Their Interviews

It wasn't enough, it is never enough I guess. While purchasing an idea of perfection which doesn't exist (I had to guess by myself) and by seeing things go in the wrong directions many times, well, I had to fulfill this void, I had to find something else to chase, to start somewhere else. I left Paris because I needed a change, I craved to find inspiration. I am always thinking about the next project, What could, What should I do to keep my mind stimulated. Maybe by becoming more aware of my surrounding? What can I do enlighten my journey? The answer might be there, who knows? Each place I've been lucky enough to travel to, I was curious to know & meet creative people that make a city vibrate. This is their journey, their stories throughout analog pictures I took and stories I wrote. Thanks for taking the time to learn about them and most of all to read their interviews.
