Linx Selby: Interview

\\

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

The right mixture of loss, loneliness and urgency that leads to a need to assert one’s independence makes for the best artistic production.

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

TBD

Why do you do what you do?

Visual expression is the most tangible thing I can offer the world

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I started making films and doing photography for fun when I was young and have since been unable to stop

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Getting distracted with other things, being surrounded by a community of other young artist friends helps maintain focus and makes for constant inspiration

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

One of my first teachers told me to be the best person I can be, something I try to keep in mind

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

Convincing myself not to do something; putting the small effort in to take as many chances as possible is worth the occasional failure

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Lots of collab shoots planned including a few focusing on demystifying stereotypes of Asian girls

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)
