All the other important fashion parent groups wanted to buy the Margiela label. I want someone like you. Even with Diesel, the history and archive of the brand is crucial. Many brands can just act as a collection to sell season by season, but some brands, they are so strong, they have an identity. A move many considered as risky after John Galliano was very publicly ousted from Dior.
Actually, Martin is the one that convinced me to hire John. In the end, you have to give a chance to someone that made a mistake because everyone makes mistakes! I think Margiela was the perfect partner for John and his restart in fashion. But people did think I was crazy.
I like to take risks so when I did something crazy or something different, they treated me like I was a little bit stupid, you know? We have gained respect from the world of fashion. We can tone it down later if we need to, but initially, we try to do something that is really unbelievable, really unexpected. You need to use irony but you need to use it with respect. In the past, it was easier to be provocative, but today, you definitely need to pay more attention because with social media, everyone can reply, everyone can say what they think.
You need to have more respect. And that is a vision I have to give to my team! That aspect is becoming harder. If you are small company, you can really work with each team member on a personal basis. I wish I could keep these relationships alive, but when you become a bigger company, you start to work with the managers, and the managers they have to transfer energy to the people below them.
Of course. I actually hate this. Is it important for you to maintain that balance? I like to smile because life can be so sad! Recently, we had a robbery at one of our Diesel warehouses and our entire collection was stolen. Everyone wants Diesel! I gain respect year by year because I have a good relationship with everyone. In the fashion industry, your neighbor becomes like your enemy. Most designers hate each other, they are all jealous of one another. But me, I love to see what the other people are doing. I see my competitors and other brands around me as stimulation for me to do better.
What could you do not to suffer anymore? In the case with Mr. Fassbinder, however, it was definitely not necessary. I knew that after that I could work with any and every director — he could be as complicated as he wanted because Fassbinder topped them all! There are directors who are temperamental, there are guys who are very friendly, and then others who turn around and are not friendly anymore, so as a cinematographer, you have to accept that the director has his own ideas. You have to be open. You have to be very tolerant.
In the end after working with someone like Fassbinder, nobody could hurt me.

I worked with other directors and I did not suffer at all. What do you think sets directors like Fassbinder or Martin Scorsese, with whom you worked later in your career, apart from other filmmakers? Fassbinder and Scorsese both had images in their head. They had an imagination of how their movie should look.
It was good — I think the idea is the most important thing. Execution is easier! But having that idea is the hard part. You and Fassbinder famously pioneered the degree tracking shot in film. What was it like bringing that particular idea to fruition? Did you know at the time that you were doing something that would change the film industry? I saw when I did it that it was something very impressive. Inventing something like that, it always changes something.
I learned a lot from DPs, just as other DPs learned from me. Later they came up with ways of hanging lights and stuff to make this kind of shot easier, so it became pretty popular to do a And then I started not doing it anymore! Laughs There are not too many new ideas that you can have anymore! The imagery has to tell the right story. It has to come together! You have to understand what the story is about and then find out how to make images that work for the story.
You have to know which shots will work for the type of screen — film or television. I did one film recently about the kidnap victim Natascha Kampusch. The room was only seven square meters… There was only one bulb hanging from the ceiling, so it affected how we shot, but it was also necessary for the story. What inspires your cinematography? I read that you believe that watching films is the best way to prepare for making a movie. We watched all the movies that started from these directors… They were inspiring because they broke the rules!
They did something different. The camera was, at that time, not very flexible, but the DP who shot most of these movies, he just took his camera on his shoulder and sat down on a wheelchair and drove down the road in Paris, just in front of his actors! And it was wonderful! It was free all of a sudden. When you moved from Germany to America, did you find that the way of telling a story through film was different?
I was afraid that it would be. When I started working with Scorsese and other American directors, I just continued working but in a different language. Laughs I learned pretty fast when I started working with the first American directors, they look at film and they have the same approach to things. So creating those emotional moments in film… They feel the same, whatever you do. But then I learned that I probably have no talent for that. To see how this collaboration works, to see the combination of what they invented together and how they connected, the ideas they came up with together… That was amazing for me.
The director had a great idea and then the cinematographer would fulfill it. Watching them work, that is when I first thought filmmaking would be something wonderful that I would love to do. That did it to me. Why did you prefer writing non-fiction over fiction? Whereas in non-fiction, I think if I walk into a room, I really know how to make it work as a good piece of page-turning writing.
I think I always had a natural aptitude for it, right from the beginning. There was a kind of infiniteness to fiction that I found sort of… Disconcerting. I could make him do anything! I could put a jetpack onto his back and shoot him into space! Your journalism often investigates ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. Are you interested in that tension? With journalism, I want to find really unexpected unfolding situations, and with fiction, you kind of do the opposite. Fiction is like the quest for believability, and the kind of non-fiction that I do is almost like a quest for unbelievability.
You know what? I really admire the kinds of writers who do that. I really admire Nick Hornby , for example, the way that he can make ordinary stuff so beautiful! What I try and do is re-humanize them. It really shocks me how instant judgment has become so fashionable these days. Exactly, it starts on social media and then it goes into mainstream media and politics. Twitter is becoming like the Stasi! And I think that really captures a kind of deep thing in me… I feel kind of outraged by that.
Exactly, I became like a little bit of a fucking meme , and it was to an extent my own fault because I was talking about it! And in my case, I was the guy who defended unfashionable victims of shaming! I pretty much totally went kind of underground after that, and stopped giving interviews. It was horrible! Each one of my books is increasingly humanistic and non-mocking.
This is a big realization for me.
