Paris & Polaroids

Someone once told me an Art Director at an ad agency convinced the client they had to photograph their ad campaign in Paris because it had the best light in the world. To me, he was right. In the day it is soft and forgiving and at night it glows as if it were wearing the crown jewels. Irving Penn: “The light was the light of Paris as I had imagined it, soft but defining.” It’s no wonder than Paris has been the stage to such great photographers as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Man Ray, Brassai, Robert Doisneau, Eugene Atget, Richard Avedon among countless others I admire and learn from.

Awakened with a kiss

“This sculpture by Antonio Canova recreates the moment at which Psyche awakens from her deathly sleep by the kiss of Eros. The dynamic sculpture conveys a deep sense of love, passion and energy as Eros sweeps from the sky to awaken Psyche from her slumber. Psyche throws up her arms elegantly to receive Eros’ kiss .”
