A/A:  How were these images created?

LD: All of the images were created using 35 mm film, the first four are on purple lomo chrome the fifth is on cross processed expired ektachrome and the last was a cross processed expired mystery film.

A/A: What got you interested in film?

LD: I was living in Vietnam and there's a huge emergence of do and analog culture in Hanoi. I became curious and started experimenting with different films when I moved back home.

A/A:  Do you have a favorite thing to shoot?

LD: I love taking photos of people while they are waiting, typically in an urban setting.

A/A:  What is your biggest inspiration?

LD: My biggest inspiration is the drive to and from work. I get an opportunity to see the world, as mundane as it can seem, in the most beautiful light of the day twice a day.  It gives me an opportunity to understand my surroundings better and to be given creative ideas as I drive along.
