Interview with Kim Høltermand

by Friday, April 13, 2012

Hello Kim, first of all, tell us something about your upcoming work. What are you into at the moment? 

Im in the conceptual stage of a new series which I have been wanting to make for some time. It will be set in an post-apocalyptic future where the the viewer will feel like the last person left on earth. If it will ever see the light of day I can’t answer you.

Tell us a little bit about yourself: where is home, and how long have you been a photographer? 

Home is Denmark and I started photography in early 2008 where I uploaded my first series to the Behance Network – and from there my popularity skyrocketed to where I am now.

How has your work evolved over the years from when you where beginning?

I started shooting desolate “dirty” places – with grafitti and broken glass. I have however grown in love with modern architecture and desolate minimal landscapes which I try to focus on at this time.

Who’s the first photographer that comes to your mind in a second? 

Tim Navis. The guy blew my mind the first time I saw his work and still amazes me. We are so different in style yet we share the same view on certain things in photography – and I had the privilege of making a documentary along with Tim last year. In October 2011 the two of us traveled all around Iceland with film collective Scenic and composer Deru – making the project of our dreams. The documentary will be shown to the world some time during the next few months – you can read about our project at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/scenic/outliers-vol-i-iceland and http://www.outliersiceland.com/.

 

What type of camera do you shoot with? 

Canon 7D + 50D (backup)

Which one item of equipment would you say is the most important to you?

My wideangle lenses for sure.

Do you have a favorite walk around lens…If so what Is It? 

My Tokina 11-16 mm – so sharp and crispy.

Something you’ve always wanted to do, but have yet to.

A documentary on my story in photography.

Something that annoys or frustrates you about people.

I tend to avoid people in my work with photography.

Your idea about social networks.

It is King. Without social networking I would be navel lint. I use a lot of time connecting via social networks and I think it is so important today to connect if you want your work out there – to be seen.

If you had absolute power for one day, what would you do? 

No idea.

What’s overrated today? 

Art.
