Hans Feurer: ‘Behind Fashion There Is Always a Dream’

“I love women. I have a lot of respect for women and find them more interesting than men. The person I am drawn to is intelligent, strong and beautiful. Women are the main reason I became a fashion photographer,” says Hans Feurer.

When I read Hans’ obituary and then his statement it left me with a smile for I have always said the same to every woman I have met even briefly. I am quoting what I truly have loved. --- Amyn Nasser

Statement:


My work comprises of a spontaneous combustion of drama in cinematic tonalities I set up which brings out character tones of a split second capture perhaps somewhere sometime in my dreams or through the "sway" of East West Cultural Influences, however, regardless the woman is always empowered with her femininity - and style. It is an essence of a (the) moment, that is it, - which can be missed. I don't particularly "Pose" unless the "Pose" is a "Pose", if you get it. We are a Pose.

The work is Timeless. I do not keep any relevance to styles or trends going out as they never do. That, to me, is a misconception. Classy is knowing who you are.

The branding campaigns, advertising, editorial projects I have "shot" over the years have a clear imprint of my twist of style with a visual sensory journey. Most often with campaigns or editorials, the success of the project was large, and a sellout of the product - no matter if a luxury handbag, stocking, pantie, liptstick or bow tie, or magazine story.

Fait Accompli. It is All Glossy!

Philosophy

“Sometimes reality is too complex. Stories give it form.” ― Jean Luc Godard

"the cinema substitutes for our gaze a world that matches our desires." (opening of godard's mepris) - jean-luc godard

Every form correctly seen is beautiful. The eye doesn't see any shapes, it sees only what is differentiated through light and dark or through colors. - Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749-1832), German poet, dramatist. Sayings in Prose


“What you see depends a great deal on where you are standing. It also depends on what sort of person you are.” ― C.S. Lewis, The Magician's Nephew

“To achieve great things, two things are needed: a plan and not quite enough time.” -- Leonard Bernstein

“A work of art does not answer questions, it provokes them; and its essential meaning is in the tension between the contradictory answers.” - - Leonard Bernstein

In ancient times there was a country whose harvest came in and it was poisonous. Those who ate of it became insane.        “There is but one thing to do,” said the King. “We must eat the grain to survive, but there must be those among us who will remember that we are insane.” -- George Carlin

“Money handles most people…” — from To Catch A Thief - Alfred Hitchcock

“There is freedom waiting for you, On the breezes of the sky, And you ask "What if I fall?" Oh but my darling, What if you fly?” -- Erin Hanson.

Quotes from Diana Vreeland Movie:

…she created beauty and she created wealth

~ the eye has to travel

~ the first thing to do is arrange to be born in paris, after that, everything follows quite naturally

~ there’s only one very good life and that’s the life you know you want and you make it yourself 

~ …a sense of style, style is everything, it’s a way of life, without it you’re nobody - vogue always did stand for people’s lives, i mean, a new dress doesn’t get you anywhere, it’s the life you are living in the dress.

~ we live an artificial life in an artificial town - life is artifice

~ the strong face comes not only from a bone construction, but from the inner thinking!

~ i think any form on rhythm is absolutely essential. i mean, we are a physical people. we do count on action, mood, and wit of the body and so on to survive.

~ in those days, it was a real story. that’s how you referred to a layout. you didn’t refer to it as just a series of photographs. it was a story. everything was so precise and there was such a luxury to it. you’ve got to give people what they can’t get at home. “faction”
