TPL: Do you have any favourite artists or photographers you would like to share with us?
JG: Ara Güler, Orson Welles, Fan Ho, Roger Deakins, René Maltête, Erwitt Elliott and Henri Cartier-Bresson on photography. Michael Ende, Paul Watzlawick, Douglas Adams, Monty Python and Volker Pispers influenced my worldview.
Nearly two decades ago I worked for two years as a camera operator with Director of Photography Aturo D. Smith who likes to share his skills. He is known for his music video clips with the Beastie Boys, Marilyn Manson and several commercials and awarded feature films. His courage to find new perspectives and camera gear for each job has inspired me.
