Marc Ressang

I’m a Dutch photographer and filmmaker, and I’ve been based in Shanghai for over 7 years now, doing mostly commercial and documentary cinematography work.

On the side, I try to capture daily life and behind the scenes of the projects that I’m working on through still photography.

In the last 10 years I’ve been busy shooting video and photo projects all over East Asia but at the moment, I’m focusing on doing personal film projects.

With these films and photos I’m trying to find the fine line between documentary and stylized storytelling.


Fun 5

1. Favorite movie of all time? 有史以来你最喜欢的电影是哪一部?Baraka and Samsara are probably my favorite movies – I could watch those over and over again.
可能是《天地玄黄》和《轮回》两部片子,百看不厌。2. Coolest place you’ve travelled to 旅行去过的最有意思的地方是哪里?

I went to Afghanistan for a documentary project a few years ago. My week there amazing but unfortunately didn’t have the luxury to explore the country more.

3.Winter or summer? 喜欢夏天还是冬天?

Summer. I prefer being hot and sweaty over ice cold hands and feet.


4. Someone you would like to have dinner with? 想跟谁一起共进晚餐?

Dead or alive, Anthony Bourdain.

5. Last photograph you took? 你拍的最后一张照片是什么?

I have been experimenting with infrared photography recently, and the last decent picture I took was of a shaman in the Indonesian jungle.
