What inspires you?
The work of Vivian Maier & desert landscapes. What I love about Vivian's work is that it's honest which is something that I always aim for when making photographs. I love visiting deserts because there is so much mystery about them. The fact that a plants can grow in a desert is amazing to me and I feel like there is so much about life and death that we can learn from deserts in general.
What do you fear?
Not living into my dreams.
