From Ellyn Kail’s interview with Lissa Rivera for Feature Shoot:

In the beginning, Lissa Rivera says she and her partner BJ Lillis had “no money and no plans” for their portraits. They set up their photoshoots purely for the joy of it. Once, they went shopping at a discount fabric store on Flatbush Avenue in NYC, where they discovered a yellow polyester chiffon. Another time, BJ wore their Victoria’s Secret ‘Pink’ sweatpants for an impromptu session at home. “We were having fun with my crappy lens,” Rivera remembers. “It had terrible focus. Didn’t matter to us. Played dress-up all day in the kitchen on a warm Saturday afternoon.”
