“Fish n’ Chapters” was shot on my Sony Cybershot in an area PetSmart store and a Barnes & Noble with my cousin Felina. I wanted to play with color and pattern in the background of the images, using the fish tanks, rows of dog food, and shelves of books to create contrast and texture. In my days as a sales clerk, I remember chasing people out of the stores where I worked (including this very PetSmart) for taking photos in the store, but no one seemed to notice or care that we were shooting, which I think is a testament to how documented our lives are today and how common it is to take pictures on our phones in nearly any environment.
