James Lipton’s Top 10 Questions answered by Daniel Beltrá

As part of our 25 year gallery celebration and exhibition What I Was Thinking, we thought it would be great to ask a few photographers in the exhibition to answer James Lipton’s Top 10 Questions. Each week we will post a different photographer’s response to the list of questions. Here are Daniel Beltrá’s responses to James Lipton’s Top 10 Questions:
