My dear friend Debra Rapoport and I took a walk through Central Park on the first warm day of Spring. She had just come from Yoga class and I asked her if she could repeat some poses for a few pictures. I hope to have even half of her energy and creative spirit when I’m 70.
When I was young I would spend hours with my grandmother watching old movies and drawing pictures of fancy older ladies. When I moved to New York, I saw my childhood drawings come to life on the city streets. The women I photograph are a reflection of everything my grandmother taught me about life and style. A few days ago I photographed this striking lady in the East Village. Isn’t she a wonderful inspiration for a new drawing?!!!
A few months ago, my dear friend Valentina asked if I would shoot an editorial for her gorgeous biannual hardcover magazine Grey. I have always admired her work and was thrilled to work with her on two shoots, featuring Linda Rodin and Jenny Hirschowitz. I’ll post some shots from Jenny’s shoot next week.

FYI—-Linda Rodin is also on The Coveteur today!!! You can find the feature HERE.
