Portable: Who are some of your influences?

Jeff Yiu: My influences often come from music, films and my friends. [Some of] my favorite bands are Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, Joy Division and Sonic Youth, [and some] favorite films are The Matrix, Dark City and Downton 81. I started taking pictures of my friends in various bands after my trip around Europe. It was just pictures of them playing various shows before I started to do portraits for them. I thought of the pictures as an extension of my memory and if they can use the pictures to grow their band, then that would be great too.
