What Just Happened explores the week in the life of a person through their photos, offering another way to tell a story.
Asked what subjects she likes to shoot, photographer Taylor Rainbolt replies, “I like getting weird.” We totally understand that! Rainbolt lives in Los Angeles now, but is originally from Las Vegas. Of her hometown she says, “There’s no creativity there, or really anything.” Her father got her a camera when she was in high school and after graduating early, she moved to LA at the age of 17, eventually enrolling at ArtCenter College of Design. Though she’s now really getting going with her professional photography career, she’s already shot for The Hundreds and Obey.
When we reached out to Rainbolt about doing an installment of What Just Happened, she had just decided to stop shooting photos on her phone and began carrying a digital point-and-shoot camera. The following set of images are an impressionistic, detail-oriented look at a week of hanging out on set while helping a clothing company rebrand, working out of Chinatown’s Slow Culture gallery as they prepped for a Albert Reyes show, taking late night visits to taco trucks, and appreciating her new Chevy Colorado.
