Introducing Irene Moray!
Irene worked as the official XConfessions photographer for many of my shoots, plus her photographs illustrate some of the confessions on XConfessions.com! Irene is active between Berlin and Barcelona, a young photographer who shows a transparent view on human fragility; thus featuring a lot of skin and flesh. I love her work, and a stumbled across this interview we did with her a while ago! It’s vitally important to me that I support other women, especially young women, and Irene has taken some of the most incredibly photographs for my films.
What inspires you the most, artistically and sexually?
I think what inspires me the most when I want to be creative is listening to music. I also love cinema. Actually that’s something I want to achieve with my photography, some sort of cinematic feel in which you can predict a movement, or have a sense the continuity of what happened just before the image or what’s about to happen.
Sexually I think nothing inspires me more than being in love. It’s such a cliché but it’s still true for me.
Did you ever find a good visual representation of an orgasm? If so, can you share it with us?
I know it’s really abstract but orgasms are abstract too, haha.
How did erotica become a subject to your work?
Erotica has always been somehow present in my work. I usually photograph people I love: friends, family, partners. I’m interested in portraying their vulnerability at the same time as their strength. Nudity is something natural for me and for most of the people around me. When I take explicit sexual images it’s not that different from photographing wild nature or catching someone asleep or crying, honestly. It’s just another part of my life.
