It began with globes. Then it was maps. Then it was antique collectibles from the World’s Fair, and from there it was just about anything they could get their hands on. All my life, my parents have been collectors, amassing everything from a golf course windmill, to “Buildings of Disaster,” to bank giveaways from the midcentury, to folk art from around the world. Today, my Dad’s office is a shrine to a life spent collecting – a personal museum fit for a museum designer.
All credit for this post is due to James Wilson, also known as Mr. Secret Forts because his Out/About/Here/There cel phone image roundups have always been some of my favorite posts out there (no pun intended), and quite frankly I always wanted to rip the idea off. So, I decided to gather about six months worth of photos off of my phone (until half a year ago my phone camera was broken so I could barely even take a photo), many of which have already popped up on my instagram, but I figured I should put them all in one place, for the sake of posterity. Enjoy.
I finally got my film processed from New York Fashion Week, so here are my photos from the inside last week.
This past Monday, in advance of this year’s (capsule) trade show, I had the pleasure of joining my good friends photographer Liam Goslett and stylist James Jean down at Basketball City to shoot the Capturing Capsule look book. As brands arrived and unpacked, James and Liam, along with models Patrick Rood and Patrick Dery, braved the cold to create a series of looks inspired by the work of photographer Gavin Watson, using some of the best pieces from the scores of brands that showed at (capsule) this season. Thanks to an incredibly gracious offer by Liam, I was on hand to capture B-roll of the shoot and so here’s a look behind the scenes of Capturing Capsule.
The last few weeks of fall normalcy were abruptly disrupted this past by Hurricane Sandy, which quickly propelled us into full on winter. This represents a month’s worth of diners and art galleries, floods and order, silence and sirens, darkness and brilliance. Fake fall, fast winter.
End of Summer. Early Fall. New York. Vegas. New York again. Leftovers. Keepers. Ephemera and Memories.
