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).

Imagine speaking to your fans and seeing them cringing
away because you smell like an ashtray. The main reason is that the store
takes great care while choosing the best fabric
for the dresses. It can be daunting to keep up with fashion in changing times.
