“My favorite place has always been the darkroom, where I can shoot negatives, develop my own film, print my own pictures. It allows me to express myself clearly and concisely. I am not a good drawer or a good painter in any sense, but I like creating stuff in general, especially with my photography. I think it allows people to be themselves – to be honest, and express what they feel, that for some is not necessarily what they are able to express with words, but through some other medium. In the end, I think the biggest thing is not only expressing yourself –your true emotions– but also communicating with others, being able to interact and create a tie with others, and relate to how other people feel. I think art helps me accomplish this.”
