“Sometimes I believe that this project came out of pure luck. I remember I only had access to the camera that I wanted to shoot this with on a Thursday, and that day I went to Juarez, and look for a fire breather and Juarez is the town I grew up in, and I’ve seen fire breather sporadicly is not like you can find them every single day. So, it was kind of crazy for me to think that I was gonna go and find something and just shoot it.”
