HARD WIRED / 10 Questions
1. What does your daily consumption of media look like? (e.g. what websites, apps, social networks etc / good instagram accounts to follow etc)
I’m pretty manic in my media consumption schedule, I wouldn’t say that any two days are the same. My happy place are podcasts, oddly enough. I love Radiolab from WNYC in New York. I used to listen to it on the radio when I lived there. Reminds me a bit of home maybe. I spend a lot of time working on Instagram, and end up drawing inspiration from so many accounts on there. @Larusmiani is a favourite, a close friend and collaborator based in Milan where he has the oldest boutique on Via Montenapoleone.
Thundercat just released a track with Michael McDonald and Kenny Logins called 'Show You The Way'. Fucking excellent.
Do the opposite for a while, go for a long drive and forget about it.
I photographed the ceiling of a room in the Louvre the other day, it was overwhelming. I had tears in my eyes just thinking about how someone could make that.
There are collections of cars hidden all over Latin America that I am desperate to document. I was supposed to be down there for the last few months before Covid happened. I can’t wait to get back there.
6 One small piece of advice given to you that you can pass on?
Be kind to everyone you meet on your way up, you’ll meet them again on your way down.
7 Favourite Colour:
8 Last indulgent purchase
All of my camera equipment feels indulgent at first, then I take it out into the field and it feels like a tool.
9 Your super power, what would it be?
Documenting a world that inherently doesn’t like to be documented in a respectful way.
10 …..whats your kryptonite?! (stops you from working, distracts you , a weakness …)
