Interview with Matthew Jessie, photographer based in Johnson City, Tennessee.
What’s the best thing to do when you live on a traveling carnival?
I think the best thing to do when you’re out on the midway is observe the crowds and get a feel for what the local people are like within each little pocket of America.

Tell us something about this image
Yeah definitely. I was with some friends who were looking for a graffiti spot and we ended up at an abandoned apartment complex where there were some old fire extinguishers laying around. My friend grabbed one and started spraying so i snapped a couple of shots with a disposable camera I had with me. Kind of a lame story hah
