Nicole Feenstra on Broken Hearts Division: "One of the things about broken hearts is that everybody's had one"
She [Officer Mack] is definitely inspired by Inspector Clouseau [The Pink Panther]. He’s sort of a bumbling detective. I’ve always liked people, and especially characters, who are very convinced of things and sort of charge ahead without a lot of knowledge. There’s an adage that’s called “Ready, Fire, Aim”. Sometimes you just sort of go for it, and I think this character is somebody who believes passionately in righting wrongs that she sees perpetrated on people.
Celebs on Sandwiches Artist Jeff McCarthy
"Our culture has a pretty serious fascination with celebrity and food, so I thought it would be fun to merge the two together in a way that’s funny and lighthearted. There’s obviously an absurdity and a randomness to the idea, but I think, in a way, that’s what people seem to respond to."
THE MILLIONAIRES' UNIT Filmmakers Darroch Greer and Ron King
"The little bit of news that was coming out about the war overseas was that this was the biggest event of mankind. In the history of the world. And they wanted to play a part, and they wanted to fly. It was a young person’s energetic dream of adventure, and challenge, and glory. "
National Geographic Photographer Vincent Musi
“I just never thought that was possible, you know, to make that kind of connection with these animals. So that’s kind of where I started with it. I felt like if I could get to that place, figure out what the animal was about, then I might be able to make a better photograph of it.”
TLC'S HEAR ME, LOVE ME, SEE ME Host Christine Lakin
“I mean, these are real people with real wants, and I wouldn’t say they’re desperate, but they’re hopeful. I feel like when the other stuff doesn’t work, you know, you should start throwing caution to the wind. I think that’s really brave, especially in this case.”
NOSTALGIA Filmmaker Mark Pellington
“There’s bitter, which is decidedly distasteful, right? And there’s sweet. Bittersweet is that combination. In the film, all these things come from a girl who’s 19 years old, and it is that—bittersweet, like a pain you desire. It’s a contradiction. It’s the past, and it’s probably not good for me, but I like it. I feel comfortable in it. It’s like an ailment that you enjoy.”
"Hungry Girl" Lisa Lillien
"The thing about ‘not having time’… I feel like you can always make excuses about not having time for something. But, you guys, you wake up every day, you have time to brush your teeth. You have time to do that. So you have to have time to think about your eating if it’s important to you."
Disability Is Not Inability: ANGIE AND RUBY
"When Ruby makes a new friend, my first instinct is to make sure they want to be her friend for the right reasons. Ruby has always been quite popular at school (even more so now with her social media presence), so it’s my job to make sure her friends are true and not just hanging out with her for attention."
FATHER FIGURES Actor Zachary Haven
"You learn so much from [actors] just based on what they do and how they act. You know, sometimes I look at the other actors’ scripts just to see what they do with them. And it’s like, there are multiple ways of doing the scenes … One of the things I thought was [interesting] was when I looked at Ed Helms’ script, who was my father in one of the movies I filmed, he had a script that was just filled with notes, and that was really cool to see."
Underwater Wildlife Photographer Christian Vizl: 'Being in their presence is first, images come second'
"The higher purpose of my images is to be a voice of the ocean and for the ocean, hoping that people can get a glimpse of who they really are, beautiful, sentient individuals, with feelings and different personalities, with complex behaviors and interesting lives that science is only starting to understand."
Toy Photographer Mitchel Wu: "You need to create the emotion and motion"
"You can have different characters interacting with one another. You can create motion with, like you said, the dirt flying around or splashes of water. You create situations which can elicit an emotion out of the viewer. So that’s more challenging than shooting moving people, for sure. But again, that’s one of the things that really drew me to the medium; the challenge of bringing those things out of something that’s inanimate."
The World of Photomicrography, As Told By Michael Peres and Nathan Renfro
"I get to discover new alien worlds filled with some of the most amazing examples of natural beauty. Having a camera on my microscope just lets me bring others along the journey....and I get to do this without having to get on a plane, drive hours in a car, hike lots of miles. I just get to sit in my office and go on an expedition whenever I want, for as long as I want."
Rachel Molina on "Seen But Not Heard", Her Look Into The Transition from Childhood to Adolescence
"If someone had asked me those questions [at that age], I don’t know if I would have answered with such maturity. So I think what I learned from them is kind of lots of things. I think primarily, I learnt that their hope for how it was going to be for them tended to override any worries." Photographer RACHEL MOLINA
“I would like to be a singer and dancer when I’m older. I would also like to learn a new language. I’m a bit nervous and I think I will be a bit confused because on my first day. My Mum will have to leave me there and I will have to get to know the school and all the teachers.” MIAH H, YEAR 6
Drone Photographer Dirk Dallas: "We really are small dots in the grand scheme of things"
"What’s really interesting about shooting from the air is that it truly is humbling for me. As soon as I take that drone up, even just 100 feet, everything looks so small. You can barely see me. I’m now a speck. It’s like this Godlike view of the world, and I’m like, Wow. We really are small dots in the grand scheme of things, right?"
Emilee McGovern on Photographing Stoneman Douglas Rallies: "I wanted something even more raw"
"When you make things personal, it makes people want to continue the journey alongside you. It gives them a perspective different from their own, and real social change cannot happen unless we are listening to people other than ourselves."
"It was very risky": Seph Lawless on His Viral Photos of Abandonment
"We are a great country—I love my country to death, I really do. But hiding in the shadows is crumbling areas of my country that I want people to not forget about, too. I want people to talk about these areas as well, not just focus on the good ... I thought it was my responsibility to show a more accurate depiction of America, and show the other side, too. Just like the other side of Disney World, the Happiest Place on Earth? I want to show you the place that almost looks like the Unhappiest Place on Earth."
"SEDUCED BY THE LENS"
"Seduced by the Lens" is our new series of interviews for Musée Magazine. The series features interviews with established figures in entertainment who have found another passion in photography.
SEDUCED BY THE LENS: TABITHA SOREN
"I thought it was going to be more portrait-driven than it ended up, but that’s what made me think, Oh, I have this group of guys, I have access to this group of guys who all started out doing the exact same thing at the exact same time in their lives. And professional sports is so—the lifespan, the career span is so short—that I could, without commiting for my entire life, maybe do the beginning, middle and end of something. So in my mind, Rineke Dijkstra was as important as Billy Beane."
SEDUCED BY THE LENS: BRYAN ADAMS
"I suppose the moment I bought a Rolleiflex camera things really changed. That camera had something going on. Depth of field was more exciting; the format of the negs was more interesting, even the out of focus shots were cool. Then I started working with real printers like Mike Spry at Downtown darkroom and Brian Dowling at BDI in London. They turned my crappy negatives into boxes of exquisite prints. It was like Christmas."
“Because we’ve all experienced bad cyberbullying and hate, we tried to figure out a way to teach people how to avoid it, how to step away from it, how to make it better … We all just kind of wanted to come together and, oh, this sounds so cheesy, but make a difference.”
When Jacob Frey first thought about attending Filmakademie, a highly-respected film school in his home country of Germany, he was an underdog.
