沙特阿拉伯公主:摄影师是不能后天培养的
发表于:2010-11-16 13:50:32

Steven: Do you think someone can be trained to be a good photographer?
Reem: No. A good photographer is born that way and training helps to perfect the original talent but if he/she doesn’t have any talent so any amount of training wouldn’t help.

Steven: What kind of education did you receive in Paris? Any cultural shock to you there? Anything strongly conflicting to the education you received in Saudi Arabia?
Reem: I had no cultural shock since I had been going to Paris since I was a very young child and had been very used to it. I studied for only a year and half and of course there was a difference from my education in Saudi Arabia. In Saudi Arabia I studied in a conventional school but in Paris I only studied photography.

Steven: You visited Saudi Arabia Pavilion recently, what’s the impression on the pavilion? What would you love to showcase in the pavilion for the visitors most?
Reem: I liked the Saudi Pavilion very much and was happy to see the beautiful architecture and art of the pavilion. I think the best thing to showcase for the visitors was the film in the big screen and the art gallery.

Steven: What is the reason that you have such a great interest in Chinese culture?
Reem: I like Chinese art and culture very much and I find it has a lot in common with Arab and Islamic art.

Steven: What did you intend to find out in China previously?
Reem: When I visit a place or a country for the first time I try not to have previous ideas about it and never to form an opinion about it before I visit. I always try to let the place or country tell me about itself with its own words.

Steven: We haven’t found any of your photos about modernisation in China. Is it that you care more about the people?
Reem: Yes. I care more about the people that make a country and also when I look at a country I try to show and see what the soul of the country is and that is really something that goes beyond urban changes. There is always a part of a country that is eternal and doesn’t change with time.

Steven: It is hard to live on photography. I don’t mean to be offensive. Just wondering where your finance comes from?
Reem: It is true I don’t live from my photography I have other means to live on.

Steven: Why do you like black-and-white photos more? Is it because you may presume that the black-and-white photos can be kept longer? Were they shot with digital cameras or film cameras?
Reem: Since my photography is more about the soul and the spiritual side of life B&W film gives me the ability to translate this philosophy to the audience. B&W because it goes against what we see in the natural world it forces the viewer to disconnect from Reality and go deeper into the supra-reality. I use mostly 120mm film.

Steven: Had anybody found out that you’re the princess after you took photos of them?
Reem: Nobody ever knows I’m a princess when I photograph. 

Steven: Do you usually do some planning about what you want to take photos of before you go out, or you get the photos randomly?
Reem: I never plan before I go out to photographing I just move randomly.

Steven: Could you tell us some of your daily responsibilities as a princess?
Reem: Being a Princess in Saudi Arabia is not like in Europe we are more a tribe than a family and in us there are all levels of the society, from rich to poor, professional to housewives teachers doctors and of course the King and some ministers and government officials. As a princess I have no power but we have more of a moral responsibility as guides to the society and we also have an obligation to serve our country and its people.

Steven: For you, what is life all about?
Reem: Life for me is what it should be for every Muslim to do the best to serve humanity and live a clean and honorable life.

Steven: Besides photography, what do you do in your life?
Reem: Oh, I Own the only photography only gallery in the Arab world called The Empty Quarter. You can check it out at www.theemptyquarter.com also I’m a Co. Owner of the Cube Arts company which organized the Nabatt exhibition in the Duloun Museum in Shanghai. Also I’m a member in several organizations that deal with cultural exchange and dialogue in Saudi Arabia and internationally.

Steven: What is your next destination?
Reem: The world.
