On the Street & Inside Colette, Paris

3114book3678web1

I know it seems weird that so many of the Paris shots are taken around Colette.

 

I swear I walk all over but the truth is that Colette is still the top fashion attraction in the city.

 

EVERYONE goes there.  Theres not really a single shop like that anywhere in the world.

 

There are lots of great shops ( 10 Corso Como, Opening Ceremony, Dover Street) but most focus on a specific group.

 

Colette somehow cuts across so many groups, similar to what I hear about Studio 54 in its time.

Henri Cartier-Bresson, Centre Pompidou, Paris

Henri Cartier-Bresson’s genius for composition, situational intelligence or dexterity to seize the right moment, coined and defined the principle “decisive moment”  

 

 

A decade after his death in 2004, Centre Pompidou celebrates his work and his life in their latest exhibition running till 9, June 2014 in Paris.

 

 

Clément Chéroux, the curator of photographs at the Centre Pompidou, took up the monumental challenge of assembling 500 artefacts including number of painting, family portraits, drawings all showing the creative process of this street photographer and his journey leading to the co-founding of Magnum in 1947 and snippets of the very private individual behind this surrealist and avant-garde photographer.

 

 

We can see our world through his lens during times of the Roaring Twenties, Colonial Africa, two World wars, American boom, Hippies of 70’s- all in black and white. The exhibition is the story of the 20th century, narrated through the masterwork of a legend.

 

 

If you can’t make the exhibit the DVD is almost like being there!

February 12, 2014 – June 9, 2014

David Bailey: Four beats to a bar and no cheating

This is a great DVD about a great photographer.  The Bruce Weber segment is particularly good.

 

These Arte Edition DVDs are so good but I wish they were more easily available on iTunes.

 

I bought this at Colette in Paris.  Maybe it’s available on the Colette website?

 

ps. if you have a chance catch the David Bailey Stardust exhibit in London till June 1st, 2014

Bill Cunningham: Facades at New York Historical Society

I found this book about a year ago at BOOKMARC in the West Village.  It was kind of expensive but it was the one and only time I’ve ever seen it.

 

Notice that it was published by Penguin! My publisher! They seem to have a thing for street photographers.

Guess what, now this book is the basis of an exhibit in New York.  Below is the official information.

In 1968 Bill Cunningham embarked on an 8-year photography project to capture the story of Periodic fashion with New York’s historic architecture and aptly named this project “Facades”.

In 1978 “Facades” was published as book, and 4 decades later is now a beautiful exhibition at the New-York Historical Society running through June 15.

‘Bill Cunningham: Facades’ is a collaborative work between Ms.Editta Sherman’s collection of well-archived vintage clothes as Mr. Cunningham photographed her on the streets in New York, ensuring the clothes relate the locations exemplifying the period, ranging from the late 18th century to the 1950s.

Mr. Cunningham donated most of the 88 gelatin silver prints to the New-York Historical Society when the book was completed, which can now be seen at the exhibition.

A must see if you love New York, Fashion, Architecture or Photography…or all!

Marianne Sin-Pfaltzer – Sardegna Paesaggi Umani

This book and the images taken by Marianne Sin-Pfaltzer literally took my breath.

 

I love this shot so much, it’s the kind I want to own as a print.  It would remind me why I go out to shoot everyday.

 

I’d love to tell you more about her but the book is written in Italian :(

My New Obsession….Turn of the Century Italian Photos Cards

Could these be more beautiful?

 

I bought a stack on these, all different sizes and from different studios, from the flea market in Milan.

 

Apparently, studios across Italy would glue the images on extra thick card stock (suitable for display but cheaper than framing?) and cover the back in grand self-promotuion.

 

These must’ve meant so much to the people that gave and received them.  They really make me dream AND make me want to figure out how to do these today!

 

I’ll be posting more of these over the next few weeks.

On the Street…..Ave. Winston Churchill, Paris

This look perfectly captures the struggle between Spring and Winter that we find ourselves in this time of year.

 

In much of Europe ,and some of the U.S.,  it is cool in the morning and evening but warm-ish in the afternoon.  It was in the high 60′s the other day here in New York, then back to an absolute ice box the next day.

 

Don’t you agree that , like it or not, an outfit like this (it’s mix of colors, textures, fabric weight and patterns) is sooo much more interesting to look at and consider than another all-black-monk-drab that fashion people wrap themselves in?

I love the idea of a spongy shearling flight jacket with a messy of curly hair.

 

By next October my hair will be that big and curly but I can’t imagine ever actually wearing a shearling coat myself, personally.

 

There are some items (shearling flight jackets, motorcycle jackets, leather jackets in general) that I love to see on other people but just can’t wear myself.

From My Seat in the Coffee Shop…..Delancey Street, New York

It’s so good to be back in New York.  I can’t wait to start shooting on the streets here and begin reviewing what I saw in Europe during the shows.

 

Everything goes by so fast during fashion month it’s important to now take a step back and try to reconcile what’s happening in the streets, on the runways and in the shops.

The Edition Hotel, London

The beginning of fashion week /month, is never easy, but luckily mine started in the Edition Hotel in London which has become my go-to studio/bedroom over the past year whenever I’m in London.

I’m not much of a party guy — I’m a bit lazy after 7 pm. Fortunately, the lobby and restaurant of the Edition Hotel is one of the most hopping spots of all London during fashion week. It makes my dream of  partying in my pajamas a potential reality.
