Bill & I

Maybe the film raised our collective awareness or maybe Bill Cunningham is out and about more than ever. Either way two of my friends recently had encounters with Bill Cunningham and I saw him this morning at the Farmer's Market. Of course he was with his camera, astutely observing. I think he might have liked my hair, but otherwise I did not arrest his gaze ;)

If you have not see the above alluded to film, you can now catch Bill Cunningham New York on Netflix. It was also available free on Hulu , but unfortunately is no longer.

Gallery Hop This & That

Also on view currently is Walton Ford's latest show at Paul Kasmin Gallery in Chelsea.
Looking at new works by three of my favorite artists today (Simen Johan, Ryan McLennan & Walton Ford) I felt that all three were stretching or eager to stretch themselves. It is interesting to follow an artist over the years and see their process and evolution and perhaps even struggle.

We walked home on the Highline, which while very modern is really a great feat for New York. If you never saw the Highline before it was turned into a park, I recommend Joel Sternfeld's book Walking the High Line (with an essay by Adam Gopnik).
