“The main challenge is to find the right image for the concepts I’m working with. Sometimes finding the images can take a lot of time, more than the composition itself. The most important thing is that the composition works as one image; cohesiveness between the elements is the key, everything needs to work as a single image. I always make sure to buy the rights of an image, or work with public-domain images. You cannot simply use an image found on the Internet.”
