I took these photos for my installation at Selfridges in July. Each of these subjects perfectly captured summer in fresh splashes of color. Check out www.gillianhorsup.com to find spectacular bracelets, rings, and earrings like the ones Gillian is wearing above!
Ms. Hiraki moved to New York from Tokyo 40 years ago to work as a milliner, and she says “I love wearing hats because they can tell so much about you.”
She took the hat off and generously tried to give it to me, but I couldn’t bare to let her part with such a work of art. We’ll have to make a date to see her studio and archives… right?
I met Lubi while working at The New Museum and have had the wonderful opportunity to photograph her, in our shared hometown of San Diego, several times now. This is the second series from our shoot in Balboa Park. Lubi’s unique sense of personal style is artful and elegant. To learn more about this wonderful woman CLICK HERE.
