Interviews

five interviews on london, photography and sisterhood

Att vara något offentlig på internet betyder att ibland hör folk av sig för att få ens expertutlåtande på saker. Jag har ju turen att få vara på båda sidorna en del så jag tänkte att vi skulle kika på när jag intervjuat och blivit intervjuad den senaste månaden!

I’ve been interviewed and also interviewed a bunch of cool ladiez this past month. All in Swedish though, but either use google translate, or hire me to write more in english! ^^ [email protected]linn mitt london londonsvenskar intervju

 

Först ut intervjuade LondonSwedes mig för deras serie Mitt London. Vi snackar om allt vad London är och betyder för mig och så langar jag en drös tips för nyinflyttade. Läs intervjun här.

 

För det andra skriver jag numera flera artiklar i veckan för Metro Creative, som ni vet, och det är så förbannat himla kul! Alltså kan folk anställa mig forever för att skriva om tuffa brudz och kulturella saker som händer i världen? Här är mina fyra favoriter:

När jag var i Kenya i februari mötte jag upp svintuffa Camilla Wirseen som efter att de senaste åren jobbat i Nairobis slumområde Kibera insåg att lösningen på flickors mens också kan vara det som tar de ur fattigdom och utsatthet. The Cup är projektet om systerskap, menskoppar och att ta vara på mänskliga rättigheter.

Frida-My är en 23-årig fotograf från Stockholm vars analoga fotoserier gjort mig knäsvag och full av avund. Jag var bara tvungen att intervjua henne för alla tips och trix och hemligheter bakom hennes foton. In och läs!

Streetwear har gått från att vara en subkulturell livsstil till en gigantisk modetrend. Jag pratade med Maria Pizzeria om hennes syn på denna kommersialisering och om varför hon anser att streetwear handlar om mer än vad som händer på gatan. Läs här!

babe of the month | chloe sheppard

Babe of the Month is a monthly interview series created to promote inspiring women online.

Interview-with-Chloe-Sheppard-Photographer

Chloe Sheppard is the 19 year old photographer that has taken the Internet and Lana del Rey by storm. I found her dreamy 70s style portraits of her friends one day I was deep into the maze of Instagram and was left breathless. Her photographs capture all the glamour, angst and awkwardness of being a girl in your teens. Therefore I was stoked as she agreed to have an email convo with me. We talk about why that age fascinates her, her obsession with the States and what advice she’d give to other teens out there.

 

I obviously think you rock, but for those unfamiliar with you, how would you describe yourself?

A film photographer obsessed with old American culture, records and roses.

What is it you want to communicate with your work?

Really to begin with I was just taking photos because it was something I found enjoyable and a distraction from other work I should have been doing at the time. But now I’m thinking more consciously about what I’m putting out there, I just want to be inclusive in my work. I want to shoot all types of people who have similar views and ideas to myself.

You only shoot teen girls in quite dreamy settings, tell us about that.

I think because I’m quite close to turning 20 and no longer being a teenager, I feel like I’m losing something. Perhaps I’m more drawn to capturing teenage girls because I would have liked to have been captured in a similar way when I was that age.

 

Looking back at your journey, what advice would you have given to your 13 year old self?

It’s cliche, but probably to stop worrying what people think. And to not get so wrapped up in petty things when there is so much more to life. To never take things, or people, for granted.

Photographer-Chloe-Sheppard-Interview

I would also say that your photos and videos has quite a glamorous 70s LA feel to them. What is it with the states and/or that decade that fascinates you?

That’s always a vibe I try and incorporate into a lot of my work. I love the states. When I was younger I wasn’t so well travelled outside of the UK, but all the things I was into, like musicians etc were all from America, so I just associated it with them and thought of it as this great land. Now I’m older, just a lot of the visions I have for my work fit well with certain places over there that it just feeds my infatuation I guess.

Also a lot of the music I grew up listening to, and still listen to now, was from the 70s, so I feel attached to it in some way even though I wasn’t alive through it at all. The clothing style too, oh and the cars, I’m just in love with it all. I have so much love for America now, but I think it looked a lot nicer back then.

What is the best thing about being a female photographer?

