meet new people and shoot and focus on photography.”


What has been your favourite photography project to work on so far?

is so strong and we just want to make that easier and more fun for everyone.

I think my favourite photography project so far has been with my friend Yuliia in Bushwick.

How did you come up with the idea?

You mentioned earlier that you are a co-founder of nubko.com, could you tell us a bit more about it?

“ We wanted to create a centralized place online where the community could come together to connect and collaborate.”

Yeah! So as creatives, I think we’ve all gone through the frustration of trying to find people to work with. Photographers are always looking for new models to shoot and models are always looking for new photographers. We wanted to create a centralized place online where the community could come together to connect and collaborate. Collaboration is at the core of the arts. The painter works with the subject. The producer works with the musician. The filmmaker works with the actor. The photographer works with the landscape or model. There is some sort of collaboration in all forms of art and we realize that the connection between artists

Bryce, Quinn and I are all people that are extremely involved and fascinated by the artistic community. Bryce is a film major and I’m a photographer so we bonded over this frustration of not finding people to work with so instead of waiting for someone to find a solution, we decided to create one and that ended up becoming Nubko. What are you currently working on, is there anything we should be looking out for?

I’m starting to get in the studio a lot more and I’m very excited about that. It’s gonna be tough and I’m not the greatest at it but I’m super stoked on having this opportunity to try a new thing. Also, I’m always working on Nubko and we have some very cool new initiatives coming out so look out for that.

Perhaps best known for capturing the private moments of iconic Hollywood celebrities, Sid had the honour of working with some of the all time greats both past and present, and they with him. Join us for a look back at Sid’s incredible body of work including anecdotes from the man himself. See more of Sid’s work in Sid Avery -the art of the hollywood snapshot by Ron Avery and Tony Nourmand.

Frank Sinatra at a Capitol Records recording session in Los Angeles 1954 Š 1978 Sid Avery


FRANK S I N AT R A “I worked with a lot of people at Capitol Records, but Frank Sinatra was one of the people I worked with most often. I was always impressed with his natural sense of tempo. I was already a fan of Frank’s music before I started photographing him at Capitol, but once I started seeing him at work in the recording studio I was very impressed with his professionalism.You also had to know exactly when to approach Frank. I prided myself on not invading his space when I felt he wouldn’t be receptive to being photographed.”


BOB NEWHART “This the funniest guy on radio who came to Hollywood to make films. He was staying at the Beverly Hills Hotel – this was his first trip to Hollywood… We went to UCLA and did a whole series of photos – of him shotputting and playing golf.This is his concept of the world’s greatest hurdler in track. His sense of humor was really wonderful.” Bob Newhart is an American comedian and actor. Avery photographed him in 1961 as he was emerging as a prominent player on the stand-up circuit: the same year that his album, The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart became a worldwide bestseller. Avery was also responsible for photographing the album cover. It remains the twentieth best selling comedy album in history.

ELIZABETH TAY L O R “I sat across the table from Elizabeth Taylor. I had put my Hasselblad camera down next to my plate. Next to her was Rock Hudson and the assistant director and next to me was James Dean and the director George Stevens. After finishing lunch, Liz pulled her chair back to get a little sun and when I saw her face up in the sun, with the light on it – it was just exquisite and I couldn’t resist making a shot. It has become one of her favorite shots and is one of my favorite shots – it was just so candid and she looked so terrific. It’s so odd because her violet eyes are such an important part of her beauty and yet her eyes were closed in this photo – but still her face is incredible..”

DEBBIE REYNOLDS “She was such a doll.This assignment was just a few months after Elizabeth Taylor ‘palled up’ with Eddie Fisher. And yet Debbie was nice enough to work with me – she was very cooperative. I spent a lot of time with her and her children – she was up all the time (I went to a lot of different places with her – and shot quite a bit). Incidentally, during this period, the studios were fighting with television, trying to stop their audience from staying home instead of going to the movies. So studios were turning to gimmicks like super wide screens, 3-dimension, smell-a-thonics, and God knows what else.This was a tough period for the studios.” The late Debbie Reynolds features here with her children, Todd Fisher and the late great Carrie Fisher famous for her role as Princess Leia in ‘Star Wars’.


AUDREY HEPBURN “After working all morning, she wanted to take a lunch break and I went with her.When we were going down the street (she was cycling and I was walking), I saw her little car back there – one of the early Thunderbirds, which was very popular – and her little dog called Famous, and I asked her to stop to snap this photo. Even though her clothes are so casual, she looked so stylish and was so far ahead of most of the ladies in show business, as far as fashion was concerned. She was one of the nicest people that I’ve ever worked with, from inside or outside [the industry]. A great lady at all times, she possessed class and great beauty, and was always compassionate to the dispossessed and needy later in life, with a heart of gold. She was so giving that everybody that I knew loved her – I didn’t know anybody who didn’t love Audrey Hepburn.”

