What interested you about becoming
– I became interested in storytelling as a child, and began drawing comics, which naturally led me to film and photography. I have an interest in capturing visual metaphors, and photography allows me to do it spontaneously and improvisationally.
Where do you find inspiration to
make your photographs?
– The beauty of the world and the subjects I work with. Every photo session is a new adventure as every person I work with brings something unique to the project.
What do you most like to
– I started by photographing landscapes, which later influnced my portraits. Landscape plays as important of a role as the subject, the interaction between the two. I tend to work with friends, and those who usually do not engage in art on everyday basis, most are working 9-5 jobs in highly structured enviroments. I ask them to take a day out of their life & choose their wardrobe and a location. From there on, photographs unfold spontaneously, with no particular structure. The idea is to relax and free the mind to the point where action becomes impulsive, physicality takes over, and the subjects dont think but rather do what they feel at the moment. Ideally, a visual metaphor is captured, a story is told, or at the very least, the energy of the moment is communicated.
Who are your favorite photographers?
– Bresson, Frank, and Witkin. As far as contemporary photographers, Tarik Samarah, Todd Hido, Mike Brodie, and Alex Prager, to name a few.
