I first met and photographed Zuanci Lemus about a month ago while shooting with David Flores for his new mural for The Special Olympics at The LA Coliseum. After taking just one photo with her I set out to do a full set with her. She was totally down and we met up a few weeks later in my hood of Highland Park. I had never really spent much time shooting in Highland Park so I decided it was time. We had a really rad shoot except we're both convinced that we were almost murdered.
Towards the end of the shoot we went down in to the Arroyo Seco Parkway (as pictured below). I mentioned to her this tunnel I had been in down there when I went location scouting for a new film I'm working on by Kathryn Lejeune. A sketchy guy walked near us as I told her this. We took our time getting there and took his photo as to let the guy go past. Moments after this photo Zee saw the guy pop out of the tunnel and we turned around, quickly exiting the Arroyo-Seco Parkway.
