What gives you inspiration?

I mostly get my inspiration from beautiful light in everyday situations and while driving around in my car, especially in twilight, with the windows open and while there’s some good music playing.

What are your influences?

Lee Friedlander, Gary Winogrand, Stephen Shore, Franco Fontana, Massimo Vitali. I also love the new generation of photographers whose work appear on websites like yours. And of course one of my favorite painters: Edward Hopper.

Why did you choose these photos?

I think these are some of the best graphical pictures I made. But choosing just four was rather hard.

What does photography mean to you?

It’s what I love to do, my way of expressing things I cannot say in words.
