I know what you’re thinking and no, it’s not a story about me getting wasted. This is just someone that I’ve kept to myself for the last year or so. I thought it is about time I share her wonderfully witty and incredible spot on commentary with you.
Rita Gomes or Wasted Rita is a writer and visual artist originally from Portugal, currently residing in New York. I discovered her work by doing some research about documentary-style profiles. I found Like Knows Like and then continued to rummage through every nook and cranny of their site, which of course lead me to this video. I think they make the most beautiful profiles. She describes herself as an ’emotional terrorist and agent provocateur’, either way, I find myself reading some of what she writes and I want to yell ‘Ditto!’.
I have thrown together a bunch of her work that I really love. There’s a ton more! I really think Wasted Rita’s work speaks for itself. I’m not going to bore you with an in-depth analysis. It is what it is. I’m sure a lot of people think but won’t necessarily say.
