“Photographers are the new rock stars in the sense that it’s like, the artist is only as big as the photos or the visuals. Some people will take photos just for the sake of it, but I want [to be like] Chi Modu, Jonathan Mannion, what they did in their time. In 20 years, I want kids to look at my photos and be like ‘Oh, from 2013 to 2050, this is what the culture looked like.”
