Interview with Fine Art Landscape photographer Philippe Mougin

Interview with Fine Art Landscape photographer Philippe Mougin


How and when did you become interested in photography?

A long time ago i discovered a photographic book from the great Jean-Loup Sieff… it was a revelation for me, not for his nude but for his black and white landscapes in Normandy, Scotland… so Dark and so Timeless….

Is there any artist/photographer who inspired your art?

I’m really fascinating also for the work of Raymond Meeks, Masao Yamamoto, Micheal Kenna, and Todd Hido..

Why do you work in black and white rather than color?

Maybe I’m always looking for some mysterious places, i have to be fascinating by a place… and Black and white photography is how i see those places…

How much preparation do you put into taking a photograph/series of photographs?

I work with analogue and digital… one is an old Hasselblad and with Digital Camera… for me it s no important… the result is the same… but post production is very long for a picture, it can takes few weeks… also I process the films at home, then I scan them… Now I’m working on palladium print from digital negative…

Where is your photography going? What projects would you like to accomplish?

My projects is to be more comfortable with Palladium/platinum printing, which is the best quality print in photography process…
