Jaroslaw Jarema: The human being
"Every one of us, who tries to create something should find his own way."
Tell us about yourself.
I’m 42 and I’m from Poland.
When and how did the film journey begin for you?
It started about 20 years ago. I’m still on this journey, in fact I only shoot film.
What Could we always find in your gear bag?
Pack of cigarettes :) - I choose the camera or cameras for each shooting, specifically. When I’m on trip I always have my Mamiya 6 with me – it’s very handy camera :).
Do your photos reveal your feelings?
Of course – my feelings, my point of view, mostly they are an effect of what I’m creating in my mind.
Who are your subjects?
I photography the human being – but I try to treat the man in an universal way, without identity.
What inspires you most?
Human being – what we can create: paintings, sculptures, poetry, architecture and pop culture as well.
Do you have any advice for film photographers out there?
I’m not to good at giving advice. Every one of us, who tries to create something should find his own way. We should extract inspirations from this reach treasure, our culture, I mean visual arts like painting, photography etc but we’re honest only when we don’t copy or duplicate, but photograph in our own, unique way.
