my latest purchase. the new york school photographs 1936-1963. its got nyc street images, from a few photographers who are well known for styles other than what is shown in the book. each photographer was allowed to print 12 images on one of four kinds of paper. i feel lucky to own it.
i normally look through all of my william eggelston's, but tonight i chose 2 1/4. which was a special present from japan.i heart him.
don't know if this is mine or wilkins', but i will steal if we divorce, juergen teller's do you know what i mean. anna may put me on to juergen back in the day. i love everything about him, but am seriously jealous of him. isn't that the way.
random, yet amaze is clement cooper's presence. i got this for gibbs while seeing the black style show at the v+a in london. there was something in the church images i thought he'd appreciate. i figured since it was 10 pounds i needed one as well. the book is comprised of people from manchester and the role the pub and church played in their lives.
next up is bruce davidson's subway. can't remember where i got this one. but it was awhile ago. i've always been into bruce because he took it there. to follow a subject for years and get close enough to document without your subject being aware, is such a rare talent.
and my guilty pleasure is ben watts' big up! i don't know if its because a few friends are in it, or if it just symoblizes a time when i had no hate for photography. when i simply idolized it and everyone who was a part of it.

seeing people from nyc out for dash's opening was refreshing. taking drugs by accident not so refreshing. i also learned a few interesting facts. for instance, 40 hustlers came on the large print in the main room the night before, paul mittleman went to hs in miami, and i can fit mad art books in my white purse. go figure!
met chris for some breakfast and got to hand deliver soloman's new watch. wilkins knew he'd love it, he can shine the likeness of spiderman anywhere he wants, most likely in his little brothers face. he also showed off his new "big boy" sweatshirt.

kinda bummed i will miss a few days of the Swerve Festival since i will be on a aeroplane. but check it..looks like there will be tons to see and do. like seeing the unfinished beautiful losers movie by sir aaron rose, and art by some cool kids such as misha hollenbach (p.a.m fame), terry richardson, todd james, your mama. . . www.swervefest.com
-you have the right to wear boots-not the fugly ugg-ly ones
-scarves and jackets are back.
-house parties are bearable and jumping.
-art openings are in full effect.
checked this and loved what i saw, i guess so did everyone else who has big pockets because the show was sold out. i got to see the olsen twins up close and personal-kinda scary. i think they thought they knew me, they sauntered, stared and growled. i believe the show is up for a bit. i'd check it if i were you. there is a def mood switch between the lower and top levels of the gallery.

i met ethan, now known as babydayliner, in '87. he was made of all the good shit. sweet cheek bones, sincere laughter and good style. he had the urban skater boy thing going for him. think massive starter jackets, skinny jeans and vans. a few years ago a friend took me to see him in concert. i flipped out. i've been trying to convert anyone who'll listen to being a babydayliner fan. he is quite amaze.check him out...babydayliner.com.your inner smart sensitive gene will thank you.

surprised i was kinda feeling: rachael roy, chris benz, heatherette.
i actually care more about the personal style that was captured in and around the shows. i am a true fan of the extreme and so cute you could puke looks. here are some from the satorialist.
