Stephanie Reuter Zakirova!

Affected by the atmosphere!

She worked as a waitress and as a book-seller, then studied media and cultural sciences.
Right now she works at the University of Düsseldorf in different research projects.

KALTBLUT:  What is your main inspiration?

Stephanie: Inspiration comes suddenly. It’s often not more than a colour or a skin tone or a ray of light which I want to capture. What counts for me is the atmosphere, I have to be affected by what I see.

KALTBLUT: How easy do you think photography is?

Stephanie: To be honest, I don’t think much about photography, so for me it’s easy because I don’t have a concept which I want to realize. But I think that photography can be very difficult, depending on what one expects from it. I really appreciate it, when people can explain what they do and why when they take pictures. Unfortunately I can’t do that.

KALTBLUT: Do you like experimenting with your photos?

Stephanie: Sometimes, yes. But usually i am too lazy to experiment a lot.

KATBLUT: Which is your favorite camera and why?

Stephanie: My favorite camera is an old cheap analog reflex camera with a 1: 1.7 yashika lens. I bought it a few years ago in a purchase and sale shop near the central station. Until now it documents my every-day-life and most of the time I carry it with me.
