What does street culture mean to you?
It’s an expression, a way to be yourself.
In your opinion as a photographer, what makes a good photograph?
That’s a tough question when we are constantly bombarded with visuals everyday. I guess for me it’s when the picture tells a story or makes you think how did the photographer capture that photo.
What travel-sized camera would you recommend?
What do you think about film photography?
I think many people are still shooting film because you just can’t get the same picture with a digital camera. There’s a certain pace when you pick up a film camera to shoot. You can’t just go around snapping pictures. It’s a good way to stay calm, think, compose and capture. Every different film stock is like your colour palette.
What is your latest song obsession?
Watch Me Dance by Tom Misch.
