"Well, I hate saying this because it sounds sort of pretentious, but since I was very little I’ve always made art, in some form or another. It wasn’t a career choice; I was just doing it because I needed to, because it made me feel whole.
Then, when I was 15 I took this photo of my younger sister’s three girlfriends sitting on my bed, and one of them was smoking, and when I got the image back it really surprised me - it was really interesting in a way that I didn’t expect, with a strange sadness and beauty to it.
After that I decided to keep documenting those girls, and so for the past five years I’ve been taking photos of my younger sister and her friends.
That was unconsciously my first photo project, and what started everything. It’s really crazy because now all the girls have graduated and are going to university.”
