Independent Spirit Photo Contest

So, watching television, sometimes, has its virtues.  I learned watching the IFC channel, they’re hosting a photography contest.  It is called the Independent Spirit Photo Contest.  There are three categories: people, places, and everything else; and four judges.  Each judge hails from a magazine, two are photography magazines, PDN, and JPG, and one from Paper […]

Film for Fashion

Coco Before Chanel starring Audrey Tautou (Amelie) and directed by Anne Fontaine, another lady director (!), is coming out September 25, 2009 in New York and L.A.  This film focuses on the fashion icon before she became the perfume bottle that nearly every grandmother in America has on her dressing table.  Before she made Audrey Hepburn so […]