PA U L NEWMAN AND JOANNE W O O D WA R D “The most relaxed couple I have ever worked with.When I went to knock on the door to get in to do the shooting, it was like being invited into some old friend’s home.They were so warm and so relaxed and so easy going – here have some popcorn, get yourself a beer, open up the refrigerator.We spent a little bit of time shooting together and it was one of the most fun assignments that I had. Absolutely no star ego at all, real people. At this particular time, she had already won an Oscar for The Three Faces of Eve. And he never had an Oscar so she went out and had one made for him called ‘Noscar’ [No Oscar] and presented it to him. He looks a bit downhearted but that’s the breaks.”


MARLON BRANDO “I was assigned by the Saturday Evening Post to do a few pictures of Brando on his first visit to Los Angeles for a film. He was living in a little shack up in Beverly Glen. I had called to get permission to shoot and he said, ‘I can’t give you any time – I’m leaving for New York. If you want to come in for a quick shot, I’ll do it.’ I’ve always thought this photo to most depict the 1950s – with the bongos and African art. He was extremely relaxed, innovative and was thoroughly enjoyable. Plus, I must say, he was a very rewarding photographic subject even though he had an aversion to publicity and very little time for our shoot because he had to leave for New York. However, he gave me one of my best home layouts.”

Dean Martin in his dressing room, "ostentatiously avoiding temptation," in Hollywood 1961 Š 1978 Sid Avery


DEAN MARTIN “Talk about ‘relaxed’ – he was the epitome of cool. Loving father, extremely funny and talented, and a great joy to work with. Dean was leaving his restaurant, Dino’s, on Sunset Boulevard. All these fans would hang out there because celebrities always came to his restaurant. … You can see what his lunch was composed of – it looks like a martini, an egg and maybe a muffin. He was a very popular singer, actor, entertainer, good golfer and an all around nice guy. He was always one of my favorite people. I thought of the whole Rat Pack, he was the one that had the greatest sense of humor. He was naturally funny. His eldest son, Dino, was later killed (he was in the Air National Guard and his plane flew into a mountain). Dean was a great family man – even when he was working in Las Vegas, he would always get to bed early so that he could get up early and play golf.” Avery spent a considerable amount of time with Dean Martin and photographed him on a number of occasions. In 1959, he captured Dean at work in the studio with Sammy Cahn and Louis Prima. In 1961, while working on an assignment for the Saturday Evening Post (‘I Call on Dean Martin’, 29 April 1961), he photographed Dean leaving his restaurant, arriving home in his 1960 Facel Vega HK500 and surrounded by his family at his Brentwood home (with wife Jeanne and children Claudia, Gail, Deana, Gina, Dean Paul and Ricci).


JAMES DEAN “This was a tough kid. James Dean. A rebel. All my photos on Rebel Without a Cause are gone [except for two]. I don’t know what happened to them – they may show up someday. People told me before I went to see him at Griffith Park Observatory that he had almost all the photographers kicked off the set.When I went there, I had just bought a new camera called the Hasselblad with a 250mm lens (which made it look impressive). So, I stood way back and I only made a couple of snapshots of him when he wasn’t really working – he was relaxing. He got curious about the camera and he came over – I gave him a lesson on how to focus and shoot the camera. I told him what it was, where it came from and what the principal was mechanically. From thereon, any place that I went, when he saw me and he wasn’t actually filming, he would give me all kinds of wonderful photos. I remember that he did a whole series of photos with Natalie Wood, romancing her under the tree in front of the observatory – he was putting his arm around her shoulder, nose to nose, and so many other great things. But I don’t have any of it. All I can tell you is that it was wonderful.”

"Ocean's Eleven" Brad Pitt, photographer Sid Avery Š 2001 Warner Brothers Photo by Bob Marshak


