For how long have been in photography? How did you start?

About 10 years.At the end of my studies, I borrowed a camera from a friend of mine to photograph my paintings and drawings . And then very quickly I discovered this was the best medium to express myself I was looking for.

How would you define yourself as an artist?

I don’t like to call myself an artist , I’m just a photographer with huge need of creation. Besides nowdays world aritis and art is so over exploited.

Where do you find inspiration?

I know it sounds so trivial : everywhere. I just stay focused on the world that surrounds me.

Is Brainstorming not the only creative method use to create new concepts? Actually no, becouse I don’t use brainstorming at all, ideas come to my head just like that.

Please could you tell us about photography and digital technology?
