Accurate photographer, he signed in the pages of Parallel Magazine a shot tinted of deep orientalism. Known by all for his huge talent and respected among his peers: But, who really is David Roemer? David has quickly established himself as part of the “new generation” of imagemakers. In 2003, after studies in psychology, film, and painting, he made the decision to pursue photography, concentrating on fashion. He began to shoot editorial that pushed the boundaries of movement, power, and expression. David’s subjects have a dimension that can often be ironic or jarring, mixing retro and modern elements. With a strong attention to color and visually retaining a graphic sensibility, his images blend the fine line of natural texture and subtle perfection. David's clients include many emblematic fashion figures such as Max Azria, Tommy Hilfiger, Cacharelle, Hugo Boss, Vogue, GQ or also Interscope Records, Warner Bros and Samsung.

purple fashion Rencontre avec la dentelle W/ Yasmine Eslami Paris Fashion Week F/W 2014
n Yasmine Eslami, dentelle et séduction. Par Adrien Belaich. Vous avez dit French Touch? Touche parisienne par excellence, la marque éponyme Yasmine Eslami porte à la fois le nom et l’élégance de son émérite créatrice. Auréolée en 1989 du renommé Studio Berçot, elle rejoint Londres pour un stage chez Vivienne Westwood qui l’embauchera dans la foulée ; étincelante constellation de succès et naissance d’abondantes collaborations. Une odeur de sucre délétère dans l’air, retour sur une marque qui n’a pas fini de faire parler d’elle. Yasmine Eslami signe, non sans une adresse certaine, une collection lingerie affriolante, empruntée de coupes simples et raffinées, sublimées par de légères matières, le tout orchestré avec maestria par des campagnes de communication portée par une flopée d’exquises demoiselles. La séductrice marque de lingerie féminine a déjà fait tourner plus d’une tête, insidieuse ivresse et glamour couché sur papier glacé ; Oliver Zahm, le rédacteur en chef du pointu « Purple Magazine » ou encore la très française « Maison Kitsuné » n’ont pas eu grand mal à succomber aux charmes de la jeune, mais mature marque de lingerie au travers de nombreuses collaborations. Ces philtres d’amour en mousseline subliment les femmes et enivrent les hommes, maintenant disponibles au Bon Marché (Paris), Yasmine Eslami aspire désormais à ouvrir une boutique en France et au Royaume-Uni, créer une collection de maillots de bain, et gageons que l’avenir nous le dira... Une collection de vêtements ? Yasmine Eslami a par ailleurs contribué à la collection Homme Vivienne Westwod, présentée à la Fashion Week Milanaise.

"fashion is fast" THROUGH THE parallel's LENS INTERVIEW ADRIEN BELAICH PERFORMER ANNA-SOPHIE BERGER MODEL Ana Kraš
Anna-Sophie Berger for Parallel
Fashion is Fast is not just a true statement, it's a living hybrid of Fashion and Art.
Tell us a bit of you Anna-Sophie, who are you? I am an artist based in Vienna. I have been travelling a lot the last year after having finished my Master of the Arts in Vienna. Most recently to New-York city where my first solo show opened at JTT Gallery. My work is not limited to a specific media, I am a trained fashion designer and include the creation of garments in my practice. They therefore divergate between objects, clothes and sculptures. My work also includes performance and photography, combining all medias freely. Why clothings in Art setting? The question to me is only relevant in one sense: Why display an object that belongs to a moving body in a still setting : The answer would be that a change of context, say from body to wall/gallerie floor enables my objects to communicate different aspects. To undergo a change of context serves a thought process, it isolates things while it excludes others. This is what all fine art is busy with. The reason why I prefer the "Art Setting" to any other setting is the importance of authorship this market allows for.
Both systems are ultimately driven by commercial interests, but different from a design process, as an artist I get to define my own pace and can ultimately put my ideas before practical use. What's the favorite project you worked on? That is normally the most recent one, so I would say the work I created for JTT in New-York. What does â€œFashion is Fastâ€? mean in the context of your collection? It is an ironic as well as rational statement. The whole collection is nurished by real fast fashion, from H&M to Forever 21. I was sick of the elitist concerns of avantgarde fashion, I went and researched uniquely highly commercial structures, online and offline, but also while negotiating what trend is, "Fashion is Fast" is just a true statement. The preferences within a certain consume culture change ever so fast as to create new products, that is to sell new items. While there is good and bad sides to consumption, it definately fuels the creation of the new, in a way even creativity. This ambiguity fascinates me ; the collection is therefore a symbol for as well as a comment on fast fashion, or trend in general.
What are the challenges that prompt you to create? Whatever I do, I am full of ideas. My work is more a destillation process, a making order in the mess that is my creativity, selecting one thing over the other. What were you doing Saturday night? I was in an airplane, coming back from New-York city. Your ten favorite songs? I have one right now: Ariel Pink - Mature Themes ... A last word in french for our readers? Coucou! www.anna-sophie-berger.com

