A/A: What has been the biggest influence in your photography practice?
AF: I think my biggest influence has been my dad, 'cause he taught me to properly use a camera and take "correct" pictures when I was 8, and ever since I've been trying to see what happens if I don't do what I was told to, and mess things up.
A/A: What attracted you to alternative photography?
AF: What attracts me most about alternative photography is the fact that you can't really predict the outcome. I find that strangely soothing in a "this does not depend on me" sort of way. It can be a little disappointing sometimes, or even frustrating, but what isn't?
A/A: Do you have a favorite alternative photography technique?
AF: My favourite technique is using very, very expired film. I find that each brand ages differently, and also the storage time and conditions make different effects, and I love that.
