Tiki Llanes Lopez's Interview


" All my life is a dream. I can't stop dreaming..."









Photographer and film director from Mexico, Tiki Llanes Lopez is 27 years old.
" I think the Art is not necessary plasming just the things in life that are negative or dramatic... I think it's all about passion in all kinds of feelings. You can move emotions to joy, caring and kindness. You can catch stories in the eyes of people, what they are thinking, we say.

Well, you can be creative and touch their souls and they thoughts. It doesn't matter if you don't know them, or how far they are.

We are all connected, and we can feel each other."