mille neuf cent quatre vingt quatre par Adrien belaich
Toucher soyeux du regard, les œuvres textiles de Amélie Charroin et Marie Colin-Madan, le binôme français de haute volée, incarnent la figure de proue émergente de cette nouvelle caste artistique, racée et subtile qui porte en bandana et monte en amazone. Fer de lance pictural avec leurs imprimés naïfs, géométriques et décentrés, sublimant aussi bien le dessus-de-lit que la peau frissonnante, les carrés de soie brouillent les pistes avec maestria. Foulard au vent, reflet d’élégance raffiné, les motifs 1984 s’étendent de la chemise Hawaïenne aux vues Google Earth. Illuminés par les paysages qui défilent au-delà des fenêtres de la voiture lancée à pleine vitesse sur l'autoroute du soleil, ils représentent une scission des codes graphiques et stylistiques, dimensions hors-normes pour un univers irrationnel et pictural décomplexé. Rêvons en soie envers et contre tous. www.milleneufcentquatrevingtquatre.com

GioRgio Moroder After years of retirement, the legendary Italian songwriter-producer and inventor of synth-disco is back with a brillant contribution on the last Daft Punk album and a new career as a 73-year-old DJ. Tell us a bit of you Richard, who are you? I'm a New York City based, photographer/filmmaker. Let's speak about your career Richard, what's the favorite project you worked on? Every project is fairly equal. Lately, I've been enjoying making music videos. How did you get into films coming from photography, and how did Cinema of Transgression start? I was a film freak before I discovered the art world and decided one day in 1982? to make a movie. That movie was "GOODBYE 42nd STREET". It costs about 35$ to make. I got a good response when I screened it so I kept at it. New York is filled with people looking for weird arty things to do, so it was easy to cast the movies. The idea of Cinema Of Transgression was dreamed up by Nick Zedd. We both were doing the same kind of things so he called it a movement. He believed that if you had a label then people would believe you were for real. Do you have muses? Yes, there is usually at least one woman that is inspiring to me to work with. Usually there are many more. I get inspired by guys too. I know you took photos for adult magazines, what's your difference between porgnography and art? I knew I was going to get paid when I shot for girlie mags. I can't say that about the art world. What's your favorite part about a woman's body? All the parts are great but I have to say that one thing I really look forward to is sleeping next to my wife's naked behind at night. Do you have muses? Yes, there is usually at least one woman that is inspiring to me to work with. Usually there are many more. I get inspired by guys too. Unhealthy curiosity, How to pass a regular working day in studio? Bump it hard? Depends on what's coming up. Right now, i'm trying to figure out how to figure out a project. So I spend a lot of time walking around in the house, sitting at the computer while living inside my head. At the end of the day I don't feel like i've done anything. Like today - it was 6 am and now it's 6 pm and I don't know what I figured out. It's hard to force out the visuals and the ideas cause they come in spurts and you have no way to know when they will come. CrĂŠdits Photos : Olivier Zahm (purple.fr) interview : Adrien belaich

