Soraya Moussaoui. Palm the most exclusive parties in the world, ten editions by soundtrack to the Mercedes Benz Madrid Fashion Week, old pasarela Cibeles fashion shows; or in 080 Barcelona, are some of the places in which Gerard Estalleda leaves its mark.

I appreciate it because so I can escape and take pictures in the backstage”, joked. 

The fashion world has the reputation of frivolous, but intimidates it most Estalleda face to the public in general as he faced last night. “The Village gives respect. You have a public of all ages and should be content to all. People is not stupid and knows what he wants, not is can get you music with a shoehorn”, he said. “Parades parties – New York, Paris or London are a few of their destinations – you already you have caught the style of the guests. Fortunately or unfortunately, I’ve been seven years forming part of them”, he added.
Gerard Estalleda is defined as a “photographer-social-documentary”. Imported fashion New Yorker of photos at parties capturing “the ´canallismo´ of the moment” in Barcelona a few years ago and since then “everything has been taking shape. Having created a more or less unique style is what me apart from the rest”.
The next edition of the Madrid fashion show kicks off on September 13. Estalleda is already at work.“The coming week I have meetings with Custo for her fashion show in New York. For Cibeles already I have started, although many do not have the designs,”said the photographer.

What happens in your brain when you take pictures?

Very few people know exactly what happens in our brains when we do something: reactions to sexual stimuli, areas that are triggered by memories or the process that is generated to tell a lie, among many other things. Way back in, while you do all those things naturally, they move the cables that determine everything.

As I like photography, above all other things I do, I wanted to close options and find out what happens in my brain since I start looking for a beautiful landscape or a portrait possible. How much have to see the photos I took with my memory?How much is edited my mind when I edit a picture? How important is photography for human relationships? Joshua Sarinana is a neuroscientist, amateur photographer and researcher at Harvard University with a very serious focus on memory and learning and brain supplement genius x. I talked to him to tell me what the brain process a photographer (the before, during and after).

VICE: How did you start to study the brain in relation to photography?
Joshua Sarinana: My interest in neuroscience has always been focused on memory, and that was born from my inclination towards philosophy. The camera is a very good metaphor for memory, because that’s what you’re doing: capturing an image forever. The more I became interested in neuroscience, I learned more about how memory works. My pictures began to focus increasingly on how memory changes and how it is updated. When I look at old photographs remind me of the time I spent in Paris, for example, and I remember the events that took place as he took that picture. Now, 14 years into the future, that information is simply updated because that is the way the brain works: Every time you remember a moment, that memory can be changed, because when the reactive brain causes it to become malleable. Many times new information can be inserted into this memory: I think that’s how a picture serves to remember something that happened, funneling the ability to update your past with your present.

Do you think a person taking photos during a trip or a party has a better memory of events that a person who has been there but did not take pictures?
I think so. There is evidence to prove this. Microsoft did a study with people who have some damage to the hippocampus, the part of the brain that is responsible for keeping autobiographical memories. The hippocampus does not have the data that you learned in school or things you know about your loved ones, but the information that is part of your personality. Patients in the experiment did not have the ability to generate these reports. The experiment was to hang a camera around his neck to the people with this deficiency in the hippocampus and asked them to look photos at night. The memories are not faded, as if would in any other way: can withhold information about what happened during the day much longer.

Phillip Toledano’s father. Every time she looked in the mirror, it was not recognized because in his mind was still 20 years. Toledano says that although distressed whenever I saw her reflection, a few minutes he forgot and soothed. Photo by Philip Toledano.

When you look at a picture, the image is saved in place other than the hippocampus?
Yes, that’s the original idea. It is not yet known, it is completely unknown. It may be a little more sensory memory. Then, if it is more sensory, emotions are not so connected to the moment. I think there is much potential for this type of research. It is important to understand how we remember events of our lives.

Let ‘s talk about photo editing. In an experiment you did, you edit a photograph of a boy and his father in the garden and put mounted in an air balloon. You asked the son, who was already an adult, if you remember this picture. What happened there?
It works like this : the person at first will not remember the moment when you ask to look at the fake photograph. But the hippocampus, which is a part of very important also for imagination brain is activated, and can create a memory from imagination. You will not believe it’s real. It happens subtly and unconsciously.

The original photograph of a father and son (left) and the photo showed the child as part of the experiment (right). Photo via .

