2. Tell me about one thing you're wearing.
I am wearing an old watch that my father gave me for Christmas. It's a watch with a winder that you have to manually charge everyday, I really like it and I have been wearing it since I got it.
3. What influences the way you dress?
I don't think I really have an influence for the way I dress. Until a year ago I didn't pay much attention to what I was wearing. I used to do shopping for necessity and if I liked something I would buy two or three different versions of the same item. Now I like to try out different things and to wear clothes I really like and I am comfortable with, but I'm still not a big fan of the shopping process!
4. You photograph a lot of people, how much does what someone’s wearing contribute to the final image?
I think that definitely the clothes that someone is wearing during a shoot have a big impact on the aesthetic of the image and also on the connotation of the image. But at the same time they don't have to steal the attention from the person portrayed in the photograph. That's why sometimes when I do test shoots with new faces I ask them to bring some of their own clothes because I want them to feel comfortable in what they are wearing and I think you can capture more of their personalities.
5.Last question... individual or collaboration?
I really enjoy working with a team especially when you have a good chemistry and you are sharing a common vision. At the end everybody is adding something of their own to the final image.
