Editor's Note Welcome to the Autumn/Winter 2014 edition of Télégramme Magazine. It’s a little later than usual I’ve been suffering from digital fatigue of late; too many screens, not enough things made with my hands. This issue is a celebration of the little subversive moments. Nature taking back houses, grafitti taking back the bare walls, the light taking back the dark. I hope that your summer was a good one, and that you’re ready for the crisp autumn nights that are upon us. The nights are drawing in. Love Sarah

Special Thanks

To Autumn, and to the dry days and long nights of summer.

Télégramme speaks to: dora

Dora Kontha is a designer based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Do you prefer to shoot in black and white or colour? Why? Definitely colour. The different colours and the way they change from time to time in nature are simply amazing and I attempt to reflect them in my photographs as well. What really makes me calm are the monochromatic colours by the icebergs. The combination and shades of white, How long have you been taking photographs? grey and blue is utterly mesmerizing. Actually, I have been in love with photography from an early age, but it all started around If you couldn’t take photos, what would you eight years ago, when I put my hands on my do instead? grandmother’s old traditional film camera. Frankly, I can’t really imagine my life not Since then, I never really stopped carrying it having my camera with me almost all the time and not taking photographs of my surroundings. with me and immortalize special moments. Preserving feelings, colours and places has become my way of life. What inspires you the most? Undiscovered nature, high mountains and wild rivers. The people I unconditionally love. Road What are your plans for the future? trips with always changing scenery. Nordic Instead of focusing on the future and planning landscapes, icebergs, fjords, winter nights. carefully the upcoming weeks and months, I try to just let it be, live in the moment and Airports, adventures and freedom. enjoy the here and now. But for sure, exploring What’s your favourite thing to take photos the unknown and experimenting in the field of visual communication are the things I intend to of? The North. Scandinavia has always been the do. place I longed for in all my childhood, and now I couldn’t be happier here. Probably due to this, some of my personal favourite photographs are from my journeys in the Nordic countries; it is such a wonderland for me. What do you shoot with? Primarily with Canon Rebel and Praktica. Analogue photography is something that I find endlessly fascinating with its effortless beauty and inimitable atmosphere, that’s the reason why I am using analogue cameras, instead of digital ones.

36


What is it that you enjoy about photography? It lets evanescent moments become everlasting. When nothing is permanent, and time is flying, it becomes even more important for me to remember. Moreover, there is nothing like freely experimenting with the camera without having a clue about the final result or watching developed photographs for the first time. What motivates you? The wanderlust in me.

Telelgramme speaks to: marija Marija is a 25 year old photographer from Minneapolis, Minnesota. What’s your favourite thing to take photos of? I enjoy scouring landscapes for things that other people may miss. A dramatic mountain range sure is stunning, and yes, I’ll definitely photograph that. But what excites me are the How long have you been taking photographs? smaller, less noticed aspects of the scenery, I got interested in high school when I uncovered the things that are more of a challenge to make box upon box of my parents’ old photos. The interesting. slightly off colors and imperfections got me hooked. I started out small, exploring only If you couldn’t take photos, what would you my immediate surroundings. So, I have lots do instead? of photos of my mom’s flower gardens and I would probably write more. I have a need our cats in my archives. I got more serious for documentation, even one that is vague or about it in college, but it was the year after I abstract. So I suppose I would search for other graduated when I felt that I had finally found ways to fill that void. my niche. I worked for a summer in Mount Rainier National Park and there discovered my What are you plans for the future? love and appreciation for hiking and exploring I hope to dedicate myself to photography full the outdoors. Then I began to document my time in the coming months. I am at a point in my life where I am not doing what I want experiences. career-wise, and I have finally reached the Do you prefer to shoot in black and white or tipping point. colour? Why? I prefer to shoot in color because I enjoy the What is it that you enjoy about photography? many different outcomes that can result. The Photography stimulates my need for creativity, colors can be vibrant or subdued, and true to and I also find it extremely relaxing. It helps me calm down when I am feeling overwhelmed. life or otherworldly. What do you shoot with? I have a variety of point and shoot film cameras that I am partial to. Lately, however, I have gotten back into digital and most days choose to use my Nikon D700.

What inspires you the most? Being outside, alone, both inspires and invigorates me.

66


What motivates you? I’m motivated by traveling, both near and far. I try to see each destination with a fresh set of eyes, even if it is somewhere I have been dozens of times. What advice can you give people starting out with photography? Do not rely on any of your camera’s automatic settings. Learn to shoot manually! It’s more fun, and you have much greater control over your finished image.