OCEAN’S ELEVEN “This was a film that I worked on where I was shooting Sammy Davis Jr. I came in and shot a lot of pictures of these guys horsing around the way they did on the set – throwing cherry bombs [firecrackers] in each other’s dressing rooms, fast draw games, etc.They would stage these fight scenes for me and I shot a lot of those.This particular photo [the cast shot around pool table] has become more of an icon than anything else that I’ve shot. I asked the director Lewis Milestone if I could take this photo after they were shooting a scene of the gang planning the robbery.The director said, ‘I’ll give you a couple minutes.’ So, I got set up and put my camera on the tripod and made two exposures and then the director says, ‘That’s it!’ Both exposures were pretty good – this one was a little bit better and it’s the one I’ve always used. In 2001 I got a call from Warner Bros and they asked me if I would like to shoot the new cast and I said, ‘No, I’ve been directing film for 35 years and I don’t think I should. Besides, I don’t have any camera equipment.’ Upon hearing this, my son, Ron, told me to put them on hold and he said, ‘Look, this is a wonderful opportunity for you to have a lot of fun. I’ll be the production manager and we’ll get some of the photographers who have worked for you and who are now top photographers in the business – and they’ll be your assistants.They’ll bring their gear so we would be able to do it.’ So I finally accepted the offer and I had a wonderful time. The producer, Jerry Weintraub, was very warm and friendly – he hugged me all the time. Everybody in the cast, especially the old-timers that I worked with before – even Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Matt Damon, etc., all of whom I’ve never worked with before – all of them came over and said what an honor for us to have you shoot the picture. I kept thinking to myself, what an honor it is for me, at this age to come back and have an opportunity like this..”

“With pride I can say I am fortunate to have known Sid Avery – if you have a few hours I’ll tell you the many reasons why! In this short parcel of printed real estate, I will tell you Sid Avery was always a gentleman and the very definition of a great photographer. I recall his visits to capture the Dean Martin family on film at our home in Beverly Hills. We were all nervous, but soon found ourselves feeling at ease with Sid (he even had a sense of humour that equalled my father’s.) It didn’t take long for us to feel comfortable and safe through the lens of Sid Avery’s world. To this day, Sid’s silver framed photos fill and adorn our home. He was a noble man, a giant in his field and he remains a National Treasure. My husband John and I spent many cherished evenings with Sid and his lovely wife Diana. We’d never tire of hearing the stories of his encounters with Hollywood royalty and his life experiences; I miss him deeply. Sid Avery loved his family and his work – and I love Sid Avery! Memories are made of this.” -

A S E PA R AT E REALITY Alex Andreyev shares his passion for digital art, and we take a look at his wondrous “Separate Reality” series. “It sounds paradoxical, but digital art attracts me because it is free of technological influence.While in traditional arts, technologies dramatically limit the artist – his ability to stylise works in graphics or extremely time consuming process of paint drying, in digital painting I sit in front of a screen, grab the stylus and see the result immediately.”

Alex Andreyev Artist


“... the nagual Elias went to his dreaming journeys the way a wild animal prowls for food... visited, let’s say, the junkyard of innity... and copied whatever he saw, but never knew what those things were used for, or their source”. These, Carlos Castaneda’s words from his ‘Power Of Silence’, are the closest description of my perception of the creation process. Never did I – and never will – take the creation as a product of man’s intellect. Instead I take it as activity aiming to x certain states of comprehension I experienced in my childhood, in my dreams, etc. David Linch would deem this as the journey of the intuition. I never discuss how this mechanism works – I am inclined neither to mysticism nor to intellectual speculations. However, the human brain is the most complex thing ever created in the Universe, and our conscious awareness is only a thin lm in the ocean of unconsciousness. Everything is possible in this ocean. I work and I get back to those states of comprehension, to my childhood memories, to my dreams. I experience them again and again. This is my only motivation to do what I do. It sounds paradoxical but digital art attracts

me because it is free of technological influence. While in traditional arts, technologies dramatically limit the artist – his ability to stylise works in graphics or extremely time consuming process of paint drying, in digital painting I sit in front of a screen, grab the stylus and see the result immediately. Another advantage I find in digital arts is the absence of such sensitivity, which many define as “original”. The pixels can only be shown as the artist wanted them to be shown, the parameters of each pixel are identical on any screen. Why

do I find it great? Because traditional visual art have long ago lost it’s purity. It is overfetished, so to speak. Canvas and stretcher now mean a lot more then real art and its beauty. This created the overwhelming wish to possess the originals and readiness to pay huge amounts of money. Contrary, my high definition works are not at all expensive. Thanks to moderate pricing in the form of prints they open so many doors. Thanks to their digital origin people are not distracted with things not connected to art...

TALBOTICS While working on a master's degree in Santa Barbara, California, Tal Avitzur worked for sculptor George Rickey, ceramicist Beatrice Wood and painter Irma Cavat. The passion they showed for what they did inspired him and set him on his creative path. With a workshop full of vintage tools and retro scientific equipment collected over many years, he began building sci-fi themed sculptures. Tal is heavily influenced by the comics, science fiction books and movies that he's always enjoyed, as well as still looking at things with the same wonder and amazement that he had when he was a child.

