IP: Where are you from? What place do you call home?
SAG: I was born in Nice, France. I live in London but go back to Nice whenever I can. London and Nice is just the perfect combo!
IP: When did you first pick up a camera? Did you study photography or are you self-taught?
SAG: My mother is an interior design journalist, as a teenager I would often come with her on trips to assist photographers. I started messing around with cameras at around 16 I think . I have never studied but assisted a lot, for about 8 years.
IP: I notice a strong theme of bright colour and eclectic patterns in many of your images. How would you consider your photographic style?
SAG: I don't know if you could call it a style, but I’m definitely obsessed with funky interiors. I also love fake or staged images but with a natural feel to it, it creates a weirdness that I like, so maybe my style is funky or weird....

Ok. Enough quotes. Let's make ourselves an opinion.
the line between the reader and writer has blurred - and so have the distinction among tweet, blog post, facebook, newspaper story, magazine article, book, the line between professionals and amateurs, the boundaries delineating for-profit, public, and non-profit media, the line between old media and new media - practically beyond recognition.

We focus most on singularity, significant individual works and exhibitions, provocative ideas, and biographical material. We believe an artist's work should intersect with today’s most relevant issues and concerns.

And of course we want to be there first.
