DnaEuropeFive minutes with Le Turk

Le Turk was born one night simply when listening by chance to Bach's Saint John Passion, nice and loud in headphones.Nothing else matters than that major awakening, that ground-breaking moment.

Tell us about your latest projects “La chute des Empires” and “Le chat noir”

It’s hard for me to talk about my projects. Like all my series, “Le Chute des Empires” was born with visions. A century that echoes our own. An empire collapses, the revolts of the people, the nations be wakened, wars that are preparing. And amid the rubble, a woman, who looks lost his world die. “Le Chat Noir” is a collaboration with “Maison Blackitten”, a fashion house that manufactures lingerie and corsets. I had to adapt to the world of his collection. It was a pleasure, because our universe are very similar. The idea was to refer to the famous cabaret “Le Chat Noir”, and its time (early twentieth century) … Speaking of France … this is my passion.

Because you use a pseudonym? Who is Le Turk?

The Turk is my demon. It’s me, but worse, a tumor of myself. Why this name? It’s a long story …

How did you get interested in photography?

The photograph does not interest me. I love telling stories. And the photo has allowed me to do it more easily than with music or drawing that I used to practice at the time. I ‘m going back to music, drawing and even cinema, little by little, but the photo has allowed me to express myself quickly.

Which artist/photographer inspired your art?

I have already answered this question a dozen times … The artists who inspire me the most are almost all dead … But some of the dead are more alive than my contemporaries. Bach, Fellini, Mozart, Jerome Boch, Otto Dix. Christ. Today what inspires me the most is what I see. You, this absurd world, women, wine …

Could you please tell us something about your technique and creating process?

I have no process. I make myself available to images, visions, characters that already exist. I listen. And I keep a diary, a chronicle of what is happening somewhere, I catch it and I transmit it, that’s all. The rest is a bit of tinkering, trifles, with wood, polystyrene, paint, who cares.

Could you tell our readers how to reach such excellent results in photography?

Yes, of course: they only have to do just like me: Sort this out now!

Can you share what visually appeals to you as a photographer and why you shoot what you shoot?. Can you tell us a little bit about your photography style?

This is a very difficult question. Certainly my audience could answer better than me. I come from the graphic world of comics and painting … I love when the message is strong, almost cartoonish, theatrical. For me, burlesque is the best way to talk to the modern world. Create sets that sound fake, characters trapped in an absurd world, this is the best way for me to talk about this society.

What quick advice do you have for someone who wants to improve his or her photography skills?

Work. Drink. Fuck. Work again and again. Little sleep. Do not listen to anyone. Hold on.

What do you like most about your professional life?

My Freedom.

What do you like the least about running your professional life?

My Freedom…

Thank you for taking the time to talk with us today.

It was a pleasure … [Official Website][Article]
