taciturn heart

Post image for taciturn heart

we’ve posted some of marcelo gomes’s work on the blog before-  his photos are breathtaking.  he emailed me recently and told me about his new book, taciturn heart, so i took the opportunity to ask him some questions for the blog!

i was born in brazil, but i’ve been living in the u.s. on and off since i’m 15 years old.

when and how did you get started in photography?

i started shooting very casually when i first moved to new york, around 2003. i worked at a magazine called index here in new york, and i got my first camera then, just for fun.

where do you draw inspiration for your work?

more and more i find that inspiration comes from colors and music, both these things make me want to pick up the camera!

who are your personal favorite photographers/artists?

i love gerhard richter, donald judd, dan flavin, roy andersson, caetano veloso, there are so many…

if you weren’t a photographer, what would you do?

i think if i weren’t a photographer i would be a filmmaker (which could happen anyway) or a windsurfer dude…

what are some of your other hobbies?

music is a very big part of my life, even though i can’t really play any instruments (yet).

I love when you talk about this type of stuff in your blog. Perhaps could you continue to do this?
