Current town: Tirana, Albania
Film and/or Digital:
I use both. I have a weakness for analogue and for its processes magic, but I’d not underrate digital as well. It’s cheap, fast and good if you’re making experiments. I find the analogue-versus-digital dialogue pointless, actually, because in the end, it doesn’t matter the [...]
