A few years ago, Willhide had to face one of photographers’ worst nightmares. Having your laptop and backup drive stolen. She realized there was a good chance of her never getting her equipment back. Though a few days later, after all hope seemed lost; she got a call from the local authorities informing her that they found her laptop and backup drive had been stolen. The data was wiped and she was only able to salvage a few distorted photographs. But she was actually happy with the distortions. And so she decided to publish the photographs in an album named after her laptop thief, Adrian Rodriquez.
