Am fost intrebat de multe ori daca fotografiez si oameni mai putin familiarizati cu aparatul de foto. Raspunsul meu a fost evident afirmativ si sunt in masura sa vin cu o dovada concreta. La invitatia Uber, mi-am petrecut 6 zile cu soferii afiliati, fotografiind pe 10 dintre ei. Totul s-a transformat intr-un proiect care mi-a devenit foarte drag si pe care imi face placere sa vi-l prezint. Probabil stiti ca soferii de Uber au si alte ocupatii sau pasiuni, iar asta a fost si tema fotografica, sa ii descopar pe acesti oameni cat mai departe de masini si soferie, dar cat mai aproape de preocuparile lor personale.

Evident, pe parcursul realizarii celor 10 imagini, am aflat tot atatea povesti de viata care m-au impresionat. Oamenii acestia sunt cat se poate de diferiti, cu probleme si bucurii dintre cele mai diverse, ghidati dupa sisteme variate de valori, dar foarte sociabili. S-a conturat o idee interesanta, cu totii au fost de acord ca pe langa componenta financiara, Uber are si un alt mare avantaj, interactiunea umana, sansa asta de socializare.

Proiectul a fost expus la Carturesti – Lipscani in luna mai, acum este de vazut la  galeria F64, iar in august va fi expus in Cluj.

Huawei Academy – despre fotografia de moda. http://blog.alexgalmeanu.com/blog/2017/06/27/huawei-academy-despre-fotografia-de-moda/ http://blog.alexgalmeanu.com/blog/2017/06/27/huawei-academy-despre-fotografia-de-moda/#respond Tue, 27 Jun 2017 08:19:35 +0000 http://blog.alexgalmeanu.com/?p=5333

Saptamana trecuta am avut placerea de a tine un curs atipic despre fotografia de moda. La initiativa Huawei, in cadrul Huawei Academy, am utilizat telefoanele P10 in studio, pentru a realiza acest tip de fotografie. Mai jos sunt cateva imagini de la eveniment.

Unele sedinte foto depasesc granitele unor simple job-uri, iar cel de fata este unul dintre ele. Zilele trecute am avut sansa sa fotografiez costume traditionale din Romania, multe dintre ele vechi de peste 100 de ani. Piesele vestimentare fotografiate sunt din colectii private sau apartin unor muzee etnografice din tara.

S-au adunat ceva imagini, le-am pus impreuna si arata bine. Ma gandesc ca e frumos sa vi le arat si voua.

Cei care ma urmaresc pe Instagram stiu mica mea pasiune pentru scarile in spirala. Le-am cautat prin toata lumea si recunosc ca imi face placere sa le gasesc. Pe langa spirala in sine, care ma atrage ca forma si solutie arhitecturala, cred ca este metoda mea de a descoperi locuri noi si de a explora orase. Scarile astea in sine au devenit un motiv de expeditie urbana, experienta care se intampla pe langa realizarea acestor imagini e deja un mic roman. Am descoperit locuri noi, am intalnit oameni, am cautat metode de a accesa cladiri guvernamentale, de birou sau private, am insistat, am gasit solutii, am inventat povesti si am facut tot felul de acrobatii ca sa deschid usile pe care vroiam sa le deschid. Sydney, Melbourne, Berlin, Hong Kong, Singapore, Londra, Barcelona, Bucuresti, sunt cateva dintre orasele pe care le-am explorat in aceste cautari. E una din metodele mele de a-mi petrece vacantele, dar este si ceea ce iese la suprafata din gandurile mele legate de relatia dintre timp si spatiu, vazuta prin fotografie.
