Leticia Jimenez, also known as Spiderbrain on Instagram, is an 18 year old photographer from the San Fernando Valley. Capturing her models with a strong, modern, and sometimes dark energy, Leticia has been quickly gaining the attention of the masses. Still a teenager, her hard work and dedication to photography is present in every image she takes. The first time I stumbled across her account I was completely awe-struck at the array of brooding and colorful photographs displayed across my screen, and knew in that moment that it wouldn’t be long until we saw this girl photographing some of the biggest names today.
“I’ve always had a deep love and curiosity for cinema and photography. I started taking photos January of last year at local valley shows, and from there I as an artist started growing. I stopped taking photos at shows and started focusing on the individuals who make up the scenes, and through that I started meeting and collaborating with a lot of young creates that inspire me.
I feel like there is such a beautiful connection with the model and photographer through the lens. I’ve never felt this much love for something; it’s amazing. I will not stop taking photos. I can’t really describe my style, I just know when I’m with the model I absorb their energy and try to translate that in the picture, then with my editing I make it my own. It’s a very collaborative process.”
