Derek Malou

GG – What is your aim as an artist? What do you want to achieve as an artist?

I really try to tell a story with my photography, for me a good image should tell something. Give you emotions and transport you in the story. Maybe a bit like a book. I want the viewer to feel the moment.


GG – What or who inspires you the most? Are there certain situations that you feel immediately the need to take the camera and shoot?

Being in very remote places inspires me a lot. I can literally take mental photographs of everything around me. I start imagining the life of people living in these wild places.


GG – Which artist of the past would you most like to meet?

Probably, Martin and Osa Johnson, they would be very controversial figures in our time but they were real adventurers.


GG – What do you wish every child were taught?

Simple kindness to everyone. We live in world where opinions are very polarized. We just need to be kind with everyone even if we disagree.
