As an aspiring young photographer you know the scene. Your portrait series “Anti.Mono Stereo” 2015 won acclaimed prizes and made a name for you.
But tell us about your beginnings: How did you actually get into photography?
After many ups and downs in recent years, you’ve made it. Getting huge job offers on the table, but that´s not all, last Friday your first book “28mm EDITION | MANHATTAN ” came out. The special thing about this book is that you have made it with just one camera and a 28mm lens walking around New York City. For 30 days over 400km you have captured the life of one of the largest cities as honestly as possible.
But let's look behind the scenes: how did this project come about? Was the book planned right from the start?
It must have been an emotional journey. What moments were the most touching?
Do you have a tip or recommendation for any young photography talents?
If time, money and other factors didn´t matter, what would your absolute dream project look like?
Can you tell our readers how you publish your pictures and how does social media play a role for you?
What experiences have you got so far with image theft?
What have you done so far to protect yourself from image piracy?
Thank You Tomaso
