What or who most influences your work?
- I am influenced spontaneously and very differently by each and every destination I visit: the culture, language, climate, food, colours, sounds and smells – a sensory journey that I try to capture in my images, and of course, it’s all about the moment.
Describe your photographic style for us in three words
- Vivid, hopeful, ethereal
Where is the most inspiring place you’ve travelled to and photographed in your career so far?
- I think Iceland and India. I don’t like to choose as everywhere is so special in its own right. But if I had too – Iceland for its obvious natural beauty, it feels as though you have been transported to another planet; and India for its colour and chaos. Both so different and wonderful to photograph.
If you could own a print by any photographer, whose would it be and why?
- Steve McCurry for his beautiful, memorable and powerful imagery.
What has photography taught you about the world?
- That there is so much to see, and that I have a need to see and capture as much as I can.