Interview by Adrien Belaich
48 PARALLEL. XXX
Tell us a bit of you Neil, who are you? I am a 29 year old artist based in Los Angeles... When did you first start working as a professional photographer? 2008 was the year I became professional meaning I was taking on assignments for the first time. I think I was 24 years old or something like that. That was an exciting time for me! Your work seems inspired by the seventies, where did you get the inspiration? I get inspired from random things I suppose like anyone does really. In my downtime I enjoy looking at old pulp iconography, classical paintings and other boring things. Lately I've been heavily into a book I picked up titled "Japanische Plakate" which is a collection of work from various Japanese designers over the last century. It's pretty incredible. In two words, what inspires you? Sound Vision.
Do you remember your first shooting? I remember taking photographies as a kid but I'm positive, nothing great came out of those days. You have to start somewhere... Tell us a bit of your career, what's the favorite project you worked on? It's almost always the very last thing I've done or the thing I'm currently working on. I just finished work on Mara Hoffman's Spring '13 Campaign which was a blast, and my third book with Joni Harbeck came out last month so I'm pretty happy with both. What is your favorite place to work? At my house.
What fashion means to you? I think it's incredibly important to photography and visual art but in my everyday life it doesn't mean a great to deal to me. I wear old rock shirts and jeans almost everyday so I'm not really the person to ask. That being said I do have a great respect for designers and their visions.
... A last word in french for our readers? How about my favorite French soundtrack? "Les LĂ¨vres Rouges" by Francois De Roubaix.
Unhealthy curiosity, How to pass a regular working day in studio? Bump it hard? Absolutely. I'm in the studio everyday and my favorite thing is to put on "Dunwich Radio" which is a Swedish guy that puts together the most incredible 45 min. long podcasts. They range from old soundtracks, to psych, jazz, electronics, you name it. I've always been a fan of old records and this guy nails it everytime. It's now become a ritual for me.
Neils's clients include many emblematic fashion and Cinema figures such as Justice, The Scissor Sisters, Pulp Art Book, Boards of Canada, Ratatat or also Invisible Pyramid and Fuel Fandango...
What were you doing Saturday night? Well I'd love to say I was high on Peyote in Death Valley but the truth is I was wrapping up some new artwork for a sleeve assignment. At this point in my life I'm working around the clock so I'm as boring as sliced bread for the most part. Sorry to disappoint you!

Acording to him, Manhattan (New-York City) is so full of amazing people and awesome opportunities: For him, it’s perfect for any young artist. Interview by Adrien Belaich
- Your work seems inspired by the eighties, where did you get the inspiration? Most of my inspiration comes from music. Shlohmo is my main influence right now. The only thing I play when photographing someone is Shlohmo. His music puts me in this odd, but good, mood that helps me create stronger images. It’s hard to explain but music is a big key to a successful shoot. It makes the photographer and subject more comfortable. But other than that I don’t have any other influences. I don’t really like looking at other photographer’s work; only leads to unconscious plagiarism. - Unhealthy curiosity, how to pass a regular working day for you? If it’s not a setup photo shoot, then it’s usually me walking around with my camera. - What's the favorite project you worked on? I just recently shot a new series for The Unlimited Magazine and The Youth Magazine. - What fashion means to you? It doesn’t have any personal meaning to me, I respect all the people in it but also for the past few years . - Aside from photography, you also model. Which do you like better? I’ve always thought modeling was fun, but I’m going to have to go with photography. It’s my escape from reality and an outlet for my creativity. I have a hard time expressing emotion so I do it through my pictures. Put a camera in my hands and I’m unstoppable. - Your ten favorite songs?

