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?
Mystic question = dumb answer:
Probably even before buying my first camera… photography for me is done with “living subjects” 80% of the time.
I admit I’ve also tried taking picture of cats, flowers, sunsets… but results were never exciting.
What is the first thing you do when you wake up?
“Feeling like a lion today? Well, take it easy”.
Does your mother appreciate your works?
She appreciates some of my pictures, not others. Try guessing which ones she doesn’t! 😉
A movie that we should watch.
“Deconstructing Harry” (Do I have to say that it is by Allen???), or “Continental Divide” starring Belushi.
Who is your “dream model”? Where would you love to set your shooting?
Gegia…who else?? [ndr http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gegia]
Do you believe in fate?
More than in fate, I believe the “3C” rule: be bloody lucky (Culo), know your stuff (Conoscenza), be skilled (Capacità). You can call it however you like.
Are you usually turned on by the girl you are shooting?
Yes, but not because they are naked. Rather because they are, or at least they are trying to, say something. This is essential for me to decide whether to work with them or not.
Name three photographers that you consider masters.
Boring question, I don’t want to answer. Even better I will say Fontana, there are more than three with this last name so you can pick the one you prefer.
I was tempted to say Adams, but I’would stick to Italy. Did you know that Bryan Adams is also a photographer, don’t you? Yes, exactly, the singer…
Did any girl ever get mad at you because she was looking “ugly” in your pictures?
No, at least no one ever told me that! Usually we decide the “genre” together before shooting. I avoid surprises, I don’t like them, and it has never happened that a naked girl had come to my house (but if anyone wants to fix this, it sounds fun to me).
What do you do in your free time?
Photography takes a great part of my free time. I do something else for a living. The rest of the time, I live like a young dumb italian guy, going to the pub, the restaurant, watching movies, playing futsal… things like that.
What is the difference between a good nude picture and an amazing one?
I don’t know. If only I knew how to answer this question, I would start taking amazing pictures.
I don’t want to talk about the “communication medium”, also because I’m not prepared for this… You can re-read the answer number 6, maybe it will help you understand.
Do you remember your dreams in the morning? Are you able to interpret them?
Sometimes, but not often. I’m not telling them you, or else you will get me locked up.
Your biggest fault.
Being born in Italy.
The second one, believing in Ray Banhoff and taking part in this tragicomic interview.
What does your partner think about your work?
Nothing at all, also because now I’m single, but optimistic: even Maso [ndr Pietro Maso] got married, so…
By the way, if you really want to know, the scum bag I was dating, she wasn’t contrary, actually she quite appreciated it, not all of it, thanks god. She had critical sense.
