What interested you about becoming
– Ever since I was a child I've had this problem/obsessive curiousity that I need to know how things work. When I see something new that I've never experienced before, I need to know how it works and I need to know whether I can learn, if not master, that skill. Three to four years ago a friend showed me his DSLR. Immediately I needed to know how it worked. It was definitely the technological interest that drove me into photography first. But when I stepped in I saw endless possibilities; from the rules of compositions, to the exposure, to the depth of field. There are so many tools to create and sustain timeless imagination, and that is what interested me about becoming a photographer. My main interest lies in conceptual art. To me it seems the term photographer is taken and applied very lightly in modern times, but it holds a very prestigious and highly artistic meaning and I dare not call myself a “photographer.” Not today and probably never.
Where do you find inspiration to
make your photographs?
– I draw inspiration from several sources. My photos will not seem appealing to most people as the inspiration of my photos are drawn from the deepest part of our thoughts. I strongly believe in the power of imagination. And my photos are simply meant to bring imagination into existence as a photograph.
What do you most like to
– I love conceptual work, whether it be set up or candid. Still life is also a category of interest. I love taking photographs that involve provocation of thoughts as you will see in my "QUESTIONS" photo series. More often than not, I will almost always prefer black and white photos.
Who are your favorite photographers?
– I haven't seen much conceptual work that suits my taste so no one in that are. Photojournalism is a field I have not explored yet but so far I have seen beautiful work from Steve McCurry and GMB Akash.
There are so many talented people it's impossible to specify.
