Shooting Marc Newson
It was a short notice call. A good friend of mine called me and asked if I was available for a reportage. They would make Marc Newson work on one of their products. He would be coming to their factory the day after tomorrow. If I could be there to document and photograph the day with Marc. You believe….sure I would make time and be available! I loved this guy and his work!. His chaise longue it just amazing and being sold for nearly 1 Mio $ is just crazy. Is this still design or is it art? Anyways. I was over excited about this job. Even if there would not be much time for talking. He was on a business trip and this wasn’t about me or Superflu.eu. I was there to document.
He was really cool though. He flew in on a private plane from London, wearing sneakers, jeans and an old sweatshirt. Just a cool guy like you and me, no attitude and not the superstar you might imagine. And easy to work with, too. Whenever I needed him to do something again because i missed the shot he was cool about it.
This day went by like a day on the beach. Fun, easy, some nice talking and a nice chat over lunch. It felt more like being with friends than with the superstar of contemporary design and clients.
Unfortunately the images are still confidential and I am not allowed to say the client’s name either….. Mac Newson’s new creation will be out in about a year or something like this…..I will be able to show you images then.
Take some time and browse about all the stuff he puts his mind and his hands on. He touches about pretty much everthing, boats, cars, bottles, watches, planes, furnitures and so on….what a talent!
