LET’STANBUL 2011: Meet Payam Emrani

Name, Age, Country
Payam Emrani, 32, United States

What do you do?
If you find out, please let me know. The business card says photographer, so I guess that is what I do. Although, living in Los Angeles and trying to make a living out of this you do very little actually photography; you email, Facebook, twitter, etc. I do not really even consider myself a photographer. I am a digital artist. I use a camera to create art because I do not know how to draw. 

How would you describe your life?
You know when you were a kid and you said when I grow up Im going to . . .well that is how I describe my life. I am the stereotypical artist; I live in my own world. I am also a riddle, wrapped in an enigma, that contradicts himself.

What do you expect to find in Istanbul?
The meaning of life.  

What are you going to do at Let’stanbul?
I have to do something? I thought they just wanted me because I was pretty. Hmm…well lets leave it as a surprise, that should work.
