You seem to explore the depths of foreign lands without hesitation. How do you get past that alien feeling in a foreign country, to actually go deeper than an average tourists would? 

When travelling, there’s only one thing you should really be doing and it’s to undertake a deep cultural exploration to satisfy your curiosity, pioneering your way if need be. It’s the reason why you’re there. Sometimes, I even feel more hesitant when I’m at home. When exploring, I become so sensitive to everything in my surroundings, this alien feeling fuels my curiosity and my inspiration instead of scaring me. I feel this urgent need of documenting everything I see by telling a story. If it draws me off the beaten path, it’s even better. Being a photographer gives you the perfect reason to explore deeper and deeper.

Tell us about your love for 35mm film, and why it is special to you.

Even though I learned with digital, I will always seem to choose film. My approach to photography itself changes completely. With a roll of 36 or even 12 frames, there is no way you want to miss one shot. There is no room for shooting frenzies and trial and error. Therefore, I will think and compose my images differently, with better precision. The mechanical feeling of analog is unique. It acts like an extension of my body and mind and I feel much closer to my subjects. Ultimately, I get to spend less time sorting and processing images, and more time shooting. And that’s what it’s all about.
