We call it the #ICMEETSERIES and thought it would be interesting to find out a bit more about the people behind the disposables. We asked a few IC contributors to tell us a bit about themselves and this is what we got in return…
IC MEET SERIES – Q+A with…
Who are you?
Anna Murciano Pérez
I’m from Barcelona, Spain.
What do you do for a crust?
I’m a filmmaker so now I’m working as a freelance in my own projects and with many other people.
Can you tell us about your creative background?
I always loved photography, filmmaking, graphic design, painting and many other artistic activities so I decided to study design.
Best advice you’ve ever been given?
Do what makes you happy and smile.
What do you do with your free time?
Tips for making your ideas and dreams come to life…
If you want it just do it.
What inspires you to shoot film?
The fact that nowadays you can take lots of pictures with your phone but… there’s nothing better than taking a picture, wait to finish your roll, print them and keep them forever.
How did you come to connect with Indisposable Concept?
I started with disposable cameras because of a friend of mine, we use to take pictures together and then he found your project on the internet.
How did you find the experience of using the disposable camera?
Enjoyable or painful? ENJOYABLE! But also painful because you never know what is going to happen.
When shooting with disposables/film, how does it make you feel not being able to see the photos as they are taken?
That’s the best sensation ever.
Analogue Vs Digital? What do you prefer and why?
Both. I work in the audiovisual world and I have a good digital camera that I use to work but i always have my disposable or one of my analogs in my bag.
It seems film photography and disposables are making a comeback, why do you think that is?
Because we all have a smartphone and maybe we are getting tired of all the pictures we take everyday. In that sense, pictures have no value unless you can’t see them.
If someone destroyed all the disposable cameras in the world and you had the very last one, what would you capture?
It depends on the moment, on where you are…
What does the future hold for you?
Now I’m finishing my holidays in México and I just wanna go home and print my rolls! After that… hopefully a lot of work and interesting projects.
How would you describe your photographic style?
Who or what influences you creatively?
Many art directors, old and young talented people, unknown people, Petra Collins, Gaspar Noe, Leo Adef, @lalovenenoso…
Where do you find inspiration?
Creative people, instagram, books, magazines, films, streets, travelling, friends…
