8 Questions for Jimi Sweet
Coolest place you have ever been?
If I were to plan a honeymoon, I’d be torn between Venice and Rome, Paris, and Saigon.
If I was a genie and could give you your dream job, what and where would it be?
I think I am pretty close right now. I feel like a shorter, fatter, Asian-er Liz Lemon, which was secretly my goal all along. I really enjoy the photography that I do, and when I’m not shooting I manage a small photo studio and consult quite a number of other photographers. If you were a genie, however, I’d ask for a few more studios to manage and maybe some higher ceilings.
If there was a movie produced about your life, who would play you and why?
Probably that Asian guy from the new Star Trek movies. I’d say “the Asian guy from Harold & Kumar,” but I think they were both Asian.
If we came to your house for dinner, what would you prepare for us?
If by “prepare,” you mean “order,” then I’d “prepare” something really nice from FreshDirect. They do awesome catering.
If you could be any superhero, which one would you be?
Superman has some really cool tricks. But Batman definitely has the gadgets.
Last live concert you went to?
I photographed a really great concert for Local Vibes, and I was really impressed with their lineup, particularly Fifth Nation and Pants Velour. I have a huge crush on Jordan Battiste. I hope he sees this!
Using a scale of 1 to 10, rate yourself on how weird you are.
I’m a strong 7.
What do you think about when you are alone in your car?
I would think, “how the hell did I get a car? Do I have to move this tomorrow morning?”
