Who Am I ?


Winter 2012-2013

1: Who am I?

Danny Roche.

2: What do you do and what project are you currently working on?

I am a fashion photographer in NYC. I started becoming serious about photography about a year ago and I just started shooting models from agencies. Right now I am experimenting and looking for ways to constantly evolve with my work. I am currently working on a collaboration with Florian Wowretzko.

3: Where are you from and where are you going?

I am from a town called Basking Ridge which is located in New Jersey. I would love to travel the world to see other places. The places that are on the top of my list are Paris, London, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, and Australia.

4: Who is your biggest hero?

I can’t say that I have a hero, but here are some artists I admire: Helmut Newton, Paolo Roversi, Caravaggio, Tim Walker, Nirrimi, and Ryan Mcginley (to name a few).

5: What book is your bible?

I can’t say I have a “bible” but I would have to say my favorite books are the books in the Griffin & Sabine Trilogy. I am also currently reading Just Kids by Patti Smith.

6: What are some things you love? And some things you hate?

Besides taking photos I currently love cooking, finding new places to explore, Game of Thrones, Slowdive, and the Cocteau Twins. Hate? I don’t really hate anything. If there is one thing that I strongly dislike it is conceited people.

7: What is your raison d’être?


8: What is your favorite color?

Right now my favorite color is burgundy.

9: Who is your favorite comic book superhero?

As a kid I always loved Spiderman!

10: What is your favorite NYC hot spot?

To eat, Cafe Gitane on Mott Street. To hangout I would have to say Le Bain; I love the waterbeds on the roof!

11: What turns you on?

When people are out there doing things. I like ambitious people – people who have the drive to want to do something creative in life. I also like the kind people of who are kind and genuine – someone who you can talk to for the first time and feel like you have been friends for a long time.

12: What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?

If time travel existed, what time period would you visit?
