Lissy and the forest

about Lissy Elle Laricchia

If a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it,
doesn’t it just lie there and rot?

Chuck Palahniuk

Lissy lived in a small town in Canada, between a cornfield and a tall forest, and frequently played pretend in between them. She moved to big and scary New York City at the age of 18 where she may not have a cornfield or a forest, but she still makes due in her imaginings.

Battle for the Kingdom

Her interest in photography started when she was just thirteen, and a friend of hers decided to tell her about this — then impossible sounding — project called 365, where she was expected to take a photo to represent every day of that year. So she took her first whirl at it, and although she failed spectacularly after about five months, from that failure bloomed a love that would take up most of her time for years to come.

“I live in Canada, where the moose are. I take pictures of anything that will stay still long enough. If you asked me if I would rather see one of the seven wonders or Las Vegas, I would always say Las Vegas. I admire Dr. Suess and Chuck Palahniuk more then you — sorry —, and you bet your ass I would sooner tear out my own eyes then spell Panic! At The Disco without the exclamation point.

Fight Your Demons

Delusions

She documents her journeys via her camera so that others may re-experience a part of their childhood that they thought they’d lost forever. She has a large online presence of over 100,000 followers. Her photos have appeared in fashion, photography, and literary magazines, on book and CD covers, in stores, and have inspired a music video. They have also been exhibited internationally.

Everything is a self-portrait. A diary. Your whole drug history’s in a strand of your hair. Your fingernails. The forensic details. The lining of your stomach is a document. The calluses on your hand tell all your secrets. Your teeth give you away. Your accent. The wrinkles around your mouth and eyes. Everything you do shows your hand
