Jipsy, otherwise known as Nefarious Girl, began documenting the world around her as a child on her trusty Fred Flinstone camera. Since then, she's taken thousands of photos of Miami's club and bar scenes and produced a huge, unique, and valuable body of memories.
Her love of the craft is apparent. "I think it's kind of magical, you stop and freeze the moment," she said. This Miami-based photojournalist wants it to be clear though that she doesn't consider herself an artist. She is, however, a successful photographer whose keen eye, candid photos, and huge archives have influenced a new generation of Miami photographers.
