WATCH: Gia Coppola on creative influences, familial advice and the art of restraint.

Spend five minutes on a couch with American film director and photographer Gia Coppola, for a creative conversation that meanders through the influences and process behind her 'Trinkets and Fragments' photography series.

Film direction and edit: Aimee Hoffman
Gia Coppola is a creative chameleon, lending her eye to a vast array of creative projects and collaborations, from features films, commercial campaigns and personal photography projects.
In the lead up to the exhibition of her photographic works at A Semi Permanent Hotel, we joined Coppola at her home to chat about her creative process.
"What is the theme of the photos? I think I just naturally gravitate towards taking pictures of little still lifes, and little trinkets and fragments of my life. I studied with Stephen Shore so I feel like a lot of my work is a kind of ode to him and his style."
The exhibition, 'Trinkets and Fragments,' worked with the interior architecture of Paramount House Hotel, with the works mounted in the most unexpected of places.
