My visual inspirations draw from my surroundings – the sun light, colour, shadows at different times of the day… I love to tell stories with my images, as simple or complex, that is always something I aim to achieve. I am inspired by films that narrate unconventional stories, such as Mic Mac and Mary and Max. I admire photographers such as Javier Vallhonrat for his dramatic Carravagio-esque lighting and colour, Paolo Roversi’s powerful imagery and women, Camilla Akran’s strength and sensuality and the looseness of her narration, I also very much admire that Tim Walker is able to bring us his vivid imagination while still being able to maintain the humanity in his imagery that enables us to accept the possibilities of its reality.
