采访日期: 2014年12月01日

Mira Heo 她是一个有点孤独的女生,2009 年毕业于首尔建国大学,在韩国、荷兰、英国等地都办过展览,2014 年出版个人第一本摄影集(2007~2013),她叫 Mira Heo。一系列充满自我审视意味的自拍照片,看上去简单,但其实是她无数次失败之后的作品,她说真实的自拍很不容易,但她最爱的一句话叫做:永!不!放!弃!

Mira Heo 的摄影作品集

关于 Mira 本人和最疯狂的事

我来自韩国,我喜欢贝纳多·贝托鲁奇和坂本龙一,当然还有很多艺术家我也喜欢。关于最疯狂的事,很多年前,我在海边对某人说:“如果你爱我,就跳到海里去吧!”我是开玩笑的,结果他真的那样做了。

我的恐惧即是我本身。我的希望则是我和你。而我的梦想,是感到越来越快乐,并且为人们制造快乐。-Mira Heo

关于创作的故事与灵感

其实我都不记得了。我就是需要一些例子,来展示我的所见所想,我看过辛蒂·雪曼(美国知名女摄影师、艺术家、导演)的自拍照,然后我就开始了我的创作。不过,我也并没有受到她多大影响。我也都不知道自己到底拍了多少,我从 2005 年开始用胶卷相机拍照,估计拍了不止 3 万张吧!也不都是自拍,也有拍别人的。

创作中的良师益友

我就是喜欢艺术。艺术,就是我的老师,我的朋友。

关于创作环境

我并不喜欢自己现在所处的环境。不过,首尔到时一个拍照不错的地方,尤其是汉江。

常常独自拍照

我目前没有加入任何创作团体,我常常都是一个人。不过,我也希望找到好的 “组织”。

新近计划

我正在筹备明年新的摄影集,一部是自拍照片集,另一部是女性肖像的摄影集。主题都是关于女性肖像的。这一本摄影集应该会小些,成本也比我第一本摄影集会低一点。我的照片所表达的就是最原始的东西,属于 Mira Heo 原创的力量。

关于自拍的提示

要做到真实的自拍是很困难的,尤其是对焦常常失败,我也经常出废片,这方面也没有很好的建议。不过可以分享一下我自拍的方法,我通常使用三脚架和遥控器,但是使用遥控器拍摄的时候,总会出现聚焦在别处的情况。而我使用的是胶片相机,所以就更困难了。虽然试过很多次,但经常失败,有时也要拜托朋友或其他人帮忙,而且要在拍摄之前先沟通好我想要的效果,这样会相对容易拍出想要的照片。

关于日常生活

我每天拍照也会拍一些商业照片,都是以肖像为主。

给摄影入门者的建议

很难说。就去做你想做的吧!

ChokStick: Tell us about yourself, your studio, where are you from, your favorite movie or music band, the craziest thing you’ve done before?

Mira: I’m from Korea. I like Bernardo Bertolucci, Ryuichi Sakamoto and so many artist. So many years ago, at beach I said someone, If you love me, go into that sea. I was just kidding, but he was done. 

ChokStick: Tell us about the story behind your works. Where does your inspiration and creativity come from? How many photos you have been taken until today? Do you have any record?

Mira: I don’t remember exactly. I just needed some model for showing what I want, think. And I saw Cindy Sherman’s self-portraits. And I started. But I’m not influenced by her so much.  I don’t know how many exactly. I started shooting at 2005, with film camera. Maybe I have 30000 cut more. It’s not only ‘self’.

ChokStick:Have you had any mentors along the way? Have you taken any big risks to move forward?

Mira: Well, I just like ‘ART’. That is my mentor, my friend.

ChokStick:How does the living environment impact your creativity? Any unique scenes in Seoul you usually took photos?

Mira: I don’t like my environment so much. But Seoul is good for taking photos, especially Han-River.  

ChokStick:Is it important to you to be part of a creative community of people? Do you have a community that you get together with regularly?

Mira:I don’t have a creative community. I’m usually alone. But I want to have a good creative community. 

ChokStick:Tell us about your latest project. Is there anything you’d like to try in the next 3 years? What do you want to say or express through your photographs?

Mira:I plan my new photo book in next year. It’s about Women Portrait. Maybe the one is self portrait, the other one is girl portrait. And It will be smaller and cheaper than 1st photo book. All I want to say is Originality, Mira Heo’s. 

ChokStick:Are there any tricks of taking photos of self-portrait you can share with us? What has been the biggest risk you’ve taken to move forward?

Mira:Real self-portrait is very difficult. Focusing, composition is failed often. I don’t have good tip for other people.  
저는 셀프 포트레이트를 찍을때 삼각대와 리모컨이 있는 릴리즈를 사용합니다.
대략적인 구도를 생각한 후 리모컨을 작동시켜 촬영을 합니다. 그렇기 때문에 초점이 맞지 않거나, 구도가 틀리는 경우가 많습니다.
또 필름 카메라를 사용하기 때문에 더 어렵습니다. 여러번 해봤지만 자주 실패합니다.
그래서 친구나 다른 사람에게 구도를 말해주고 내가 원하는대로 촬영해달라고 부탁합니다.
그렇게 촬영하면 마음에 드는 사진을 더 쉽게 얻을 수 있습니다.

ChokStick:What is your typical day look like?

Mira:I do some commercial work (portrait) every day.

ChokStick:What are your favorite quotes that motivate you all the time?

Mira:Never Give up.

ChokStick:What advice would you give to a young person, or anyone, starting out in photograph?

Mira:Difficult question. Just do you want!
