Friday, January 4, 2013 Nasty Gals In The Wild: Kava Gorna

Kava Gorna

Sensuality can get real creepy real quick, but photographer Kava Gorna knows how to keep it beautiful, finding just the right bit of bizarre for balance. She’s previously worked for Voguei-DNylonRolling Stone and a bunch of others you’ve definitely heard about… and when she shot this fierce series for us with El Grace, she said they were aiming to take advantage of being in New York City at night in Chinatown. “Which can be a little mysterious and strange,” Kava tells us. While on Bayard Street in front of a restaurant, she says, everyone who was eating dinner got really amped about the shoot “and tried to take photos with their phones through the window. It was really funny because shoots happen in New York City all the time, and I rarely see New Yorkers being so excited.” Well, after checking out these photos, you’ll probably understand what had them so riled up…

Styling by Meaghan Mullaney, hair & makeup by John Mckay @defacto

What was it like working with El Grace?

It was really great to meet her… she has a very inquisitive and fearless nature. Shooting with her seemed like a real collaboration, as well as with the stylist Meaghan, and Jonnie, who did the hair and makeup. We all seemed to be on the same page during the shoot and that’s always fun.

 What types of situations and people do you like to shoot in general?

I love shooting various subjects and people, on location, from personalities and portraits to fashion stories. I think I am always interested in seeking out something hidden and secret from my subjects though, while making them feel really comfortable doing it.

How would you describe your artistic style?

Intimate and honest.

How would you describe your personal style? Does it change when you’re going out?

I like to keep it pretty casual. Working as a photographer I often find that I am more interested in expressing myself through my photography, so my personal style is pretty minimal. I’m a devoted jeans and t-shirt girl, usually a vintage t-shirt and overpriced jeans. I only like wearing heels, ever, even when I shoot.

Music obsessions right now?

I get pretty obsessed with music—for the past month I have been listening to Jessie Ware’s “Wildest Moments,” Parquet Courts’ “Stoned and Starving,” Austra’s “Beat and the Pulse” (Still Going Remix), Kendrick Lamar’s “Backseat Freestyle,” Major Lazer’s “Get Free” (feat. Amber of Dirty Projectors) and I also have been listening to Dazing pretty nonstop in the last month.

 What are you working on now? What’s next?

I’m about to take off for Jamaica for a little fashion shoot that I’m very excited about, and then I have a project in Miami that I think will be really amazing. Possibly I’ll go to LA before the end of the month. I love traveling and shooting in warm locations, and come winter it’s always nice to get out of New York.

Friday, January 4, 2013 Film: Harmony Korine

Screen Shot 2013-01-04 at 12.33.51 PM

Happy Birthday to filmmaker Harmony Korine, the rebellious eccentric who continually delivers healthy doses of curious and surreal to the cinema, from the most recent Fourth Dimension and forthcoming Spring Breakers to iconic film Gummo. He’s not afraid to be disturbing by heading pretty far out there … yet he still somehow keeps it relatable, commenting on the human condition from the sideways squint of an intensely strange individual. Happy birthday to one of our favorite directors!
