15. What inspires you?
People I see walking around the city, old photos of my parents from the 60s that they have in big boxes. I studied art history, so that is always a reference point. And, recently, I’ve loved looking at the photographs on old records- there is something so staged, but also casual about many of those images that I love and find very inspiring.
