How did you get into photography? How long have you been shooting?
Something caused by the absence of feeling. Preserving life because I don't know how to feel. I had the idea that I might one day be able to if I spend the time looking. I want to call it still recent. Some years if it's my third. I'm not sure.
Can you describe what it was like seeing your first prints?
Whats your process like? What equipment do you use?
How long has it taken you to get where you are visually?
I look forward to the time I can spend drawing. I want to work with fabrics and also build what I won't call sculptures. I'll use other cameras again but I make polaroids most comfortably. I am very emotionally crushed by the thought of not being able to do this forever.
Who is making stuff that inspires you these days?
I don't know how to answer this.
Favourite painters, musicians, photographers, fashion designers,
writers, lawyers, doctors?
For now I only love sea monsters.
What does your average day consist of?
Your images are always very layered eerie and vibrant. Did it take a lot of experimentation to get to where you are now?
What ideas are you trying to get across to the viewer?
But I'm in high school still and all of this couldn't ever agree with me. I could always stay asleep if not woken by this schedule. Too much to do or I just avoid it because I know my sleep efforts will regardlessly be unsuccessful. When I go to sleep I think about the most unfortunate awakenings I inevitably face and as the stress builds it becomes a horrid task. It hurts to know what I'll feel when I see that there are so few hours I can spend sleeping and it's so devastating that I stay awake for hours more. The thought of how bad I'll feel the next day is of course less painful than what really hits me. When I get the chance to lie in a bed all I want to do is think.
Somehow in childhood I came to think of sleep as a weakness. Always said with pride that I'm never tired. There's that vulnerability associated with sleeping. I still fear it.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Do you have any dream projects you'd like to put together in the future?
I think your style would translate well with video. Is that something you've explored or wish to?
Any last words?
I haven't been paying attention.
