Could you give us a little background on yourself?
I grew up in Hong Kong and London. My parents are Swiss and Australian.
I have red hair! That’s always been high up on the list of “who is Georgi”. I should probably mention that redheads are inherently a tad weird and “outside the norm.” Being a photographer has an outsider quality to it sometimes, so I think I was naturally attracted to it.
I started taking pictures and working in the darkroom when I was twelve and have been using photography as “my second voice” ever since. Sometimes it’s simply my only voice ;)
You create beautiful work. What excited you about what you make?
At my New York-based event photography studio, Maggie Marguerite, what excites me most is how we photograph some of the most emotional, intimate and special moments of a person’s life. It’s a powerful experience to photograph two people in love the day they’re married, or to capture a young man or woman celebrating their bar or bat mitzvah, or to create portraits of a family.
You, the photographer, are very energised, and often profoundly moved, and your work reflects that. I suppose in a sense, and I’m just realizing this as I write, what we are photographing is love. And that’s about as exciting as it gets!
How did you come to meet Meural?
My brilliant friend Siml! As soon as I heard about it I knew it was a phenomenal product.
What is Meural to you?
Photography is an art form but it’s also a technology, since its beginnings in the early 1820s we’ve been developing better, and more innovative ways to “capture the light” and to exhibit what we’ve created. The age of digital photography has revolutionised the way we take pictures, and the Meural digital frame is the next step in showcasing images.
What’s next for you?
I’m off to Israel today to shoot a wedding - I’m pretty excited!
