I teamed up with the fabulous Bettie Pardee of Private Newport again; this time to write a story for Town & Country. Even better, the story was about me. My favorite subject. Kidding. Kind of.... Anyway, much like with @A.Social.Life, my family and I put ourselves center stage to show off our lives, celebrate our history and talk about how we like to entertain.

My mother and I had a photo show in Palm Beach. Did I mention she's a bad ass photographer in her own right? Victoria Mele, go check here out. She does large scale prints of flowers close up. Anyway, we had a show at EMKO in Palm Beach. Remember them? I did a fashion shoot there awhile back. Man, I keep going of on these side tangents.... One more time from the beginning. My mom and I had a photography show and it went awesome. Lots of people showed up, we sold a ton of work and both the Palm Beach Daily News and The Palm Beach Post wrote stories on it! Cool, right?
I did a photo shoot with famed Opera star Diana Damrau for the the clothing store Escada and Town & Country online. It was a lot fun and I thought I'd share. Check out the full story here:
This past Sunday, July 19th The New York Times had a one page article in its Sunday style mag - T Magazine - about me. All about me! Ok, that's a lie. But it did prominently feature my photo series on kitchens in Newport, RI. The general gist of the photos (and I presume the article - I only looked at my pictures) is that the grand houses in Newport still contain kitchens that haven't been renovated for modern use. They are functional. They are used to cook food for house guests, not to show off. Its interesting. Trust me. Go check it out at: T Summer Entertainment Issueissuu.com or just look below (I make this too easy for you)
Below are the images on their own. They are just four from a much larger series that I did with the wonderful interior designer Ruthie Sommers (Check her out - she's awesome). Hopefully we will find somewhere to print the whole thing. I'll keep you posted.
My cover story for Quest Magazine, on stands now. Newport has long been a focus of my photography and I'm glad to finally have some of my favorite shots published. In many ways, the town is the last surviving bastion of old money style and manners. Check it out online here:
Check out my photos (with words by Sam Bolton) in this month's (December 2013) Manhattan Magazine. The piece focuses on some of the new guard in NYC's art world. If you're too lazy to go to your local newsstand, I suppose you may check out the online version (or just look at the jpegs I'm posting here…man i'm making this too easy). Fun fact for the reader, this story was originally shot for Barton G.'s Vault Magazine out of Miami, before the illustrious publication folded after just one issue. Their loss is Manhattan Magazine's gain I suppose….
