I had been trying to photograph Christina for almost a year since the first time we worked together. We made a plan to shoot at this abandoned city barn that snow plows were kept in, but upon arriving the area had been fenced off and we weren't really into getting arrested. We then went to Plan B, an empty hotel with red curtains....we were kicked out by a security guard. So feeling dejected and not knowing what to do, we came upon the Chinese Lantern Festival at the Ohio fairgrounds. We got in for free just by asking, and we tried to make something out of nothing. I'm really happy with how some of the photos came out!
