Darum geht es in dieser Folge

Another topic of our conversation is Dyanne’s photo tour to Yellowknife which is considered to be the capital of Northern Lights in Canada.

 

Although Dyanne has studied Art History at the University of Ottawa and has taken a few technical courses in photography, she is basically self-taught. Here’s an extensive guide on finding your inner photographer and how to make the most of your camera.

 

Dyanne has a keen interest in the cultural diversity of Canada as it is expressed in the built environment, nature and life itself.

 

She prefers images that convey the mood, narrative and beauty of a person, place or event.

 

In 2014, Dyanne was invited by Fuji to be an official Fuji X-Photographer.

Q&A with Dyanne Wilson

I have two favourite quotes:

„Work is love made visible.“

Kahlil Gibran

And

„We are making photographs to understand what our lives mean to us.“

Ralph Hattersly

„Fifteen Dogs“* by Andre Alexis. I loved this book because it is a story about 15 dogs who received the gift of human consciousness from two gods on a bet. The bet was that dogs would be even more unhappy than humans are if they were given human consciousness. It was my favourite read because I love dogs of course and I like to think about these things i.e. what constitutes a good life and how one should achieve happiness and meaning in life. Also, one of the key canine protagonists Majnoun reminds me  of my 10 year old Golden Doodle named Saydee.

Yousuf Karsh. As you know I have already mentioned how much I like the work of Annie Leibowitz however, I thought I should also mention a Canadian master portrait photographer who happens to be from my home town in Ottawa, Canada. His portrait of Winston Churchill is masterful. I’ve seen an original print of it in the Speakers Chamber in the House of Commons and it is arresting. He had an uncanny ability to know and connect with his subjects in way that is congruent with their story. He has photographed some of the great personalities of the 20th century: Queen Elizabeth, Einstein, Bill Clinton, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Picasso and others.

David Burdeny. I love his colourful medium format aerial work.  He makes gorgeous very large prints.

I love my Peak Design Slide strap*. It enables me to switch cameras effortlessly as well as distribute the weight around my shoulders.

The new rendition of Paul Simon’s classic „The Sound of Silence“* by American rock band „Disturbed“. He sings it with such passion and the song’s lyrics really resonate with me. Actually it might be a good theme song for my favourite picture.
