Alessandro Ansuini, how did your passion begin ?
I always thought about photograpy, since from when I’m just a poet. The using of images interesting me a lot. It’s start when the time is mature. How do I say, I keep photography for the middle part of my life. I want to show what I like to see. Just this. Every place can be interested, you can found a world into a nutshell, but If i had to choose one I choose these with natural light, dawn and sunset. I always bring with me my camera. But when I feel I become obsessive, I left it, I don’t like to be a slave of nothing.
Who are your great guys in the job ?
I discover one just now. Terry Richardson is really amazing.
What is your process of artistic creation ?
It's a perfect organized chaos. I work really fast, making a lot of pics at the same time. For the work that join two or more pics, I have to try more.
Do you find easily your models ? What kind of ambiance do you install to warm the often shy atmospher of the beginnings ?
Who found easily the models ? Only Terry Richardson, eheh. I’m a good speaker. I mean, I talk a lot. And when I have hypnotized the model I shot, I don’t like very much the pose.
Do you make many corrections on a long period, or do you find immediatly the sense of your work ?
It depends. Inspiration is a breathe of god, then you have to work with the human things. When I say god. I don’t mean a religious god, but some energy that moves the stars and the other things.
"Totem"How do you know when all is finished ?
Model and Self-Photographer Ladyshave
Model and Self-Photographer Ladyshave
Uh, normal. Let me explain this thing : in my opinion, photography is the most easily and weak of the arts, and when I say weak I mean that everyone can do an amazing photography. Photography is a whore, she accepts all, like the sea in summer.
But at the same time, if you asked me which art makes me feel really emotionated I answer music and photography.
So, when I finish my work I feel normal, because it's not me the artist, but the photography that use me to masturbate himself.
How do you feel when your work leaves you ?
I’m not possessive of my works, but I’m happy if my works provocated reactions, of all kind. When all is finished, I feel like Alice in wonderland, a theft in a desert supermarket, like in the movie Zombie.
What is your artistic dream ?
Makes poetry shot, at the limit between pornography and erotism.
Will you soon participate to an exhibition ?
I made a personal exhibition in Bazzano, into a middleage castle, let me think, in October 2006. And I exposed 2 pics at the Sherer 8 in Berlin, in March 2007, but now the place is closed.
What's for you next ?
I have to prepared an exhibition inside a restaurant in Bazzano called Porta Castello. It can be a strange thing because I put also the video in the restaurant, choose the music for the ambient, and read some poems the first day. The date is for October 2007.
Do you publish ?
Yes, 3 official books, and 12 or 13 with mi independent press. I handmade my books. The first official was "Ronde de la nuit", in 2002, a book of short novels that you can read also at reverse. The second book, published in 2005, is my most big work, is called "Zero". It's a long poem of 256 pages. I don’t put my name on the book. He is anonymous. The last one is "Indagine di uno stalkee a proposito della muraglia cinese", in English sounds like Investigation of a Stalker about the great Chinese wall, and it's a book of poems.
Where can we find your books ?
You can found all this book from my blog, [link]. You can see the images on the right.
Is there happy professional things in your next future ?
Yes ! I want to work hard at my music poems, with my ensemble, Camera mix.
