Photographer Rita Zimmermann Interview (NSFW)

Without a challenge there is no development.

-Rita Zimmermann

Rita Zimmerman, is a Sydney based photographer, graphic designer and artist at heart. Diving into the past, she studied painting and multimedia at the Academy of Fine Arts in her hometown Warsaw while at the same time she was developing her passion for fashion. Landing jobs as a stylist at Elle Magazine Poland and then as a model booker at one of the leading Polish model agencies Model Plus, gave her a sense of direction into the world of fashion and photography. Using her acquired resources and like most photographers, she did a lot of model test shoots and has been a photographer ever since. Fast forward to the present, Rita brings us her editorial story, “Another Part of Me”, a story about a girl in Kings Cross Australia in the 6th issue of Stardust.

STARDUST: What is the underlying concept of “Another Part of Me”? What were your main sources of shooting the story?
Rita Zimmermann: I was inspired by the complexity of women… our nature is more unpredictable than men and I like complicated subjects. “Another part of me” was inspired by duality, unpredictability and the contrast of Kings Cross. It is a place where every day you can meet woman from all walks of life and I created the story around life’s choices.

S: Is Kings Cross different from daytime to nighttime?
RZ: Well there are definitely more people at night as it’s an area that is full of restaurants, bars, clubs etc.

S: What interests you as a photographer about Kings Cross and its legalization on prostitution?
RZ: The contrast and something risqué about places like this… I grew up in Europe and almost every city including Amsterdam’s red light district or Paris’ Pigalle has their version of Kings Cross. Sydney’s Kings Cross separates two of the most luxurious places to live in Sydney—Potts Point and Darlinghurst. Kings Cross is full of 24-hour fast food restaurants, fast love establishments, the homeless and the many prostitutes who go unnoticed to the everyday person. The girls are just there and you are passing by them on your way to work or to do your daily groceries. Yes prostitution is legalised in all Australia. Kings Cross is unique to Sydney, however prostitution is legalized throughout Australia.

S: How was working with Monica?
RZ: Monica was great. It wasn’t one of the easiest shoots. We needed to focus and keep an eye on the clock, plus shooting topless in public is always a challenge for a model.

S: How did you go about picking your team? Have you worked with them before?
RZ: It wasn’t the first time working with Meg, stylist and owner of babylikestopony or hair stylist Marcel as we did a couple editorials together in the past. However, it was my first collaboration with Ania, a young but talented Australian make up artist, and Liz from Love Story who provided the furs and is one of the most influential vintage collectors.

S: Looking at your portfolio, you seem like you specialize in shooting in black and white. What is your reasoning behind it?
RZ: I wouldn’t use word specialize, but rather that I prefer black and white. Black and white is more dramatic and beautiful in a way that you need to imagine what the real colours can be. Different people can have different imaginations. With colour it’s easier to make the picture more attractive; black & white is more of a challenge.

S: So you like to be challenged?
RZ: Of course I do. Without a challenge there is no development; being an artist we need to constantly be developing and progressing.

S: What separates you from others in your field?
RZ: My secret is to “fall in love” with the person you’re photographing.

S: What are certain things that you feel like you need to work on?
RZ: There are always many …as I am perfectionist!

S: What makes a good image to you?
RZ: A good image starts with team work—agreeing on the idea and concept. Then it’s between model and myself. I usually begin with what model wants to give me rather than pushing towards my expectations. It’s an evolution together. The right moment (and at the same time a perfect image) is when the model feels comfortable enough to just have a fun.

S: As artists, we are constantly growing and learning everyday. What advice do you have for beginners.
RZ: Find what you love and than just photograph… if somebody doesn’t like your work …do more, shoot more. Criticism should be viewed as a positive.

S: What is your life motto?
RZ: Do not feel fear

S: Any last words/thoughts?
RZ: Follow me into the rabbit hole; my new exciting project with leading polish interior designer Mariola Tomczak (concept store, design studio and art gallery) opening 10 October in Warsaw but we will be working international as well! Follow us on facebook (Rabbithole art room) soon will launch rabbit hole art room.