RICHARD KERN Le cercle des PoĂŞtes Disparus PHOTOGRAPHE RICHARD KERN www.richardkern.com Credits richard kern
Richard Kern is a tightrope walker, he worked on the wire, hand grasping the lens, shooting the skin texture shivering and ecstatic smile of his countless muses lying on the wriggling negative paper .
We both were doing the same kind of things so he called it a movement. He believed that if you had a label then people would believe you were for real.
Active artist of the underground, he personifies the narrow border of the popular unconscious which disunites erotica photography of the arty pornography, and feeds your imagination with pictures of naked women through its various series. This genius acrobat juggle between his involvement in the New-York famous music scene and its enticing lens at the end of the 1990's. Richard "Porno-Chic" Kern's leitmotif is photographing women - not necessarily accustomed to parade on the catwalk - without denying its visual signature , his video series "Shot by Kern" , designed by Jesse Pearson, head editor of the U.S. magazine " Vice " (2002 - 2010), is a safe bet alongside nuggets as "Hamilton's Pharmacopeia", he also contributed to music videos of Sonic Youth and Marilyn Manson.
I know you took photos for adult magazines, what's your difference between porgnography and art? I knew I was going to get paid when I shot for girlie mags. I can't say that about the art world.
Tell us a bit of you Richard, who are you? I'm a New York City based, photographer/filmmaker. Let's speak about your career Richard, what's the favorite project you worked on?

RAC— ON T ARDS La plupart des gens pensent que les contacts entre dealers se nouent dans les sous-sols de barres d’immeubles glauques en banlieue difficile. Ils imaginent les cages d’escalier recouvertes de graffitis, l’atmosphère lourde de début de soirée, les détritus jonchant les caniveaux, les gamins qui font le guet et les trafiquants armés jusqu’aux dents qui se jaugent avec le doigt sur la gâchette. La plupart des gens se trompent. Si telle était la réalité, les affaires ne seraient pas aussi prospères, et vous ne me compteriez pas au nombre des revendeurs. D’abord, la banlieue, très peu pour moi. Joséphine (Baker, pas l’ange gardien) chantait ses deux amours – pour ma part, c’était la coke et Paris. Les deux me paraissaient aussi indissociables qu’un porte-jarretelles et ses bas. Ensuite, les quartiers sombres mangés par l’asphalte, ça n’était pas non plus ma tasse de thé. J’aurais pu faire un effort, notez, pour éviter de traverser le périphérique, mais il fallait avouer qu’une transaction avait plus de style lorsqu’elle se déroulait au sein d’un grand hôtel parisien. Paiement en liquide, à la journée les palaces se montraient accommodants pour faciliter nos affaires. Et pourquoi pas? Comment pensiez-vous qu’ils parvenaient à tenir la pression, les pauvres ? Lorsqu’on vous traitait plus bas que terre parce que le room service n’était pas parfait ou le champagne correctement sablé, lorsqu’une diva décidait sur un coup de tête de réduire le mobilier de sa chambre en puzzle géant de trois mille pièces, un peu de
coke vous redonnait le sens des perspectives. Ma clientèle à moi jouait dans une autre cour. Il n’empêche, je ressentais toujours un coup au cœur en passant la porte à tambour, en recevant comme un dû le murmure respectueux des employés qui se pressaient pour s’enquérir de mon moindre désir. On trouvait derrière ce protocole un monde que j’avais souvent touché du doigt sans jamais l’intégrer, celui du pouvoir, du fric absolu, des souhaits à peine exprimés et déjà satisfaits. L’univers des businessmen acronymés, PDG, DGA, CEO, CFO, C3-PO... Je supposais que certains narcotrafiquants baignaient dans ce luxe, eux aussi. Pour ma part, je n’étais qu’un modeste maillon de la chaîne. Si j’arrivais à vivre confortablement durant le mois, je ne pouvais rien mettre de côté. Dans un sens, c’était aussi ce qui me protégeait. Trop petit pour avoir de l’importance, trop insignifiant. Personne ne prenait la peine de me flinguer ou de me balancer. L’inconvénient, c’est qu’on tentait parfois de me tromper sur la quantité ou la qualité de la marchandise. Ça faisait partie des désagréments du métier. Il fallait savoir passer pour un con avec grâce. Je jouais très bien ce rôle grâce à de solides prédispositions naturelles. Je récupérai ma carte au comptoir comme n’importe quel client, ignorai les sourires des superbes filles accoudées au bar du patio, puis m’engageai dans l’ascenseur. En temps normal, les femmes ne me laissaient pas indifférent. Mais j’étais déjà en retard, avec un mal de tête qui s’aggravait.
