AURORA GOES WILD WITH
unusual interviews in the Pussy Pusher’s style.
When did you decide to start shooting girls? What was your “mental process” behind the decision?
From the beginning, I immediately started to photograph girls, everything came by itself, there was no mental process.
What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
I light up a cigarette.
Does your mother appreciate your pictures?
She says she does, but I have some doubts.
A movie that we should watch.
“Je, tu, il, elle”. A film of the 1974 by Chantal Akerman
Who is your “dream” model? Where would you love to set your shooting?
I haven’t a specific model I’d like to photograph, I usually try not to photograph models but normal girls, more spontaneous and suitables for my photos. About the locations, lately I have some ideas about outdoors places, like deserts or something similar.
Are you keeping your work secret to someone?
No I don’t, should I?
Are you usually turned on by the model you are shooting?
Of course I am, or I wouldn’t shoot them. But it’s something that finish when the shooting ends.
Name three photographers that you consider masters.
Araki, Eric Kroll, Dash Snow.
Did any model ever get mad at you because she was looking “ugly” in your pictures?
No, it never happened. But sometimes they ask me not to publish some pictures because they think they looks ugly in them, probably this is a personal paranoia. But usually they’re happy with the final result, fortunately.
What do you do in your free time?
I usually love to go to the seaside, so peaceful, far from everything.
What is the difference between a good nude picture and an amazing one?
It’s difficult to answer to that, but instinctively I think it should be something new, clean, an idea that is different from everything you can see around. But it depends. I also love strong, explicit but not vulgar photos.
Who is, in your opinion, the most overrated nude photographer? And the one who is not appreciate yet?
I really don’t know. I don’t look too much around, photography talking. But I see there are a lot of people that shoot nudes, without a personal route or professional bases. They just start to shoot nudes, maybe because it’s just a whim to accomplish.
Your biggest fault.
What does your partner think about your work?
She likes my work, it is another part of me.
Do you remember your dreams in the morning? Are you able to interpret them?
I never remember what I dream. And it is better to do not examine my clear headed dreams, too much chaos.
