We had the pleasure of being at your show last night, we really enjoyed your work, it’s a nice discovery. We noticed that you made a lot of black and white photos, why this choice?
Norman Reedus: You were able to see everything? There were so many people, it’s crazy! I do not know. It comes naturally. I put the black and white mode on the camera and I start taking a picture. I never told me watching something “Well, it would be better in black and white” .
It’s not planned, so it comes like a feeling, of course?
Norman Reedus: I think if you are planning things, you do not get what you really want. I never take a color photograph to end up putting it in black and white afterwards. Did you know that Norman Reedus is also passionate about photography?
