INTERVIEW // Fred Mortagne Part Two


Here is the second part of our interview with renowned skateboarding filmmaker and cameraman, Fred Mortagne (a.k.a. FrenchFred). He shares more images taken with the Leica M Monochrom and his career as a photographer. Read part one here.

Q: These pictures were taken with a Leica Monochrom. What are your impressions of this camera?

A: The quality of this camera is truly impressive and that motivated me to take a lot more photos than I usually do. At the moment, wherever I go, I’ve always got this camera on me, and my camcorder. Initially, I was pretty anti-digital because I feel it undermines the notion of the instant. So I tried to continue working with film as much as possible. But the Monochrom has somewhat reduced the divide between them.
