How long have you been taking photographs?
For about four years.

Thoughts about first images ever taken, describe them?
Some of my first photos were simple observations of the world around me, they were some sort of a document of my surroundings.

What do you see when you look at your work now?
I see how much my style has changed by the influence of information I’ve gathered from other forms of visual art and literature.

What do you hope others will see, if anything? Their experience?
I hope they will find my photographs intriguing enough to give them another look.

What do you look for in an image? What makes a great photograph for you?
A hidden subtext, maybe, and some sort of story, definitely.

Talk about how literature inspires your photography?
It is more about the thoughts literature provokes than visual imagery. I often get tempted to translate certain feelings into visuals, or even notice how my previous photos fit into some literary work, and work from there.

In terms of portraiture, is it easier to be in front of the camera or behind? Do you have a preference?
Lately, I get more ideas for photographing myself, but that doesn’t necessarily mean I prefer it to photographing other people. Also, I’ve discovered I’m really interested in some sort of abstract landscape, to me, those look like transfers from another world.

Where do you want to take your photography, or vice versa?
I want it to further educate me, and to help me explore myself.
