Laura Hinton worked as a folk singer in Las Vegas, Nevada; a planetarium show host in Reno; an archeological-shard cleaner in Tucson, Arizona, and she learned to take photographs at age 10 in Rapid City, South Dakota, using her mother’s vintage Kodak Brownie Reflex.

Megan Kaminski loves Totino’s Party Pizza.
