In the meantime, we can verify that indeed, street, skate and fashion photpgrapher Ari Marcopoulos has shot some of the imagery for Jay's album.

Her most current photography projects, "In-Rooms" and "The Hotel Haunting," utilize the confined and often anonymous space of a room to spotlight the emotional and surreal aspects of the human experience. Growing up, Markert had a fascination with abandoned buildings and hotel rooms, intrigued by the mysterious histories and various characters that had once occupied them.
