Yesterday marked the final day of the exhibition Larry Clark’s Stuff at Milk Studios Gallery curated by Boo Hurray. The space was a bit homage to the life and work of the controversial Clark , best known for his filmmaking (Kids, Bully, Wassup Rockers) and voyeuristic photography. On display were an array of photos, movie posters, streetwear tees and decks by the likes of Fuct, Supreme, Toy Machine.

If you haven’t yet checked out Season 1 of Model Files you’ve missed some serious laughs. Everyone likes models and snarky humour (cept maybe Nazis) so definitely watch check out the VFILES YouTube channel with all the episodes.

I took some photos at the reunion show set a little while back and you can see those HERE.

Watch the episode below and witness familiar faces from the season and co-host P’Trique from “Shit Fashion Girls Say” fame do his thing.

If you live in New York you will definitely see famous people regularly but its truly rare to see a Victoria Secret Supermodel in the flesh and one of my all time-favorites at that. Ladies and gentlemen, Alessandra Ambrosio was at Milk Studios and so was I. Thank You Based God. Enjoy the eye candy.

Yesterday was the opening reception of “DREAM & DRIVE” at Milk Studios. The photo project and book has been nine years in the making ; the result of an on-going relationship between The Kills and Kenneth Cappello. I attended the Q&A session in the early afternoon and listened to Kenneth Cappello, Jamie Hince, Alison Mosshart give insights into the last nine years of touring, rock&roll and countless photos taken in between.

I’ve been a fan of Kenneth Cappellos work since I first came across him years ago and it was inspiring to hear him speak on the experience of photographing The Kills for almost a decade. I appreciate photographers who are able to impose their own personality onto their work and the photos at this exhibition showed that Kenneth did just that. It was apparent that the photodocumentation on display was shot from the lens of a dear friend, not an outsider, and sometimes that makes all the difference.

You can read an interview with Kenneth HERE and pre-order the book online HERE.