I think I get to connect with other female photographers and artists in such a special way because of it. I feel like we automatically trust each other because we understand the way we work. I’m also super shy, and the thought of directing a boy on a shoot makes me beyond nervous haha.

 

What cultural touchstones i.e. books, films, events, have been influential in shaping you and your work?

The movie Thirteen definitely influenced my aesthetic a lot as I watched it when I was very young. It’s literally one of the greatest films and carries such a good message as well as being beautifully directed. Same with the movie Dazed and Confused. I partly blame it for my obsession with the seventies. Other than that, it’s mainly music I’m inspired by. I hear songs and lyrics which either make me want to create photos/videos to match them, or to photograph the kind of person I feel would listen to the same songs you know?

I heard that your dream came true and our all ultimate crybaby Lana del Rey followed you. Tell us about that!

Ah yeah it was crazy! I’d just got off the phone when it happened and I almost dropped my phone I was so ecstatic. I had met her in London and gave her a copy of my zine, as parts of it are so heavily influenced by her. Then the next day she followed me and I was just like… speechless.

I have tweets from when I was like a super lame 15 year old saying how I’d die if she ever followed me. I was so obsessed.

 

This feature is about highlighting inspirational women so I’d like to know who are your biggest girl crushes are and why.

Well besides the obvious one of Lana Del Rey, I l o v e Jane Birkin. She is such a beautiful person, both inside and out. I watched a video of her once and she said something like “I’ve been given such a privileged life that I feel it’s only fair I give something back” and from then on dedicated herself to helping humanitarian charities.

Also Penny Lane from Almost Famous. She lived my dream life and I still to this day wish I could be the real life version of her.

Any final advice for all aspiring kickass women out there?

Keep doing what you’re doing. Even if you think you’re getting nowhere, you’re always going somewhere. And don’t forget to keep appreciating the other kickass women around you.

analogue stories | Saga, July 2015

I’ve developed four rolls of film with my new Fuji DL-190. It is so exciting with analogue pictures, but I definitely want to invest in better film. Has anybody got a recommendation of fairly low priced light contrast film?

Some photos I particularly liked from this batch were a few I took of my lil sis Saga, whom I interviewed before about what it is is like being 14. Saga-in-July-2015,-StockholmSaga-14,-Stockholm-2015Saga,-Stockholm-2015

The windows were wide open, a warm summer evening breathing through it. The room was empty apart from her suitcases standing packed along the walls and the lone mattress on the floor. Just weeks before her and my parents would move back to Kenya.

As she got ready to meet her friends we talked about eyebrows and 14 year old boys sending out party invitations through Snapchat by throwing money out their parents windows. Saga tutored me in how to use the make up brushes like they say on youtube but would stop midway through to show me a new R&B track she’d found. She stood in front of the mirror shouting I LOVE MY EYEBROWS following up with a dance routine. I’m telling you, this new generation of girls will reach the stars.

Many of you who follow me on snapchat saw this in real time. If you also want to follow me my username is linn.wiberg

MINI DOCUMENTERIES FEATURING INSPIRING WOMEN

So I’m a sucker for mini documentaries and addicted to video interviews with interesting people. Unfortunately going through vimeo, nowness or any other channel there are mostly men who get featured. And that’s interesting too, but it makes me sad because women are obviously just as inspiring.

So I will start gathering videos I find of wicked women for you to enjoy. Here is the first, hope you like it!

The photographer Jessica Lehrman who grew up travelling around in an RV with her hippie parents and has such a relaxed view on photography. COOL CHICK!

The humble Canadian internet queen Petra Collins talk about the digital outrage around her pubic hair and her struggle with body image.

Nikki Lane is a performer, business owner, traveller, tv presenter, fashion retailer etc etc. A true entrepreneur and I wish someday to be able to survive on doing a little of everything I like.

Clara is the most badass 16 year old I’ve ever heard of. She goes to dirty punk gigs to sell vegan cupcakes and she’s making it big! <333

This collaboration and discussion between make up artist Mila Victoria and blogger Chantelle Silva about being fierce and creative.

What do you reckon? Have any you like that you can recommend?
