Stole the bible and found god. Not true, but when I was in art school I got busted stealing a @redbull and some sushi from Whistler Mountain's cafeteria and got barred for 2 years. Somehow I still made it up the gondola without a pass, but that’s another story. I was broke in many ways but wanted to find some peace and quiet, so I went to the Chapters and stole this little yellow and red book called “Zen & The Art of Happiness”. I read it on the shitter everyday. A couple weeks later, after having a beer in the #darkroom, I went to Whole Foods with a buzz and stole some almonds and candied salmon. Two undercover security guards grabbed me on the way out. I was thrown in a holding cell at the cop station where they scared me pretty good, in a good way. They told me that my dreams of travelling as a #photographer would be crushed if I was ever caught again. That night In the cell was my first experience #meditating. I realized I sucked at stealing and never stole again. #UnapologeticApologies #WakeUp #film
"I've always been a person who cared to talk about the real shit, real life, real feelings… I want to get to the heart of a person. I want to feel the freedom of living my authentic self, and in doing that I want to liberate others to do the same. At the risk of sounding like this is some noble cause… it's more that. It is a cause that is very close to my heart, and because of that I think it. perhaps resonates with people." - Alexa Mazzarello Photography talking about her new baby, The Elephant Project.
