Nickname(s) people have given you?

Weirdest dream you’ve had?

They’re all pretty weird, but fun fact: almost every photo concept I did, came from my dreams. I get almost all my inspiration out of my dreams, my notes and voice memos are full of ideas I wrote down in the middle of the night.

 

Favourite memory?

Showering with a garden hose naked in the garden at midnight with Salomé (I had no shower at that time and it was a really hot summer).
