Marcel Glasi: Interview


The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength


Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I reflect myself best in my photos. I would say that I'm a sensitive and empathic observer who expresses himself through his pictures. Otherwise I'm just a human being like many other. worthless...

Why do you do what you do?

I want to show powerful personalities in their physical beauty. I think that everyone has something special with rough edges, magic and an own story. Moreover I love to get through my models and to capture their souls in my pictures. Photography is my passion and sense of life. I'm kind of urged to photograph because it feels like it's my duty to do it. I enjoy to meet foreign people and to get to know each other during the shooting a lot. This includes deep conversations with my models and laughing together. Furthermore we have a common aim to create a great photo series. I could never mug someone in an impersonal way in front of a grey background. I have to be inspired by my model and I have to like her and we have to have a connection to each other. Therefore I only photograph people, who are sympathic to me right from the beginning. Every model means a lot to me, so do the photos and our common work. I get my inspiration from my models and want that the photos fascinate me. The pictures suppose to live and touch. If they're pleased by other people I'm happy. I don't want my models to show something they're not, but rather to open themself and to show their own personality.


Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

Yes I am inspired by a lot of artists and look every day works of others. If I I with my own photographs do not occupy then I deal a lot with culture, art and photographic works of different peoples

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

A big mistake was to trust people who didn't deserve to trust them. You should think twice who you let in your world and not to trust everybody immediately.


Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

In 1-2 years I want to public my first nudebook, which shows A lot of unpublished photographs of wonderful people and a lot shoots for streetwear labels. Perhaps other modelabels as well (who knows, time will show)


What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

For me it's important to be independent from other peoples opinion. Everyone lives his own life and it's important to be fine with yourself. If you don't form your life by yourself you'll be influenced and controlled by other. As known life is short, it trickles away like the sand in a hourglass. Therefore it's important to enjoy everyday from the beginning till the end. It's okay to make mistakes, to fail and to explore new things. The point is if you make mistakes to see what new views they open you and that they were worth it. Make your own image about people and don't listen to what other people tell you about them. Don't be superficial, be an independent human with own thoughts, opinions and values. Don't follow every cliche, that would be to easy to pack people in drawers, that someone is like that or like that. Never let others influence and manipulate you trough opinions or the media and "how to do it"


Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)