And he invented a memory with this new picture?
A few weeks after I said that he remembered nothing, the son began to tell methings out of context. He said it must have been about six years that her sister probably had ten. He recalled that near his school offered air balloon trips, then told me the place where the event occurred. He also told me it was her mother that was on the floor taking the picture. The act of imagination caused the memory was formed. There was no question of imagining intentionally, but from the moment he saw the photo and felt an empty memory, imagination was activated in the hippocampus and created a memory.

How much do I have to edit a photo to change my mind? If I correct the colors of a photograph, my memories of that time are also going to be more vivid?
It’s hard to say. When I go back to my photographs, or take a photo and edit and then I look back after a year, I remember the original photo, but the edited photo.I always remember me photography post production and sometimes I look at the original photo and reached a surprise because I do not remember it that way, but it more closely resembles what it looked like in reality.

Can it happen that a person cuts a photo and then not remember that person was originally yes there?
Yes, exactly.

Or if you edit a photo and puts it in black and white, then when he recalls the moment he remembers the image in black and white and does not remember the color scheme that was the actual scene.
Yes, it’s a good point.

Is that knowledge of the brain has helped you in your work as aphotographer?
Interact. I have some images that are more personal, dealing with issues from my past, and those pictures can reflect on my past and understand it more. Then I know that whenever I think about my past, I am constantly changing it and also the way I remember. Every time I take a picture, I always think how I will remember in the future. What part I will agree when you see this picture in the future? Am I going to remember the positive things or negative things? I always wonder how I will generate a story from my photos in the future. That is one aspect. The other is attention. When I take a picture I immediately think how I’ll edit, how can I change or alter the colors or within what series I’m going to get.Understanding the brain mechanisms behind this, I think not necessarily impact my picture directly, but help me understand how my photography, in order to organize my images in a story.

I read it was the prefrontal cortex which is responsible for predicting future events according to information you already know. So if I’m going to take a picture, and say that I’m looking at a subject that is moving, try to predict how that subject is going to move and try to calculate what is the best time to take the picture. How important is this process for a photographer?
Pay attention always going to be super important for a photographer. In direct picture you have to very quickly anticipate the movement of someone. We must be very attentive to human behavior. But that mindfulness, after you’re taking pictures a long time, it becomes intuition, which is unconscious. The prefrontal cortex is important for learning and anticipating what is street photography.When intuition becomes, however, the prefrontal cortex still important.

Let’s talk about selfies. Some psychologists say that the more selfies a person is narcissistic is taken. What do you think from the point of view of neuroscience?
I think taking selfies is something natural. I do not think it’s as bad as people say it is. Obviously there are extreme cases. There was a guy who tried to kill himself because he failed to see his selfie is perfect. But this happens in people who are compulsive: if they have the technology, they would choose another activity.

You write about anxiety disorder and equipment purchases at photographers. Is that feeling is increased by the amount of photos we see and competition we have?
I think people are afraid to be creative. Me too I’m afraid to take unoriginal photos, or continue taking similar photos. People feel very anxious to be creative, because being creative means to get out of what you have already done. You have to do something completely new, and that is very scary. One way in which we deal with this anxiety, or the fear of potential failure is to try to feel good.Then we do something like buying a new camera. I feel good after buying a camera. It is the same feeling of having a glass of wine after a stressful day at work, but buying is more expensive photographic equipment. But that’s just a crutch. It is a way to avoid doing something that causes us anxiety.

You tell me about mirror neurons.
This is a cognitive area we are trying to understand and that takes place in the temporoparietal junction. There is a parallel phenomenon of cognitive, called “mirror neurons.” These neurons are activated when someone is imitating someone else, or even looking at another person and are in the parietal posterior cortex: they are interesting because they give us the ability to imitate other people. Mimicry is important to understand how people feel. If I see someone who is sad, the same muscles that are activated in your face to show that sadness, are to be activated in mine, and, to a lesser extent, make me feel sad.When you see the picture of a sad person, reading their emotions, the muscles of your face will imitate that person. You feel connected. The same happens in the movies.

Let ‘s sad to see this photo. Photo via Flickr.

At one point you wrote “images that reflect our connectedness in a world that can be so inhuman as ours.” What did you mean?
My point was that photography is important to emotionally connect with each other. The reason why war photography is important is because it implies that there are atrocities that are happening, where people are dying. We have to see these pictures to try to feel how it feels and thus not to repeat certain actions. It is good not hurt between us, so we are very good at it. My point is that photography can make us empathize with other people and that is important to help us connect with others mechanism. The world is very inhumane, there is much injustice, many wars. Photography helps us somehow to be better.

