“I’m sure for some people saying they’re bisexual feels less scary than making a statement that they’re gay,” Paquin tells Zooey magazine in a new interview. “For me, it’s not really an issue because I’m someone who believes being bisexual is actually a thing. It’s not made up. It’s not a lack of decision. It’s not being greedy or numerous other ignorant things I’ve heard at this point. For a bisexual, it’s not about gender. That’s not the deciding factor for who they’re attracted to.” (via Anna Paquin defends bisexual label despite being married, pregnant - NYPOST.com)
Who do you consider to be an influence on your work as a photographer?
Ellen von Unwerth: I’m a big fan of Helmut Newton, I like the strength and the sexiness of his pictures and also the kind of storytelling - there’s always something risqué about them and that’s what I always love in my own photography - to tell a little story. When it looks like there’s something happening before and after. And my other big influence is Jacques Henri Lartigue - he’s a French photographer from the twenties. It was more reportage style, like photographs of elegant women wearing these amazing clothes with their funny dogs with lots of movement, and they’re very, very charming pictures. So I kind of looked at both of them. You know they’re very opposite but I like the combination of both of them. And then, you know, I love movies. I love like old Italian cinema old, French movies, Hollywood movies,Marilyn Monroe, you know, like Billy Wilder, all these things influenced me a lot.
