What interested you about becoming a photographer?
– It was probably the many hours I spent with my dad, an amateur photographer, in his dark room watching him magically turning plain white paper into wonderful pictures using a 'light machine' and some magic fluids in colored trays. There was some magic about this room behind the always closed door. I remember the dimmed red light, the film rolls, the developed negative films hanging on clothespins and the many wet photos posted on the tile walls until dry. And when you were very very quiet and hold your breath you could actually watch the white paper in the fluid trays slowly coming to life when turning into a wonderful black and white photo... a photo that captured a moment in time

Where do you find inspiration to make your photographs?
– I still remember my dad's oversized NY PHOTO ACADEMY books from the sixties that I browsed thru many times when I was a kid. Since I am not native English, the descriptive words didn't make too much sense. So I focused on the pictures. Now, I have these occasional deja-vu's from time to time that sometimes remind me of one of these photos and I try to build a story around it.

What do you most like to photograph?
– Although I am addicted to Street Photography, I very much like to shoot people with a focus on vintage photography of the 60's and the early 70's

Who are your favorite photographers?
– I like Peter Lindbergh's work
