Where are you from? Where do you live?
I was born in southern Nigeria, I grew up in northern Italy and I current live in Paris, France.
How old are you?
29 and counting.
How do you pay your bills? Are you working as a professional photographer?
No, I am not.
What cameras do you use?
A Nikon D300 and a Polaroid sometimes. I have other ones but I seldom use them. I would like to buy a “small” medium format, a Rolleiflex probably.
Any photographer or artist inspiring you?
Too many but the list is shifting a bit in this period. A lot of the imagery I used to like bores me now.
But many survive like Edward Hopper, Jean-François Lepage, Todd Hido, Mona Kuhn, Joel Meyerowitz or William Eggleston.
What/who do you enjoy to shoot the most?
People. After all, every type of photography we do is about some person. Be it the photographer or the subject, understanding human beings is the key to good photographs, whatever subject one might choose.
Do you believe in god?
What do you drink on a night out?
Cocktail “sans alcool” 🙂 I used to not like alcohol and I still do but I might drink a glass of wine when in company.
Do you like dancing?
I love dancing a lot. Give me good music and I can go on all night.
What’s your favorite first name?
I don’t know. Something not taken from the Bible for a change. Something original.
Are you a fashion addicted?
No, I am not addicted.
What’s your favorite tv series?
Favorite ever? The first season of Dexter. Recently? Boss.
Recommend us a book.
One I finished recently: Catch 22. It’s a satire about how humanity can be so grotesque some times.
What’s the country of your dreams?
I daydream a lot about places I have never visited. The country of my dreams is definitely Iceland.
Have you ever been to Iceland?
No, unfortunately not.
What song would you choose for a slideshow of your work?
“Ring of Fire”, the cover version by Jack Savoretti: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BrmZ0mr_j5I
Ask yourself a question. Tell me your answer (like Marzullo does)
What should you do to become a good photographer?
Care more, shoot projects, talk less, think less.
