FABIAN MONHEIM
Photographer
l think collage comes somewhere between photography and film. As soon as you put two images together they begin to tell a story. When you put multiple images together the story gets really exciting. - Fabian Monheim

l had a model turn up who was really hung-over and impossible to photograph, so I gave her the camera and told her to take the pictures. She really enjoyed it, and they were the best shots of the whole shoot. - Fabian Monheim - The Creative Photographer : A Complete Guide to Photography by John Ingledew

People relate to snapshots as they are images that they might have taken themselves. We see through and are bored by studio shots and lifestyle photos of models with perfect teeth and perfect children, under a perfect sky. Snapshots appear more real. - Fabian Monheim - The Creative Photographer : A Complete Guide to Photography by John Ingledew

When I use a Lomo, I don't look through the viewfinder. Instead I concentrate on what's happening in front me, then when it's right I press the shutter, bang!—it gives you a real image. I believe photography is about real life. I hate being in the studio and setting things up. To get an image of real life you have to be part of it. You can't be a photographer standing there with a camera. As soon as you do that everyone starts posing or behaving in a different way. The Lomo is perfect for taking pictures without interrupting the flow of life. - Fabian Monheim - The Creative Photographer : A Complete Guide to Photography by John Ingledew

I like combining things, taking images created with the Lomo camera and the multi-lens camera that have been made on film and then using the latest technology—it lets you bake things together, overlay things and add things. - Fabian Monheim - The Creative Photographer : A Complete Guide to Photography by John Ingledew

Cross-processing gives an exciting unpredictability to the results. Sometimes an image goes totally red, or totally green. It adds another layer of chance to picture-taking. - Fabian Monheim - The Creative Photographer : A Complete Guide to Photography by John Ingledew
