What do you think of the new media?
I have no opinion on new media, we have work with what we have or we'll be stuck forever in a time we don't live in.

A movie that inspired you?
A movie that inspires me daily is Sada (1998), Japan. It’s everything.

Your 35mm work is interesting. When did you start and how?
I started taking photos when I was 14 and would ask my older brother if I could use his camera. He would usually only let me take one or two photos so I decided to try my own. I had a phase where I stopped with the film and worked on studio stuff only. After reading a ton of memoirs and looking at large books of photos I realized that I wanted to document my entire life and the best way to do it was with a point and shoot. This way I could be carefree and conservative at the same time!
