Photography by Paula Marchesini

May 09, 2016

Paula is an Argentinian photographer who works with alternative processes and photographs collected from old family albums to later intervene or relocate them in order to create new narratives. In this way, Paula rediscovers and reinterprets her past transporting us to a world that seems very distant and surreal. Next we want to present the interview we had with Paula: am - First of all thank you very much for your contribution to our project. Could you please tell us where are you from and what do you do at the moment? PM - I’m from Argentina and although I don’t make a living with photography, I find the time to devote myself to artistic film photography. Currently I’m working on a new series based on beach locations. am - How did you start in photography? PM - I don’t remember specifically when did I begin with photography because it is something that I do as long as I can remember, since I was little. am - Could you explain us a bit about your creative process? How do you choose your images? Do you work with collected images from family albums or where do you find them? Do you later intervene these photos? PM - I usually take new photographs of children and landscapes with the idea of achieving a dreamlike, unreal and timeless atmosphere. I also collect photographs from old family albums and sometimes intervene them or develop the pictures in different ways. am - What inspires your work? PM - I’m normally inspired by childhood, the past and dreams. am - Who are your favourite photographers / artists? PM - My favorite artists are Eugène Atget, Julia Margaret Cameron, Deborah Turbeville, Sally Mann, Paolo Roversi, Francesca Woodman, Miroslav Tichý and I really like Andrei Tarkovsky Polaroid photography. am - How would you describe your visual language? PM - Dreamlike, surrealist and timeless. am - What are 5 things you could absolutely not live without? PM - My family, pets, camera, without traveling and without my computer. am - If you could travel and stay in a place for one year, where would you choose to go? PM - If I had to choose a place to live for a year it would be in the Balearic Islands, Formentera. am - Favourite songs / bands at the moment? PM - My favorite song is an old one called La Mer, by Charles Trennet and my favorite band is The Beatles. am - What’s your favourite movie? PM - Cinema Paradiso. am - What’s your favourite author? PM - Julio Cortazar. am - What’s your favourite season and why? PM - Spring, because the weather is mild, and nature begins to bloom. am - Gin, vodka or tequila?
