Black and Blue
Here are three images I love from today. Two of them obviously go together, while the third, doesn’t in any explicit way.
anyhow, enjoy the photos! Hopefully I will be feeling better ASAP!
Blown away by these amazing paintings by Kim Cogan. Found them via a great website for inspiration with a weird name: Fecal Face Dot Com. Despite the gross sounding name this is a great resource to discover incredible art.
Kim Cogan’s paintings of New York City are at the same time realistic and ethereal. He seems to have a way of making seemingly banal subject matter seem precious.
This series is showing at Gallery Henoch in NYC beginning tonight! I wish I was there to see them in person.
The moment that my the boyfriend proposed to me, the only thing I was sure of (other than my groom) was who I wanted responsible for the most important part of that special day: the photos!
I met Tim at my very first real job after graduating from my masters. We were both suffering under a horrendously mean boss, who actually made me cry on more than one occasion. (She would also not let me wear my red scarf to work, because she thought the color red was too garish). Because she had just started her own design firm, we were the only two poor souls who were working for her, so really, we only had each other to turn and roll our eyes when she was on one of her insane trips.
Thankfully, both Tim and I eventually left that firm and found different, more creative professions! Even back then Tim was into photography, and he began tentatively setting up a wedding photography business, along with a great blog that showed off his work. I followed his blog from day one, and I watched as he (and his very talented wife, Angela) took their fledgling business to the very peak of creativity. Just looking at his photos you can see why I love their style. They capture moments, expressions, feelings that will stand the test of time.
The best part is now I can rest assured that my special day will be captured perfectly.
See Tim Chin’s website for more images and enjoy a few of my favorites below. It was super tough to pick a few favorites from his amazing collection, so I URGE YOU to go and see his portfolio on his site!
