MT: Thomas Ruff really opened my eyes. In photography, we are so driven by perfection; making it look good, properly lit, properly exposed, and properly composed – but he deconstructs images to their most basic pixels. That becomes the art form, which I think is an amazing way to work. I am constantly being challenged to look differently at the things I’ve been taught, when actually if you do completely the opposite, you might be better off.
