"Screen Memories" by Veronica Losantos

Apr 19, 2016

Veronica is a Spanish born photographer currently living and working in Berlin, Germany. Her series “Screen Memories” is a reconstruction of the past, a way to recover distant memories that seem faded away. “For this project I dealt with this idea and tried to find out to which extent photography can help creating, altering or falsifying memory itself. In the series I narrate a personal conflict with my father’s absence. Our relationship ended when I was 12 years old, and some time ago I realised there aren’t any pictures left from our time together. My memories of him were kind of blurred, and the fact that I couldn’t revive those shared moments through images, made it easier for those recalls to vanish and be forgotten.” Following we want to present an interview we had with Veronica: am - First of all thank you for your contribution to our project. Can you please introduce yourself for us? VL - I am a Spanish photographer living in Berlin for almost 9 years now. am - What inspires your photography? VL - Personal experiences, interesting stories I hear, traveling, literature and other photographers. am - Who are your favourite photographers / artists? VL - Cristina de Middel, Nan Goldin, Wolfgang Tillmans and Cristina García Rodero. am - How would you describe your visual language? VL - It is kind of poetic and melancholic, each picture tries to tell a story although I always work in series and all the pictures need each other to work as a whole. My style is also a bit cinematic I think, I worked earlier in cinema so this might have influenced my style of taking pictures. I use mostly analog film so this also gives my pictures a special colour and texture. am - What are 5 things you could absolutely not live without? VL - Sun, air, water, the people I love and my camera. am - If you could travel and stay in a place for one year, where would you choose to go? VL - I would love to have an artist residency in New York or somewhere outside Europe, maybe somewhere where I don’t know the culture that much. am - What’s your favourite movie? VL - I couldn’t say just one because have a lot, but to name one the last movie I really loved was “Mommy” from Xavier Dolan. I also like anything from Michael Haneke or Lars von Trier. am - What projects / plans do you have for the future? Right now I’m focusing on moving my exhibition “Screen Memories” and showing it outside Berlin, and also getting to exhibit in Spain, it would be nice as I come from there. am - Thank you very much for your time and your contribution to analog magazine. * If you are around Berlin do not miss her exhibition about this series that will be up until this Sunday 24th of April 2016.
