Photography, PR and parenting are all about putting others in the limelight. It’s about time our multi-talented Mia Morris got some attention.
That’s what the free indieBerlin Closing Party will be all about: a huge celebration of the nHow exhibition’s three featured photographers. Mia’s the first to answer our questions:
I did actually get into burlesque once…
What’s the best memory that these photos capture for you?
If I had to gather them to one memory I’d say it’s the vibe and feel of going out in the evening to see a band. The energy of the musicians, the vibing with the audience, the hanging out and enjoying music in a relaxed way. And I have the good fortune to capture a bit of it on camera. Bliss.
You shoot burlesque as well as music. Have you ever wished you were the other side of the camera, up on stage?
I did actually get into burlesque because I joined one of Lady Lou’s Burlesque classes. The people and the art of burlesque immediately won my heart and I did toy with the idea of going on stage. But then I’m rather a behind the scenes person.
To capture a bit of it on camera, bliss…
Concert photography doesn’t pay well. Why do you keep doing it?
Funny you should say that… Yeah, I don’t think I’d be able to live off it. But I enjoy photographing and I enjoy having those memories of the gigs too. Also I’m fond of showing what’s going on in Berlin in so many different ways.
