In this interview, we’re talking about his approach when shooting intimate portraits of Rockstars like Slash, Steven Tyler and Chester Bennington, how he was able to get his photos into important art museums (e.g. Morrison Hotel Gallery) and how a 3 months pilgrimage walk on Santiago’s Road helped him to connect to his inner-self with the result to live a more meaningful life.
