The image that is currently in the forefront of my mind

I can’t get these eyes out of my mind. One with lashes and the other one blind, the slash of red on the mouth and the baldness of the head. Whatever it is, a woman doing chemo or a transgender person, this image stays with me.

The image that changed my life

When I discovered the possibilities of Hipstamatic and mobile photography. I wasn’t able find the very first Hipstamatic I saw, but this was one of the first images to amaze me and made me want to try the app.

The image I wish I had created

Creeping into my skull and staying there forever, gorgeous yet disquieting. I wish I was able to do something like that… I wish ; )

Artwork that has influenced my art

Black and white street photography with mysterious  figures. The imagination unfolds, making up strange stories of deranged souls.

The image that is most underrated

Deeply disturbing self portraits depicting the deformities of the mind.

The image that changed my mind

From the moment I saw her art I was blown away. Ethereal flesh. Exquisite and unsettling. Hiding in the recesses of Instagram like the precious gem she is.

The most recent image that made me sad

Because I relate to the emotions, and because I will never be able to edit with such simple inventive elegance.

The most recent image that made me smile

Pure poetry, straight out of a fairy tale. And of course because I have imaginary friends too ; )

My comfort images

Always imaginative. I love the fact that even when she starts from her photos the final result rarely looks like her at all.

The image I would most like to give as a gift

This would make a lovely card, the kind you keep forever with dried flowers inside, a reminder of a truly special soul you connected to.
