Things I found while surfing the internet this week.
Numero Uno: Marvin Newman’s photo archive, now being sold in a limited edition Taschen commemorative book. His images range from nostalgic to haunting to mysterious. Well worth a look, I sure wish I could afford that $450 book.
Numero Dos: Mike Mandel started taking pictures of people in cars beginning in the early 70s. I think people see cars as being an area of privacy, even if the windows are see through. Having someone photograph you in what was perceived to be a private environment garners many reactions from the subjects. The photos are visceral, instinctual, and lively.
Numero Tres: A look back at Loulou de la Falaise and her life and style. The icon and friend of Yves Saint Laurent would have been 69 this year.
Numero Cuatro: Although Helmut lang retired years ago, his early work continues to be relevant in today’s fashion industry. With so much of today’s trends hinging on the 90s (mom jeans, flowered sundresses, flannels galore), Helmut’s SS92 collection is just as important today as it was 25 years ago.
Numero Cinco: IN 2002 Chris Moriarty was asked to photograph an up and coming singer/songwriter in London. Then 19, that singer/songwriter was Amy Winehouse. These photos present a confident and unaffected Winehouse, before the trouble began.
