What inspires you?
Yves Drillet: These days I’m really into Jacques Rozier and Cassavetes’ movies. Those two guys rocked, they knew how to let the camera play and create a really special intensity. I’m also a huge fan of 80s movies by Coppola, “The Outsiders” and “Rumble Fish” among others, it’s the best of what you can expect from classic Hollywood movies, the beauty of youth and a timeless aesthetic. Within photography I love Collier Schorr, Ari Marcopoulos, Eric Nehr and many more. The work of Roe Ethridge blows my mind, he is so intelligent and knows exactly what he’s doing and how art and commercial work can be the same but different. I’m also looking at a lot of up-and-coming photographers and I think Jamie Hawkesworth, Coley Brown and Letty Schmiterlow are really great.
