For UTP Issue Nº 3 Guy Aroch photographed iconic Helena Christensen. The NYC based photographer moved to NY in 1993 to attend the famed School of Visual Arts. Guy quickly became a leading photographer in fashion, beauty, and entertainment. Today his signature use of color and tones gives his work a timeless feel while staying fresh, modern and unique.
We spoke with Guy about his work and thoughts on art.
Dennis: What is Art to you?
Guy: Real art is ALL about the reason for its existence ( and/or creation)... A piece of chewed gum on a gallery wall is just that unless its a piece of gum that was chewed by John Lennon!!
When and how did your passion for photography begin?
As a kid with the need to freeze and collect moments in time!
How would you describe your current style?
My current style is all about feeling!! ( feeling it is just as important to me as seeing it.)
Who is someone you have not yet worked with but would like to?
Georgia May Jagger. I love her look.
What advice would you give the young creatives of today?
Do what u think turns u on! ...O, and stick to it!
