Why Her? Why Her? Oh I know, because she's rad. So excited to have a new set with my friend friend Melissa aka Why Her. Why is a rad model but she's also a dope street artist. I first met Why through another Graff friend Kym of CBS Crew fame. Kym asked me to come shoot her, Deity, and Why in Venice working on a Sailor Moon Wall. The second I saw Why I knew I wanted to photograph her. When I approached Why about it she loved the photos from the paint sesh so much and told me she had been encouraged a lot by friends and family to get in to modeling. Our first shoot went so well we really sparked a dope friendship and continued to shoot together. Why is a very a busy lady with her art, work, life, etc. It can be hard to nail down time to shoot together so when we got around to this new shoot it had probably been about a year since our last shoot.
Why grew up in the South/Westside of LA and always knows some dope spots so she took me around to some places I had been but never photographed anyone including Playa Vista, Kenneth Hahn Park, and the jetty at Playa Del Rey. As always we had a great time together and I hope it isn't another year again before we shoot together once more. Why is one of my favorite models because everything she does is very subtle but elicits a definite mood. Enjoy!
