I discovered The Bikeriders by Danny Lyon about 16 years ago, and it inspired me to become the photographer I am today. A great photo book, it deals with pop culture and cult lifestyles, which are my favorite subjects to capture as well. My personal passion is to explore and document diversity and urban street cultures. Cult fashion in particular is a big interest of mine. I like to think that my book Big Up has a lot of those subjects going on in it too.
