An Interview with Photographer Arne Svenson

Neighbors_5_svenson 2

Arne Svenson is a well-known fine art photographer who is currently represented by the Julie Saul Gallery in New York. For his last exhibition, Arne experienced quite a controversy recently when he was sued by one of his subjects for his series The Neighbors, after they learned that he photographed them without their knowledge with a telephoto lens from his apartment.

The news made worldwide headlines, but Svenson won the case in August 2013 (the subject is currently appealing the ruling). Many viewed the outcome as a victory for creative artistic rights. I spoke with Arne recently about this and other aspects of his innovative viewpoints on life and art. His new exhibition Workers is due out in a few weeks.

Photographers Share About How They Overcame Their Greatest Fears

Everyone has fears, even the most successful photographers in the business. The key to overcoming those fears is to manage them rather than spending time and mental energy dwelling on them.

During Stand Out! events in Los Angeles and San Francisco, several photographer speakers were taken aside and asked about the greatest fears in their careers. The responses speak for themselves, with almost every photographer saying that one needs to ‘hustle’ and ‘take risks’ to succeed.

bm-2000

You know his work. You may have been one of the thousands of people who exposed their hidden beauty and the flaws that all humans have on their physical being to be a part of something magnificent.

His photographs of nude bodies are immediately recognizable. The same can’t be said of his subjects en masse. Humanity in all shapes, sizes and colors coalesce with each other and nature’s beauty. They form tessellations that wind through architectural wonders. His subjects become human cityscapes.