10 FILMS TO INSPIRE PHOTOGRAPHERS

6a00d8341bfb1653ef017eea16e63b970d

How we mentioned in the post dedicated to the inspiration for photography from other disciplines, the cinema, as seventh art that is, has always been a resource important when looking for references that help us to complete our photographic practice.

Directors of photography, large forgotten, make it possible to the frames of a movie arriving to us from an narrative and visual, staging through levels that allow that we can enter in the argument and the acting.

For this reason we want to share a series of films, some of them always recurring in lists of this type, other less present but also with loads of inspiration. All of these films below are available in HD and free to watch movies online, please visit us on projectfreetv.

PARIS, TEXAS

 

paris-texas

 

 

One of the tapes with more presence on the lists of movies with best picture, we mostly traps because wraps the history within a landscape that makes us crazy as lovers of American culture. Frames that take us into the work of photographers like Eggleston by its chromatic variety and that part road movie, which makes us dream with scenarios that are presented to us, and whose start is one of the most fascinating of the history of the cinema. The arid, the character far which draws near, references that have been transferred to wedding photography. Not forget other Win Wenders titles as his wonderful “The sky over Berlin”, the narrative exercise that makes from black and white to color, and because it also has some memorable shots.

BARRY LYNDON

 

BL2

 

We talk of Barry Lyndon in the career of the great Kubrick because undoubtedly affects us as wedding photographers in ways that directly have to do with the lighting. A movie which was recorded with natural light and even in some moments with the single light source that gives a candle. Apart pictorial aesthetics and style leads directly to the revival that photography is experiencing at the moment. Surely there is more thugs titles within the Filmography of the director as “Full metal jacket”, whose way to bring us the order to chaos is beautifully worked thanks to the photographic staging, or other films such as “2001: a space Odyssey”, who have so influenced in recent movies such as “Gravity”, but that little more can add a flawless masterpiece.

THE DOG IN THE MANGER

 

el-perrod-el-hortelano-show

 

This film by Pilar Miró leads us to speak of many aspects, on the one hand to link it with this idea of aesthetics that we set at a certain time, the Spanish golden age, to dive again in the retro, and to look at language as a “couple” between Emma Suárez and Carmelo Gómez, but at the same time helps us to know the sensational one of our best directors of photography work , Javier Aguirresarobe, insurance will remember that “Mar” plane in with Javier Bardem flying through the forest, or the claustrophobic drawings of “The other”. For this film he used a series of scale models as well as other solutions to help you on the picture. An exceptional work, an equally exceptional director.

SEX AND LUCIA

 

Lucia-Y-El-Sexo_23266_4ea5e34a4f13c137cc0012d7_1320382561

 

Julio Medem could not miss as the creator of Spanish tapes with a very captivating aesthetic. In this sense, we could speak of Pedro Almodóvar, who takes care of those details up to the end and that linking with Aguirresarobe, in “Hable con ella” made a spectacular exercise. But returning to Lucia, is interesting for the work carried out in part focused on the island of Formentera, giving prominence to light, very white and overexposed, which inspires us by that director capacity to innovate in and out of the established Canon. Who does not risk, does not win. And if not they tell is with the complex history of “The lovers of the Arctic Circle”.

THIRST FOR EVIL

 

sed7

 

Return to America, this time with another great visual and narrative level given by the film industry, no more and no less than Orson Welles. Their flat initial sequence is simply outstanding and inspirational, especially for the wedding videographers, that Yes, you need a large crane. But we can not fail to mention key works as “Citizen Kane” with a visual language that takes us from the documentary to the German expressionism of tapes as “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” through angular settings and lights and shadows, through reinforcement drawings in the style of “The Battleship Potemkin” among other works of genius.

SCHINDLER’S LIST

 

la-lista-de-schindler

 

It is impossible to make a list of this type and forget Steven Spielberg and Janusz Kaminski as a director of photography for this film. About Spielberg little one can say more that has been fundamental to conceive the film as entertainment, something with origin we have an indisputable, leader above all as the creator of iconic frames (“Psycho”, “Birds”, “with death in heels”) and as a genius when it comes to transmitting thriller and have been made with a marketing that may well help us to transmit our cosmetic customers. “Schindler’s list” about his wonderful black and white, the best that has given the history of the cinema, with a memorable scene in which there is a desaturated very symbolic selective, although in this film is a perfect nod within the plot, I hope, we all know that Yes, you do not apply it in your photos.

