How did the idea for the series come about?

 

I had shooting in the sunrise on my mind. The colours and light are awesome and watching a sunrise is always cool and magical. I told Lydia about it and she was cool with that. We woke up at 6am or something like this and went to the beach in my hometown and hung out.

 

How did your shoot with Lydia go?

 

It was great, watching the light and all of that made it easy and fast. But it was fucking cold, especially for her, you can see it on her face lol.

 

Can we photograph the female body differently in a more powerful way?

 

Yes, of course. But I don’t know. We can photograph all the things in a more powerful way but it depends on the things you want to say.

 

What inspires you?

 

All the things that surround us, the funny things, the ‘wtf’ things. The things that make me ask myself questions. Art, fashion, photographers, movies inspire me too.

 

Film or digital?

 

Both are cool if you know how to use them and if you know how to make the best out of them. But I prefer film because I feel better shooting with it and I prefer the results.

 

What makes you happy?

 

The good people and the good surprises.

 

What’s next for you?

 

I’m in my last year of university. I want to travel, get bigger and do bigger things.
