Jeanne-Claude & Christo

Downtown has lost another icon. Sadly artist Jeanne-Claude passed away yesterday.
I loved her wild red hair and her epic love story with Christo (read more about that at Wikipedia). I can only imagine how incredibly difficult it must be for Christo, to have lost the love of his life & his collaborator of 51 years.
You can see documentation of their work at: www.christojeanneclaude.net; and find The Los Angeles' times obituary written by Dennis McLellan by clicking here.
Zoe Strauss posted a beautiful photograph of Jeanne-Claude & Christo taken by Bryan Obrien on her blog: www.zoestrauss.blogspot.com.
