CARLOS MANUEL GASPAROTTO
Where are you from? Where do you live?
I was born in Santa Fe, Argentina. I grow up in Italy, living between Milan and Lodi. Now I’m staying in the small village of Alfombra, Costa Rica.
How old are you?
How do you pay your bills? Are you working as a professional photographer?
Good question. One year ago I had what in Italy is called ‘un colpo di genio’: after a degree in Design I quit my job and I decided to dedicate my life to photography. I took all the money I had and some from my family as well. I started to travel and to work on my own project. I paid all the bills, before all my foods, everywhere I have lived! I’m trying a professional carrier, we will see..
What cameras do you use?
An old Nikon d90, a Mamiya c330 and an Olympus OM10.
Any photographer or artist inspiring you?
Luigi Ghirri, Davide Monteleone and Tim Hetherington. Werner Herzog and Terrence Malick. Chris Cunningham and Nathalie Djurberg.
What/who do you enjoy to shoot the most?
Everything (situations, people and objects) helps me to tell a story.
Do you believe in god?
Not yet. First I need to believe in me.
What do you drink on a night out?
In order: some pint of beer, some mojito and some Laphroaig.
Do you like dancing?
Yes, sure.. in the gap between the mojitos and the Laphroaigs!
What’s your favorite first name?
Are you a fashion addicted?
I’m addicted to few right clothes.
What’s your favorite tv series?
Boardwalk Empire, but I’m still waiting for someone who has to upload me the second season. So, if anybody has it.. 😉
Recommend us a book.
The Pledge by Dürrenmatt.
What’s the country of your dreams?
Scotland, but I’ve never been there. I like to listen to the people who have been there talking about those lands.
Have you ever been to Iceland?
What song would you choose for a slideshow of your work?
No song, please. Me explaining my work and hopefully good critics are better!
Ask yourself a question. Tell me your answer (like Marzullo does)
What’s the plan for tomorrow?
Do it better.
