On art and fashion: “My favorite photographers have always been ones that blur the distinction between the two, so I don’t feel comfortable being categorized as either one. I don’t see where one ends and another begins when I’m creating images… I’ve always been interested in fashion, but seeing the industry up close has greatly influenced the way I interpret clothing in my work. But above all, I just want to create imagery that speaks of human behavior in an honest way, and that can lend itself to any style.”
