Dimitri Caceaune is a young, self taught photographer from Bucharest, Romania. At only 16, he’s already built up an extraordinary portfolio. He classifies himself as an experimental photographer, as he is still trying to define his style. The first in a series of exclusive interviews, he took the time to answer a few questions regarding himself and his work.
How long have you been working as a photographer?
Although I started taking photos since I was about 13, I bought a d-slr camera in the summer of 2008.
And what drew you into the world of photography?
I was attracted by the freedom of expression, the beauty of photography.
How would you classify your work?
I usually don’t like to label my work, I just act based upon what I’m feeling.
Would you like to focus on a specific target somewhere in the future?
I would love to do something fashion-related. I’m not saying I want to go in just one direction, fashion will be just among other things.
I woldn’t like to work as a photographer though, because I enjoy it to much, so I wouldn’t like to think of it as a job.
So it’ll be more of a hobby then?
More like a passion of mine. Because I really like it, it’s sort of my way of protecting it.
I noticed you have a lot of your friends pose for you. Do you prefer working with people you know?
I usually work with friends, but I can also work with models I don’t know, I don’t have any problem with that.
I’m guessing it’s a lot easier to build a story around someone you already know on a personal level.
It’s definitely easier working with them.
What can you tell me about your creative process?
I prefer to “create” the moment rather than catch it. I have a clear idea about what I want done.
