JENNILEE MARIGOMEN INTERVIEW

 

Tell me about the last time you wished you had a camera with you, but didn’t.

A man was walking down West Broadway a couple weeks ago, carrying a five foot tall stuffed animal horse on his right side. From far away, it looked like he was riding it!

If you had your camera, would you have stopped the man and asked for a photo? Or would you have tried to capture the image without interfering? Is this something you even think about?

I try not to interfere or make my presence known when taking photos. I think that it’s part of my personality – I like being the observer and listener.

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.
