Which color touches you the most ?
White, peaceful and strong.
What is the first thing you do in the morning?
I open my eyes; from my bed I look through the window and see the sky and palm trees. The light and colors set the tone for my day. It's same image every day with different hues. A joy.
Which song lets your imagination carry on away somewhere ?
"Out of this world" by John Coltrane
What's your favorite food/meal?
Anything with veggies, grains, olive oil and parmesan.
What is your favorite moment of the day ?
Dawn & sunset
Do you remember the first picture you ever took?
No, I don't. But I have a feeling it was still-life.
In what kind of mood are you into those days?
Secretive & creative.
What do you feel is influencing photography and photographers in a big way today?
The Art market, and the overload of information and images we ingest every day from the virtual world.
Some of your favorite references ? (photography, art, movies, literature.....)
This is a long and ever-growing list, but I would say that my favorite references in art, literature, photography, cinema, and music are rooted in the contemporary art/cultural movements. The avant-garde movement, counter-culture, independent culture, the abstract and minimalism.
Anything with an innovative, visionary and unique voice, and a rebellious scream.
