MEEK ZUIDER­WYK, PHO­TOG­RA­PHER

Fashion Quarterly - - Inside -

Does hav­ing a fash­ion de­sign de­gree help you, or change the way you shoot fash­ion? Yes I think it does; know­ing about fab­rics and tex­tures and the way they look un­der light helps. I also look at gar­ments and ap­pre­ci­ate how much work has gone into de­sign­ing and mak­ing them. What is on your read­ing list right now? I have this book called The Andy Warhol

Diaries that lies around the house. You can open it at any page and get an in­cred­i­ble in­sight into Warhol’s mind and his crazy celebrity friends and par­ties. Next week­end

get­away? For win­ter it would have to be around Na­tional Park, for the trout fish­ing, lodges and big fire­places. Last film you saw? I just watched a movie by Ni­co­las Wind­ing Refn, one of my favourite direc­tors, called Val­halla Ris­ing. It’s so good. Mads Mikkelsen is amaz­ing - he doesn’t say one word in the en­tire movie. Dream din­ner party quest? Tay­lor Swift, my daugh­ter would freak. Strangest thing in your car? Me. Best piece of ad­vice you have been

given? If you’re of­fered an op­por­tu­nity to do some­thing that seems re­ally dif­fi­cult and is a chal­lenge, never turn it down. Say yes, and fig­ure out how to do it. The re­wards for th­ese things are al­ways the best.
