What is the inspiration behind your minimalist photo collection?
I personally like simple things, but those simple things have to be very interesting and well considered. I like to meet and get involved with people who share the same interest and way of thinking, be it a matter of fashion, design, architecture etc. All these things reflect my style and the way I am.

How does your surroundings impact your creativity?
Apart from my formal study, I have been observing different styles of people in the cyber world. Not only am I very interested in minimalism, which I especially like, but I also find designs of different directions very intriguing and resourceful. I often visit book stores in Bangkok where designers meet and exchange ideas. It is a great source of new inspiration.

When and how do you decide to take a photo?
Whenever I decide to take pictures, I mostly do it in my room and in the morning as the light is more beautiful. All those pictures were taken out of my own understanding, inspiration and imagination.

What is your favourite quote on minimalism?
”Less is more.” — Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
