A COLLECTION OF MY WORK

DAPHNE X CHAYA

AN INTERVIEW. IT’S BEEN A WHILE, PERHAPS MY FIRST ON THIS WEBSITE. I’D HAVE TO BACKTRACK TO CHECK BUT I DON’T THINK I CARE THAT MUCH TO SCROLL. LAZY, I KNOW. IM INTERVIEWING DAPHNE, A QUIRKY 20 SOMETHING YEAR OLD WHO’S VOICE CHANGES WHEN SHE SPEAKS TO HER MUM ON THE PHONE. WHO LAUGHS AT EVERYTHING, AND WHO TAKES PHOTOS FOR PLEASURE. I THINK SHE INTIMIDATED ME AT FIRST, MOST PEOPLE DO. MORESO SHE IMPRESSED ME, I LOVED HER WORK AND HER ATTITUDE AND FUCK SHE'S FUNNY. WE PROBABLY SPENT TOO MUCH TIME TOGETHER THIS PAST WEEK. MY CREATIVE BONE FINALLY KICKED IN A MONTH AFTER LEAVING SCHOOL AND I HAVE HAD THIS SUDDEN URGE TO GET IT ALL OUT AND INTO THE WORLD, TO CREATE MORE BEFORE THE NEW YEAR. DAPHNE HAS BEEN AN ANGEL, EAGER TO HELP CREATE AND SO FREAKING GOOD AT WHAT SHE DOES.
