Jennifer Garza-Cuen got her start shooting slot champions, tourists and divorce parties at the motel casinos down route 40 in Reno, Nevada. Later she became a cocktail waitress at the Nugget, but perpetual dissatisfaction drove her on the road which landed her in Providence where she recently completed her MFA in Photography at the Rhode Island School of Design. Of her work she writes, ‘As someone who considers herself placeless, my process is that of a wanderer, a radicant (or Ivy like plant) actively enrooting myself in the specifics of each place as I move from one to another’. These images are from her series, ‘Reno’. Taken from Feature Shoot.
