When and why you started to be interested in photography?
My passion for Photography grew since childhood. I would gaze at photographs in the magazines, posters, photographs on national newspaper for hours after hours. They would pull my thoughts in. I came to realize Photography is therapeutic for me. It serves me and others in return.
What do you expect of this year and who do you want the most to have class with?
I expect to learn from my surroundings and give back in return. It is a part of my longer journey that started times back. Would love to have classes with Joan Fontcuberta, John Francois Chevrier, Viviane Sassen, Irina Tchmyreva.
What do you expect of the rest of the students?
There is something else we should know about you?
I take my inspirations from music, people I meet in the everyday life, animals.
