On the Street…Remembering Ruth Orkin, Florence

I know I’m a bit of an overly romantic dreamer, but I took the above photo, literally, right around the corner from where this famous Ruth Orkin was taken years ago in Florence.

My young heroine was watching a street concert but, as I was shooting her, I could imagine her leaving in the direction of Cafe Gilli (location of the Ruth Orkin photo) and right into that moment (except today that moment would comprise of very well dressed men from Pitti Uomo).

Garance & I

After seven wonderful years, Garance and I have decided to split.

 
We’ve shared so much of our creative life (and more) with you, our readers, that we thought it was right to let you know.

 

Our mutual respect and admiration for each other have left us still great friends.

Our time together profoundly changed both of our lives for the better and I deeply thank her for that experience.

 

It’s a difficult time but we are both doing ok.

 

I will close comments for this post if you don’t mind.

Do You Think She is Making A Statement?

Symbols of a nation or nationality are so tricky  when taken out of their usual context.  It’s so difficult to know where to draw the line and what may or may not offend other people. There’s a fine line between admiration and potential derision. For that reason I stay away from wearing anything that I consciously feel may offend (that includes fur).

 

This isn’t about making this young lady right or wrong but about questioning the feelings that it arose in me.

 

p.s. this was shot in a small bodega(?) in Florence in early June.
