Memories of Paris

We have started a tradition of traveling to Paris in the fall. It’s my favorite time to be there. The saturation of colors, the excitement of light layering and new autumn jackets, the light of the day is still long and the temperature is perfect for endless walks. This time in Paris we were guests of Ralph Lauren, to bring light to the new renovation project at the L’École des Beaux-Arts, experience “An American in Paris” and celebrate with a gala as sparkling as the Eiffel tower at night… but the other nights we sat at Pont Neuf and drank wine while watching the sun set, we walked the cobbled streets to film the city as she is today - still so timeless and beautiful -, we picked up treasures for our new studio at the flea market, and we had many amazing meals with friends we have made, friends who call this place home and open their life to us so that we can dream the dreams of Paris….

we are safe to

tell our story here.

(for a week spent floating in Paris,

every year.)

structure,

she has structure,

tough as any skyscraper

though no building here

is more than a few stories.

she has lore. 

she has a spirit

thousand of years in the making,

has a romance older than anyone’s memory,

anyone’s happy, lifelong marriage.

she has courage – our word that comes

from “coeur”, from heart.

she has dozens of parts,

arrondisements that speak to one another,

making something like a whole.

she has words

to spare.

she has

our complete trust.

NEW YORK.

New York, NY Autumn 2012 / All images shot on 35mm tri-x 400 film 

I love New York. We all do. After Sandy hit I went for a walk to see the bruises it left on our city. It is not in my nature to photograph things in pain — this post is not about that. In our life here I always carry a simple film camera around with me as a way to capture the beauty of our city in small fleeting moments as I run to meetings or kill time on photo shoots. These are images from the past few months the way she was… the way she will be again.

Memories of London

Epic walks through London’s windy streets, watching the people and pace of life pass by with just an old film camera and a pair of penny loafers… London, come rain or come shine~
