How long have you been taking photographs?
5 years in general, 3 together.
How did you two start working together?
What was your personal photography like before you met and started working together?
Hmm . . . it was quite weird–Tania was taking pictures of some childish surrealistic performances, and Roman started with shooting his pretty university teachers.
Thoughts about first images ever taken together, describe them?
Sweet like all the beauty pics.
What do you see when you look at your work now?
That we are tired of seeing it.
What do you hope others will see, if anything? Their experience?
Hope they will be puzzled.
What do you look for in an image? What makes a great photograph for you?
The picture should be memorable and taken by you and nobody else before.
Viviane Sassen since today.
None, though the last good book we read was The Holy Bible.
Favorite places online?
Young photographers who most inspire you now?
What do you admire about Zhu and Sassen’s work?
Bruno because he sees things closer than we are used to, and Viviane as she has shown Africa from the other angle, you feel amused seeing it, not sorry for anything, and not shocked by the level of life, just amused.
Where do you want to take your photography, or vice versa?
Peru and Iceland.

Last question. What’s been the biggest lesson about working in collaboration?
Speak up when you have a crappy idea to talk it over and make a good idea out of it.