PERSON

 

tumblr_m1v10bvgZ51qf7r5lo8_1280

 

“Person” by Ingmar Bergman is another indispensable film, especially by one scene in particular, which allows us to create images in our minds which are only being narrated by the protagonist. There is such intensity in that fragment, together with other very attractive sequences of visual innovation, viewing is indisputable. But also occurs with other Swedish titles such as “Wild strawberries”, much inspiration for photography of weddings in some moments, or “The seventh seal”, not to mention “Fanny and Alexander” thanks to the work of Sven Nykvist as director of photography. A director raruno, this Bergman, who in his surrealism us directly linked to Luis Buñuel, creator of so attractive as “Viridiana” movies, for me one of the indispensable titles along with “Vértigo” of origin and “The executioner” of Berlanga.

MOONRISE KINGDOM

 

foto-moonrise-kingdom-21-083

 

Although many included in its “Grand Hotel Budapest” list by the complexity at the time of filming, for me there is a gem of this author that is “Moonrise Kingdom”. Especially for that kindness that clear visually, perhaps paradoxical if we consider its excessive control of the millimeter of the compositions, but where gives us planes of a technique that is fantastic as those tracking shots of the beginning or the inclusion as perfect of the subjects in the landscape, something that fascinates us, together with such care color wedding photography a must within our selected filmography is already.

EUROPE

 

katharina-hartmann-europa

 

Lars von Trier is not that it is known for its photography especially, remember that style dogma was based on an absolute negligence in terms of perfection in compositional plans, happens a bit as Terrence Malick, I hope that I do not kill in the comparison, but reminds me that use of pulse little firm, which however in Malick turns pictures beautiful in “Tree of life”.“Europe” say that it is a fascinating work in the Filmography of Danish, which is furthermore interesting when it gives you innovate creating films as unclassifiable as “Dogville”, having that ability to surprise the most enthusiastic, and that has left us very suggestive frame as “Melancholy” thanks to the photograph of Manuel Alberto clear, getting a pre-Raphaelite and literary taste with the iconic image of “Ophelia” dressed very interesting wedding.

DRIVE

 

6a00d8341bfb1653ef017eea16e63b970d

 

Not to mention the recent cult title would be a sin, as it is not named “The godfather” Although it has in its references to the sculpture with that final piety on the stairs in “The Godfather III”. I am very fan of this trilogy, primarily from the first moments in which Marlon Brando illuminates the whole scene with his actor truth, equal to I am very fan of “Drive” as soon as it has one of the most evocative soundtracks of recent times, accompanying as ring finger planes that make up excellent film invoice photo thanks to Newton Thomas Sigel. It has that flavor of lights and colours in tones reminiscent of the night scenes of “Paris, Texas” and “My Blueberry Nights” by Wong Kar Wai, and at the same time gives us worthy of study compositional settings to apply to our photography.

THE END

 

Up to here a list of ten movies that include many more, about everything that made me stay Stumpy looking photography, and even times I have strayed from the story, although most have helped me to complete it. That correspond to a short trip from the earliest times up to the most current films still having overlooked wonders of silent cinema and oriental cinema, but I think can help inspire us and make our work better every day.

Family tradition weighed, his father was a renowned physician, and social environment not taken seriously who he intended to pursue the arts professionally.

“I grew up in South Africa during apartheid. The system was violent and oppressive, most of my friends had to flee the country or were arrested,” he recalls photographer in a recent interview. Pushed by circumstances, he emigrated in 1969 to New York and newcomer began to portray the most unorthodox people with whom he was on the streets of Manhattan.

“I Do not try to take a picture, basically I continue with a”
Since he arrived in New York is crossed by chance with Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe when they were a couple and gave several usual stars of the Factory of Andy Warhol, he knew his way of approaching portrayed should not be that of a photographer all it is trying to establish a relationship, seek common language that would allow the two parties to be comfortable and not have to force the moment. Then came the charge that would change his life: he did photography for The Band in Woodstock and was published as a poster in the third studio album of the group, Stage Fright (1970).

A test of the relaxed atmosphere of their meetings is making videos ellasDos years after making that picture became creative director of United Artists Records and then took the plunge and became independent to found his own studio. The natural speed with which the race unfolded Seeff the ease with which to connect with whom he corresponds poses for.

“When you look at my contact sheets, all photos are different, because they do not try to take a picture, basically continue with a relationship,” he says. A test of the relaxed atmosphere of their meetings is in the videos that always has made many of them, some of them gathered on its website, with Ray Charles, Al Green, Alicia Keys …- as a file.
