8 (who?)

Interview with 

I give you all of mine. by Tooga

1. How would you describe yourself in a few words?
I'm Léa, just a 21 year old french girl, who wants to create her universe in her mind, 
with her mood and a little bit inspiration.

2. What does photography mean to you and how did you become a photographer?
Photography means to me that I create for me and not for others: 
indulge yourself, enjoy your art and the others will enjoy it too. 
If you don't like what you make, why should others like it ? 
I became a photographer when I made an artistic "thing" with my hand, with my camera, with my head. 
I don't know when this happened exactly, but it was a day one or two years ago.

3. What does CONCEPTUAL mean to you?
Conceptual is for me the word of idea. One concept can mean a lot to one person
 but it can also express something different to others. 
When you create your idea, others will see your personal vision in your art.

4. What inspires you?
Everything inspire me ! I surf on the photographic web 
and I "eat" pictures (painting, photographies, other..) voracious. 
At my shambolic home I always find an idea: I see an object, a specific colour et cetera 
which inspires me to create . But my friends also inspire me.

Guilt. by Tooga

5. Which of your own work has the most meaning to you and why?
I think the picture below. It was at a turning point in my life and the boy's life to. 
It's the first image I made which I really like it. I don't know why, 
but it's one of my favorites. It is also very actual in my life, 
I don't know where I go, everything changes. Time will show.

Falling. by Tooga

6. Whose work has influenced you the most?
I really don't know,I like differents works, in really differents worlds, 
with really differents techniques. I love Van Gogh, Cartier-Bresson, Gondry, Dali.. 
I think, the most inspirating for me was Magritte. 

7. You often draw at your photos! How come? And what do you think you can express better this way? 
Yes, I draw at my pictures. I use drawing for describing memories, past, or pain, not funny moments in fact. 
I think it's coming if I have to express this in my life. In advance, sorry for the reference.. 
but it's like a patronus in Harry Potter: it is just protection for my characters, and for me.

Les trois points de suspension... by ToogaThe Great Creator. by Tooga

8. Who are your favourite artists and why?
Magritte, for his awesome surrealist universe, Gondry for his incredible manuals creations, 
Jeunet for his personal vision of the world... I really don't know who I prefer.

9. Do you have any ambitious project?
Actually I'm moving to a new city, so.. my ambitious project for the moment is: 
more creations, more motivation, more inspiration, more exposition, and more self confidence.

10. Is there anything else you want to say?
I'm just happy to be here. :) (Smile) Thank you very much !

You are very welcome Tooga! Thank you very much for the interview!
