Thanks Who What Wear!

11 . 03 . 12

I am sure some of you are totally sick of me posting about my book but your first book is only published once so I hope you will allow me some leeway. Especially because I was beyond excited to learn that Katherine Power and Hillary Kerr of Who What Wear not only loved Creativity at […]

Wherever you go…

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” – Confucious Photo taken in Washington Mews by moi.

By George

05 . 30 . 12

I’ve seen the photo of The Divers above dozens of times yet didn’t realize the photographer was George Hoyningen-Huene until recently.  He was born in Russia in 1900 and during the Russian Revolution fled to London and later Paris.  He worked as a photographer and eventually became chief of photography at French Vogue.  In 1931, he […]

The Big Picture

05 . 25 . 12

It sounds like as many people are staying in town this holiday weekend as they are headed to The Hamptons. If you are in New York and looking for something to do on Saturday, you might want to check out The Big Picture Photography Education Fair in Times Square.  JP Teaches Photo and cityHUNT will join together […]

Unplugged

03 . 02 . 12

When I spoke on the panel at the Americas Mart in Atlanta in January, I was asked what trends I was seeing online.  I answered that I was noticing that more and more people were taking time to unplug.  I definitely saw some people roll their eyes and scoff at my observation.  Last night at […]

Sometimes I wish we could discuss artists or anyone for that matter without having to mention their gender. In the case of photographer Cindy Sherman, being a woman is an integral part of her work and therefore, cannot be ignored. Just opened at The Museum of Modern Art is a new exhibit, Cindy Sherman, which […]

Molto Mario

02 . 28 . 12

I love the opportunity to peek into the homes of people whom I admire.  As my photography hobby becomes more important in my life, I am always looking at the work of others as inspiration.  Mario Testino is a photographer who is not only talented but seems to really enjoy himself as witnessed in The […]

What surprised me about visiting the Château de Versailles was the openness.  Windows and doors welcomed in the warm September air and it wasn’t at all as closed off as many American monuments would be. This is even more amazing after you realize how much restoration all of the buildings have seen over the years.  Robert […]

Magnificent Met Museum

07 . 27 . 11

In order to start photographing my book, I first had to upgrade my camera.  After appealing to the powers that be at Canon for a discount, to no avail, I plunked down a boatload of money for the Canon EOS 5D Mark II.  As I joked on Twitter, learning to use this camera was like […]

There is no better way to escape the dreary weather than to head to a museum or gallery.  I can’t wait to visit the Stanley Wise Gallery soon to see the fabulous photographs of Arthur Elgort on display.  They range from the beginning of his career in 1970 to 2010.  Elgort has shot for some […]

The New York Times Style photographer Bill Cunningham is a living legend.  Seeing him on the street or at fashion shows will never cease to excite the fashion flock.  He once took my picture on Fifth Avenue and even though it never made it into the paper, it was still a thrilling moment.   He reminds […]

There are so many wonderful events coming up in Paris this fall including Avedon: Photographs from The Richard Avedon Foundation sale at Christie’s November 20, 2010.  Over 60 Avedon iconic photographs as well as several unique and extremely rare items will be up for sale.  Proceeds from the sale will initiate The Richard Avedon Foundation’s […]

Photographer François Halard recently had an exhibition which was compiled into an accompanying book entitled Visite Privée.   The collection of photographs of artists and their studios include Cy Twombly, Julian Schnabel, Carlos Mollino, Ahn Duong, Richard Avedon, Paul Cezanne, Robert Rauschenberg, and others.  My favorite space is of course Mr. Hallard’s own home in Arles, France.  […]

Icons by an Icon

04 . 28 . 10

I love how in New York the art isn’t always confined to the museums and galleries. Tod’s commissioned the famed photographer Elliott Erwitt to shoot 22 prominent families for its new exhibition called Icons by an Icon. It’s also another example of what I like to call stealth marketing. Each photo contains a pair of […]

I don’t normally like to visit museums on bright and sunny days but I may make an exception for the new Henri Cartier-Bresson exhibition that opens today at the Museum of Modern Art. Over 300 hundred photographs that span his amazing career will be on view until June 28, 2010. My favorites are his old […]

The World in Vogue: People, Parties, Places by Hamish Bowles and Alexandra Kotur is another book that is going on my Christmas list, unless Knopf would like to send me a copy. Hint hint. I had a chance to look through it this week and it’s chock full of socialites, celebrities, fashion designers, models and […]

A Shadow Falls

11 . 08 . 09

It’s no secret that I am dying to go on an African safari but until I get there, I’m going to continue to gaze longingly at Nick Brandt‘s stunningly beautiful black and white photographs that I saw today on Luxury Culture. They are on exhibit at A.galerie in Paris until 24 December 2009 and are […]
