A conversation with Charlie Engman via The Editorial Magazine

I just read the interview with Charlie Engman in The Editorial Magazine and I can see why they chose to focus on his photography of his mother. The images take on a deeper meaning for me knowing this and although they have a fashion style to them this pushes the work towards fine art portraits. In the interview Engman said that he was living with his mother when he began to photograph her and I think this emphasises how constantly photographing hones your skill. By having a muse this is has grown into a mature series of work which has led to a music video and tv commercial with Courtney Love for his mum and editorials for Engman.
