Beatriz Colomina has written the following in Domus
Le Corbusier was one of the first global jet set, the details of the jetliner influencing his designs. The exhibition shows us how the high vistas of his transatlantic journeys also provided new points of view; the aeroplane nothing less than “a flying camera lucida” (curator, J.L. Cohen) whose perspectives would feed into his overarching visions.
She continues to be a major reference point and inspiration for this investigation of mine.
Currently shooting finnair for Helin & Co. They have been wonderful to work for in terms of respect, clarity, reliability, remuneration and interpersonal relationships. Together with MJP I would put them as my top favourites, as far as work goes. They are consummate professionals.
On the other hand, their designs are conservative (though again here they produce a high quality produce with every last detail carefully considered and overseen during construction) and this reflects in the type of photography they commission. I have now shot the parliament for them, two villas, 2 corporate headquarters with a third coming up in November. I understand and appreciate their work. But I cannot push the envelope for fear of pushing my luck. Herein lies the paradox. I am least adventurous for the best clients and more adventurous for the worst. A stake in what you are doing must be looked at as the underlying reason for all this conservative behaviour in commissioning, shooting, publishing.
HOWEVER, I have sent them a few graphic ones. Let’s see if they slip through…
published but not paid. i think this is still a good way for young photographers to get seen and get started: http://smoda.elpais.com/articulos/la-rebelion-de-los-becarios/3704
