‘…I’m kinda torn on the subject – I do prefer the dreamlike, washed out ones [photographs] Hamilton used to create. …cold, stark ones do have their appeal no doubt and I still make them sometimes but they are almost always just a foundation for something else.  …yeah, drawings of course but more and more they serve their purpose by being adapted into something new, something more.’

‘…so no, I am not expecting to exhibit next year [2021] either. I also think many folks around me grow increasingly apathetic and bitter about the current state of the world. …it [exhibitions] is not feasable in so many different perspectives right now, that’s why I decided to begin work on a new book. …right now ? – I’m collecting some rare wildflowers.’

‘…yeah – where else should I be these days ? It [Studio Fambri] is the only other place outside my apartment where I’m “allowed” to be. …it’s actually kinda ironic because now folks get a glimpse into how I was forced to live for almost a decade.’

‘…trust is essential between an artist and his subjects because if absent nothing he wants to create will materialize. …some of the girls I work with seem to have a natural ability to feel more comfortable when it comes to the subject of nudity. …yeah maybe that’s the reason – them knowing that I’m not just one of these people [photographers] who is out for photographs alone and using them as they are – in a plain “matter of fact” way. …me personally ? I find it boring just to make them [photographs] and not utilizing them further beyond touching them up via photoshop etc…’

‘…choosing photographs for the book has become a most difficult yet joyful task so far to be honest. …I do admire most of his [David Hamilton] work, even though the man himself has become indefensible after the revelations about him back in 2016.’

‘…also yes, I do like it when the sun finally reaches the room [Studio] again, the winters here are long enough and seem to get longer every year know. …yes it’s difficult to be under such tight constraints when it comes to locations but it will have to do for now.’

‘A couple of years ago I dismissed the idea of photography supplementing my artistic work in a rather elitist fashion. …drawing requires real skill, pushing a button doesn’t. A lot has changed since then to say the least.’
