When did you decide to become a photographer?
It was a few years ago I guess. I had been working abroad and traveling a lot for a few years, taking a lot of images. I thought they were getting increasingly better, and I felt my passion developing, and sort of felt it was to be my calling.
How would you define your style of photography?
I'd say it's very observatory and documentary, very real life. I like to watch scenes develop and really try to capture the moments in, hopefully, very powerful ways. I know perhaps it sounds quite cliche, but I guess that what it boils down to.
Who are the most influential photographers in your career?
I'd have to say Nachtwey was one of the first whose images just blew me away with their power. I've also been really into Alex Webb and his use of layers lately. Simply amazing things he can capture. Many other great shooters who I'm sure we all known as well, but also some of my colleagues and friends here in Vietnam, like Kevin German and Justin Mott, I get a lot of inspiration from.
