FilepMotwary: Kira as young photographer, your work is very sharp, very clear and allow me to say, I find it cold, precise yet your images have a deceptive plain "spokenness".. How would you describe your work if I asked you?
Kira Bunse: I photograph what I like. How people see it is a metter of interpretation.
F.M: You just presented your work through an exhibition at 74QUINCAMPOIX , could you tell us more about how this project was first conceived?
K.B: I was sharing this space and we were thinking about showing artists there and now we showed Gosha and some of my work, as well.
K.B: Many collages, projections and framed pictures.
F.M: What in your opinion is so stimulating about photography that so many young artists want to explore it still, generation after generation?
K.B: You can freeze a feeling, a situation and a generation.
F.M: How do you work?
K.B: Very intuitive and often with people I like and find inspirational.
K.B: I was into The Face and i-D from a very young age on and got inspired by this.
F.M: How do you cope with current demands for digital photography and video?
K.B: I use all media. Polaroid and analog I prefere but I work digital a lot.
F.M: You seem to focus to the same subjects and your works seems like a study of the subject, from a different angle. Is that kind of intimacy essential to your work?
K.B: I like to work with people I know and this gives me a kind of comfort.
K.B: I photograph people I like or adore but in the end it is about the result of the picture.
F.M: What matters the most to you when you take a portrait?
