Joy Fennel, Angella N., Reginald Drummer and I shot my super amazing friend, cat/housesitter and fellow hood rat Laurel Stovall @ NY Models last week. The stills go along with the video piece linked to a few posts below. We all heart Laurel, especially because she alerted me to the existence of tasty lime/raspberry bubbly water and she helps me deal with all our kittens and helps wash up after dinner times. Phew. Yay Laurel! Look for the story out in November in any newsagent.

This story, from the current issue of Dazed and Confused, goes overboard with the blood even for me, but the above image is gorgeous. Shot by Matt Irwin and styled by Robbie Spencer, the whole story gets a bit cheesy, but here the stripes, mask and case are all working together to make perfection. A+ guys.

In 2002, Ned Kahn worked with the staff of Technorama, the major science center in Switzerland, and their architects, Durig and Rami, to create a facade for the building which is composed of thousands of aluminum panels that move in the air currents and reveal the complex patterns of turbulence in the wind. So lovely.

Interesting short doc on David LaChapelle. My favorite quote has got to be "It's quite hard to look at a lot of them [the images]... and if there is one problem with his work, that's it."
I would say that's kind of a big problem, but hey... whatever. I also like the lady that is obsessed with her beautiful silver spray paint.

I am always a fan when people make words really big and put them on things. I find that it is a very effective technique for making important seeming work, kind of like making a photograph all red or really really big. Of course, it helps if the text is resonant and/or smart in some way. Anyhow, I am really feeling Jenny Holzer' projection work right now. Check out her site for lots, lots more. Good stuff. It kind of reminds me of Barbara Kruger, but you know, not really annoying and lame. She bugs me, Old Krugie. I never understood what all the fuss was about her.

Marella Agnelli, New York, December 1953.
Simone, sunglasses by Courrèges, Paris, February 1965.
From May 15th to September 6th, the International Center for Photography will feature an exhibit of fashion pictures by Richard Avedon, who was a staff photographer at The New Yorker from 1992 to 2004. Avedon is the bestest. Look at his work now.
