Today my friend Stuart (stuartwinecoffphotography.blogspot.com) invited me to help him out at a shoot at Sloane NYC (sloanenyc.blogspot.com), a stellar new clothing store you should totally check out if you live in New York City.
I mostly held a giant black umbrella and took photos of Stuart taking photos (of the beautiful Coline Jourdana), so here are a few shots from the day and a little video I made. When I really should have been doing homework.
But I mean, whatever.
p.s. please excuse the horrible things youtube does to photo quality…so unfortunate.
Yesterday I went to MOMA (the museum of modern art) with my photo class, and aside from a stellar Picasso show that I’m totally going back to visit, I kind of found a new love: William Kentridge.
His exhibition, Five Themes, was beyond fantastic. There were a ton of drawings and cartoons, and even a crazy puppet show — it was seriously so great.
If you live in New York City and haven’t already, I highly suggest you hit up MoMA for a little Kentridge time. If you don’t, I demand that you go to this link:
enter the site, and watch the video.
Here are some examples of Kentridge’s work.
So great, right?
Today, Emily and I went to the Highline in the Meatpacking district for some strolling and some essay writing. We then stumbled upon Mr. Brainwash‘s warehouse-style studio on 13th street, popped in, and took some snapshots.
The exhibit on display, Icons, features portraits of famous musicians (made out of broken records), designers, models, and general pop icons. It also boasts a giant (like, seriously giant) turn over can of pink paint, spray cans of generic products (Sunkist raisins anyone?), a real taxi in a giant Matchbox toy car box, and some figures made out of tires.
For real, it was super neat. We were totally stoked about it.
Enjoy our pointless shots!
