Photos by Todd Hido

During my decade in San Francisco I was lucky enough to meet some rather amazing photographers, but perhaps the most lucky meeting was with Todd Hido. When he contacted me years ago I already knew who he was because I hugely admired his work, so needless to say I was over-the-moon excited to be his subject for an afternoon. This photo shoot led to many more and a wonderful friendship was born of our mutual love for Twin Peaks, old books, and seedy wig shops. When Todd realized I was moving across the country he brought over his adorable daughter Audrey and let me dress her up in things from my wardrobe. These photos were quickly snapped on my windy, freezing rooftop and they will always be one of my favorite memories of those last few days before leaving.
And here are a few more photos Todd shot of me (on film) over the past few years...
