In Episode 383: A Trucker's Bigfoot Property, we are joined by Dylin who has had creatures on his property since he was a child. The land he lived on was passed down through his family for generations, and what lived in the woods was not spoken about until there was a reason to speak of them. Dylin recalls three separate occasions in his childhood where a bigfoot made itself known, but despite three encounters, Dylin still didn't realize that there was something unique about this property. He even says that he thought he just had a gorilla living on the land in Louisiana! It wasn't until Dylin was an adult that he locked eyes with something, and understood what was really happening there – and then all the memories from his childhood flashed before his eyes and started making sense.

Dante dove into developing his skills, studying at the International Center of Photography. Though he does commercial work digitally, Dante prefers shooting personal projects on film. He's exhibited in New York as well as Baltimore and is new local, New Orleans. He is also a co-contributor along with fellow Brooklyn-bred photographer, Phillip Moi-Thuk-Shung (http://phillipshung.com) to Inferno, a forthcoming book of photo essays.
