GARRY TRINH INTERVIEW
Is it true that Australians are to blame for “Uggs”?
Is it’s true and proud of them we are.
In your humble opinion, what is the worst movie of all time?
I haven’t kept a list of movies I hate. I tend to see the good in all things. However, I felt physically nauseous while watching Cloverfield on the big screen and really really needed to leave the cinema. Those handycam shots made me feel like I was on a two hour roller coaster. Took a day to recover from the experience.
I was immediately drawn to the humour in your work, especially in your “snaps”. Do people ever laugh out loud when they encounter your work in a gallery setting?
That would be a great reaction if people laughed out loud. The people that look at my work often have a bewildered expression on their face. I don’t think they take the time to really LOOK. I feel the need to explain the photograph to them. I can not decided if my humour is just personal or universal.
The incredible Monster Children Photo Issue just landed on my doorstep!!! I have been following this Australia-based magazine (and gallery) for a long time now, and they had a big influence on the way I designed Booooooom. If I had my own magazine, this issue would make me want to put C4 in my trunk and drive through the front window of my warehouse. Many magazines out there need to take notes or give up. This it how it should be done!
