Mario Cacciottolo came to Los Angeles and took my photo for his "Someone Once Told Me," photography project. He has taken 700 photos of people holding hand-lettered signs quoting something someone once told the subject.
My quote was something my grandmother told me when I was very young. Her parents were killed in Russia during the revolution and she had to forage in the forest for a while. She developed a fear of snakes there, probably Vipera berus.
The photos and signs are a lot of fun to browse through.