During a remodel of a fixer I had purchased I tried to use as many recycled materials as possible, so I frequently visited scrap metal and salvage yards to gather objects for different building projects. I kept finding all kinds of cool objects that I didn’t need for the remodel but I thought they needed to be rescued from the yards. Before I knew it, my gardening shed became full of all kinds of weird stuff that would make good props

on a set for a Dr. Frankenstein movie. Items collected include vintage tools, kitchen appliances, vacuum cleaners, floor polishers, electric fans and scientific equipment. Based on the designs of some of these objects (circa 1940s through 1970s) it seems as if many of their creators had secret desires to be building rocket ships and robots.The original use of a vast majority of the spare parts in my inventory is a mystery to me, because the scrap yards don’t have

tags identifying each object. After I bring parts to the studio, they are cleaned, disassembled (if necessary), sometimes polished, then sorted. Each piece begins with finding the personality in an object, then test-fitting combinations together, and cutting, drilling and grinding until reaching a natural-looking fit. I find it enjoyable figuring out how to put things together that were never meant to be connected.”

ROSS A. WILSON At seventeen Ross completed a City and Guilds in photography, but he’d had his first camera since the age of twelve, staging toys as if they were scenes in movies. We hear Ross’s thoughts on colour and black and white photography and why he chooses to shoot in both.


N

owadays I shoot both colour or black and white, although they’re really two different languages. Which one I use depends on what I’m trying to communicate or, in the case of black and white, what I don’t want to communicate. We see in colour so black and white is the absence of information and I find it’s useful to think of black and white images being defined by what they subtract from an image in order to make other elements stand out; less is more.

For me a colour photograph encourages us to judge what we see, it’s how we see the world every day so it’s harder to switch off our knee jerk thoughts and reactions. Sometimes that’s your intention, but sometimes you want people to step back from that reaction and look at the world from another angle. Black and white invites the viewer to concentrate more on composition and geometry and to find harmony and dynamics in those elements. I think it can also turn everyday objects into symbols and encourage people to find meaning in them.


W

hat much of my street photography work is about is trying to find the strangeness and beauty that we miss in everyday life, which is all too easily taken for granted. A photograph, whether black and white or colour, allows us to do that. But with black and white I feel it takes that idea to another level, divorcing us of our prejudice, alienating us from the world we know and understand, in the hope of looking at it with new eyes. When it comes to landscapes the same principles apply, black and white focuses the geometry, light, form,

texture and composition. Those are all arguably intellectual ideas. However I find once you’ve begun to appreciate these elements you gain a new appreciation of the landscape, of nature itself and the world we’re living in, and that can lead to quite powerful emotions. Black and white then, to me, is like a lens that filters out our instinctual reactions, enhances often unappreciated elements of the world we live in, and sometimes transports us to this strange and amazing place that’s right under our noses.


P H OTOJ O U R N A L : T R AV E L L I N G I N B L AC K & W H I T E

Geraint Rowland Photographer


I

believe that by converting an image to black and white one adds an extra element that is often lost with colour photography. With landscape photography, converting to black and white can add to the sense of scale and vastness of a scene. With documentary photography, converting to black and white can make the scene more powerful and alive. And with people photography, converting to black and white can add to and increase the captured emotion, whether that be happy or sad, lost or lonely. Photographer, Ted Grant's quote

on black and white photography sums this up beautifully: “When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!� I rarely take a photograph thinking I will convert it into black and white, instead it happens later in the editing stage. The reason for converting to black and white normally depends on the light in which the photo was taken, but it can also be due to the atmosphere or mood of the image.


I love how the black and white conversion to this rural scene captured in Cusco, Peru, gives the image a dated and atmospheric feel.


The genuine happiness and innocence of these children in Belen Market, Iquitos, Peru is magnified by the conversion into black and white. The beauty of the light on the water is also accentuated by this process.


Taken during the Day of the Dead Carnival in Mexico City. Here the black and white conversion adds to the atmosphere and spirit of the carnival.


For a brief moment the light under the pier in Santa Monica was amazing yet it didn't quite work in colour. Converting to black and white exaggerated the amazing light show and the addition of a photographer in the frame added to the image.


This confrontation between a shop owner and the Police in Downtown Mexico City is brought to life by the black and white conversion. One can almost feel the tension.


Taken through the window on a road trip through West Africa I captured this boy as we passed through the border between Mauritania and Mali. His eyes show a lot of emotion which the black and white conversion helps bring out.


The final conversion is of Surfers waiting to enter the Ocean in Lima, Peru. In this image I believe the black and white tones add to the power of the Ocean and the dark forces of Mother Nature.

Sometimes the surprise is a disappointing one, when I had convinced myself that I had taken a sure- fire winner of a picture only for the finished article to be something that is only fit for the bin but at other times I have been thrilled to see that something that I thought would be entirely ordinary is revealed as a little magical instead.”
