Short bio…

Traditional self taught photographer living and working in Europe.

You shoot film because…

Analog requires me to commit to the process and to make creative decisions. In other photography mediums, you don’t have to really put as much photo and make a firm commitment as you can take 200 and hope 1 turns out, or spend hours fixing and making it right on a computer. With film, you have to be technically and artistically perfect and a quite lucky. I like the effort, work, and also being able to make my own output starting from exposing light on the film to making a final print in a darkroom.

Your photography feels like…

One of my favorite films is “Paris, Texas” by Wim Wenders. The film isn’t high impact at first watch, but builds up and the imagery becomes more apparent after spending some time with it. I would hope that my photography is a mix of what I am personally drawn to and I aspire that it even has a small glimmer of the subtle imagery, underlying emotions, and bleak landscape that the film has.
