It's been a crazy couple of weeks and honestly I say that all the time now so I guess it's just been a crazy life overall. Went to Coachella last weekend and cannot tell you how much fun I had just being away from work, blogging and New York for 6 days. The music was insane and for me the highlight was to see Florence and the Machine perform up close and live! I love that woman! You can check out some of my Coachella pictures on the DSM Facebook or twitter pages.
Finally got an opportunity to do a personal shoot and on a hunt for a cool location Ben and I were walking around the Bowery and stumbled upon The Hole art gallery which had an entire indoor French garden as an installation sponsored by Playboy.com with a pond and tiny fishes and willows and grass and the green bridge all inspired by Monet's estate. Artist E.V. Day was awarded the Munn Artists Residency to live on Monet's famous estate in Giverny and be inspired by the gardens that inspired Monet. She invited artist Kembra Pfahler to go along with her and create art. Kembra is an iconic performance artist who's art attire is basically her naked body painted in red, a huge wig and some stripper boots. E.V's work is best known for her refracted photography. The collaboration is insane and if you are in NY you must check it out at The Hole! Just to give you a glimpse here is a picture from the exhibition which was hung around the indoor garden that the gallery kindly allowed us to use as our shoot location.
