courtney love

some say sex sells but seriously folks, i've had an all-out scurry of praise for this shot of courtney love ever since posting it on my blog last night. not only does it accompany my review of the annenberg photography space opening for V magazine (check it HERE) but one of my favorite new titles, LOVE magazine requested permission to use it on their blog (check it HERE ). its official: courtney love helps you get ahead in your career kids!

shel'tter street style project

i just shot this LA street style series for japanese magazine 'shel'tter' which arrived on my doorstep today and i'm super happy with it. thanks to all of the ladies (jeskimo, heather, maya, jenny, ashleyn, imee, micaela) who helped to star in this tribute to LA style via my lumix lens.

l'age d'or

living in a place like los angeles makes me all the more fascinated by the effects of aging and the ways in which the majority of women quite simply cannot deal with it here. then again, maybe living in beverly hills i'm subjected to it moreso than any other place on earth. either way, i wouldn't mind pasting this image around the 90210 area just to see the reactions of residents...

four favorites from the soon-to-be-open annenberg space for photography

judy garland by douglas kirkland...

jackson pollock by greg gorman...

brigitte bardot by douglas kirkland...

bette davis by greg gorman...

looking forward to this one...

only in beverly hills, baby

delinlee hearts betty freeman

my review of the soon-to-be-auctioned betty freeman collection of flavin's, lichtenstein's, warhol's and more was just posted on the V magazine site. check it here.

all hail david segal

the mind boggles at a certain man who answers to the name larry gagosian. all hail new york times writer david segal who recently penned this must-read portrayal of the art world maestro most consider to be a shark. as if that isn't intriguing enough, how about my favorite quote from the article (supposedly coming from gagosian himself): "if you want that francis bacon you need to give me your lichtenstein and the two basquiats.”

delinlee hearts glamour?

i'll confess i've never purchased an issue of glamour magazine in my life but that might just be about to change following the news of a new feature project in their latest issue spotlighting the definition of 'glamour' according to ten top female artists (a recurring theme of late, see colette x lomo posting below). my favorites: marilyn minter's "chewing pink" crystallized sugar lips and mickalene thomas' rhinestone-encrusted portrait titled "meet qusuquzah."
