Q. If you should describe your photography as only 3 keywords, what would you do?

Vibrant, Glossy, Goofy.

These were the first three words that popped into my head while scrolling through my website.

Q. If there are the reasons why we should take a photograph while we live, what do you say?

Photography is the most accessible way to abstract and interrupt our world, there’s no reason why anyone shouldn’t take a photograph.

Q. What is the most impressive quotation on photography?

I couldn't think of any famous photography quotes, so I started to look a few up and this is the funniest one I found: “I took them, I like them, and there’s power in that” by Kim Kardashian talking about taking selfies. It might not be the most esteemed quote but I think what she said is actually true.
