1. How would you describe your photographic style?A mixed form of documentary and architecture, with an element of humanity. I’m sure there is an academic term, but I wouldn’t be the best to ask for it.
2. What inspires you in life?The mundane parts that make life so extraordinary to wake up to every day. The unvarnished raw Happiness, Sorrow, Yearning, Desires, loss, responsibilities, achievements, hunger, love, beauty.
3. How did you become a photographer?There are days now where I wonder how it happened. I got a camera from my father at the tender age of 11. I used this as the opportunity to remodel my parent’s sauna into a dark room. This room became my second hide out. Not only for processing images, but it was good because a darkroom is one of those places that should always be closed no questions asked.
4. What is your favourite cocktail?Oh that’ll be Sicilian peach Bellini for summer, and an Old Fashioned for Winter.
5. What would you wear drinking a 44°N Gin & Tonic?A Sinatra porkpie panama, double breasted linen suit, calf leather Barkers, yellow acetate frames with blue lens. Think John Malkovich in ‘The sheltering sky’.
6. What excited you about the Comte de Grasse project?Everything! The audaciousness, inventiveness, freshness, coolness, technicality, seductiveness.
7. What is the next part of the CDG project that you really want to capture in image?Seeing how the first parts have been about development and heritage now it’s all about the bottle, the content and the nature. I want to know who the people are drinking it, what will they look like in photos. Where would they drink it?
