What is Instagram for you?
Instagram for me is primarily a photo sharing platform.  The work you share should not need words or explanation. A good photo should reach an audience emotionally, and that is why I like to share on Instagram, because a photo on Instagram should not, and doesn’t need a thousand words.
Why/when did you decide to start sharing your work there?

I started sharing my work on Instagram in December 2016 when I shot digital photography.  I shared my first film photograph on the 24th of May 2017.  At that point I had given up on digital completely, sold every lens and piece of digital photography equipment I had, and invested purely in film.  I have since deleted all of my digital photographs from Instagram, but all of them can be found here

How would you describe your style?
I would describe my style as both documentary and street and above all, 100% candid.
What materials do you mainly work with?
I work with a Leica M4, a Carl Zeiss Biogon 35mm and usually Kodak Tri-x 400 pushed to 1600.  I am a great believer in using one camera and one lens, and especially a prime lens.  A 35mm prime lens puts you somewhere you may not be particularly comfortable in, but it pushes you, until you become a part of what you photograph.
