I met Marissa via Tumblr (RIP), which for years and years was the home of many amazing art communities. There’s no doubt that some of my favorite artists were people whose work I followed there, and their talents completely shaped my own interests and inspirations for a long time.

Marissa is just one of the incredible humans I know because of that temporary corner of the internet. The first place she brought me to shoot was this big abandoned structure covered in graffiti. She thought it might be a neat place to take pictures together. She undersold it.
