Brigitte Lacombe: Shadowing Hollywood
The French Photographer Captures On-Set Moments with Joaquin Phoenix and Marion Cotillard


Palme d’Or-nominated director James Gray invited Tinseltown’s favorite photographer Brigitte Lacombe to document the atmospheric off-camera moments of some Hollywood heavyweights for his 1920s-set epic The Immigrant. The plot sees Polish native Ewa (Marion Cotillard) lured by an illicit New Yorker (Joaquin Phoenix) who forces her into prostitution, before being rescued by his worldly magician cousin, Orlando (Jeremy Renner). Lacombe, who recently worked on the set of Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street and Spike Jonze’s Her, prefers to remain in the background, capturing the actors in the intensity of a fleeting exchange. The NOWNESS regular’s first break came at the 1975 Cannes Festival when she met Dustin Hoffman and became the set photographer for All the President’s Men. She has since captured some of the greatest actors in cinema—from Meryl Streep to Al Pacino, Jack Nicholson and Viggo Mortensen—but this latest film marks her first meeting with French beauty Marion Cotillard. Ahead of the film’s release next month, Lacombe talks meeting her subjects halfway.  What was the most interesting thing about working on this particular set? Brigitte Lacombe: I have always wanted to photograph Marion Cotillard because she’s quite fascinating. I don’t know her at all but she’s good in every single movie I’ve seen. I always find her absolutely true emotionally—there is never a false note. I also photographed Joaquin Phoenix in a completely different mood than on the set of Spike Jonze’s Her, it was like meeting a different person. He’s really interested in the work and is incredibly intense and focused. That’s what great actors are like. You like to shoot your portraits with very few props, artificial lights or set-ups. How does that change when you are shooting film characters? BL: I always keep a minimum of people around. The ideal thing is to be by myself with the assistant. That’s the best way for me to make a portrait. The subjects relate to one person, not a group. When working on a film you want to do something that is close to the film. You have to respect the film as much as possible. In this case I lit it in a similar fashion to the scenes they were in. I wanted to make very classic portraits with one source of light—very stark, simple.  You are known for the intensity of your portraits. How does the photographic portrait capture the subject?BL: What I do is very far from concepts and ideas. I want to work in collaboration with the person I photograph, more than give my take on them. I want the person to meet me halfway. I don’t want to steal anything; I want a true classic portrait with the person wanting to be there. It’s about being 100% present and that I’m able to do—it’s easier to achieve if you’re not speaking.

Depeche Mode - World in my Eyes. Lyrics by Martin L. Gore

My sweet honey-bunnies,

I’m on holidays during the next days. I’m at my parents house. A lot of good food, a lot of Mama-Hugs and a lot of good conversations with her, my dad and some of my old schoolfriends. So I will not be here very often. But don’t cry. ;) I’ll be back!

Happy Holidays!

wednesdaydreams:

At every step, every gust of wind, I’d like to be able to say ‘Now..’, no longer ‘forever’ and ‘for eternity’. To take the empty seat at a card game and be greeted by others, even if just with a nod. It would be nice to come home after a long day and feed the cat like Philip Marlowe, or to have a fever, or get your fingers black by the newspaper. To be excited not just by the mind, but by a meal, the curve of a neck. To lie! Through one’s teeth! To feel your bones as you walk along. For once just to guess instead of always knowing…

The Renner Obsession

This is very personal. If you don’t want to read it you may now return to your regularly scheduled dashboard scrolling.

(Sorry for my shitty english, but I just had to write it down)

I met Jeremy Renner for the first time in August 2013, when I saw Mission Impossible. From this day on, something weird happened to me. I really became obsessed by this man. I’ve never had those kind of feelings before. Over the years there was some Fan-Love for Johnny Depp, Dave Gahan, James Badge Dale and some others. But it was this usual Fan-Love. Nothing special. Quite normal.

Jeremy changed it. I wanted to know everything about him. I wanted to have every picture of him that is on the internet. I wanted to see every video on YouTube. I wanted to read everything about him. I became something like a Stalker. I couldn’t sleep anymore, I couldn’t eat anymore. Throughout the last 8 months I’ve lost nearly 30 Kilograms.  I could not do my job anymore in a normal way. (I quit my job a few weeks ago, but for other reasons).

In January, I’ve realized, that my obsession wasn’t healthy anymore. And I’ve tried to fight against it. But it got worse. Luckily, there is a woman, I call her my big sister, who helps me so much. We have written many emails.She showed and teached, that my obsession was not that worse, as I thought it was.

I don’t know how to describe the feelings that I have for Jeremy. Do I love him? No, love is the wrong word. Do I like him? Oh yes, I like him. As a person and as an actor. He’s very smart. I love to read good Interviews with him, I love to watch his Interviews on YouTube and I love to read his quotes. He can say so much in less words. And do I have to mention that he’s beautiful? I describe my feelings for him like this: It is in the middle of “I love him” and “I like him”. Does that make sense? For me, it does.

Last week, I’ve realized, that I’ve stopped fighting against my obsession. a while ago. And since then, I feel much better.

Actually, I can say, I’m glad Jeremy came into my life. He makes me happy, he makes me laugh. And isn’t that something we all want to have? Someone/Something who/that makes us happy? And the most important thing for me is - He inspired me to change my life. I’m not kidding!

I was afraid of life, I was afraid of me, I was afraid of everything in this world. He teached me, not to be afraid anymore. Because he is so brave. When I think of the things that he has reached during the last 20 years - Chapeau, Jeremy! I’m proud to know you, as good as I can. I’m proud to be a part of the best fandom on tumblr. That’s your fault, Renner!

I’m happy now.

I can laugh about myself and about my obsession now. And during the last weeks and months I’ve found a lot of other things that makes me happy, that makes me laugh. Simple things. Something like: It was such a wonderful day, lot of sun, very warm.

I have goals in life again. And if I will soon have achieved one of these goals, I’ll write a letter to Jeremy and tell him that he was my inspiration. I don’t care, if he will ever read it or not.

That’s what I’ve learned during the last months:

Be fine with your feelings. Don’t fight them. It’s okay. I think it’s better to have those feelings than to have no feelings. Don’t be a Zombie. And find someone with whom you can talk about these feelings. Someone who understands you. And find somthing else that makes you happy.

I can say, I’m happy that I was obsessed, because I’ve learned so much about me. But I’m even happier that I am no longer obsessed.

I feel alive again. I feel free.

A lot of love, hugs and kisses for my big sister,

for H.A.,

for M.W. <-You are so special, you mean the world to me.

And for some people here on tumblr. Some of you do not even know how much they helped me. Without you I could not have done.

Thanks for reading.
