“I still don’t know what my main purpose as a photographer is,” she said. “To immortalize people in some way, I guess.”
Eclectic and spontaneous, Ashley always keeps her 120 Velvia Film ISO 100 near her. She loves photographers Diane Arbus and Deborah Turbeville and is obsessed about Instagramming. She’s inspired by some art movements such as impressionism, minimalism, and is completely obsessed with Dadaism.
