Buzzed through Paris recently and came across this beauty in the Belleville neighborhood.

Thanks to everyone for coming out to the opening of Todd Webb's exhibit at the @thecuratorgallery in Chelsea last night. Great stories about Webb's post-war street photos in @archdigest @fortunemag @gothamist @loeildelaphotographie among others. I'll be at the gallery on Saturday should you want to say hi and catch a private tour.

Street art in Montmartre.
Accidentally wound up in Paris last week (long story) and took plenty of pictures.

I'm thrilled to be curating a show of Todd Webb's post-war NYC street photography. The show runs from April 20 to May 20; the opening is on the 19th at 6pm at the @thecuratorgallery in Chelsea. Webb, who was friends with O'Keeffe, Stieglitz, Gordon Parks, Berenice Abbott, was a true master. Please swing by.

Late-night New York.

Red Stripe.

Yesterday, more than 500 people said goodbye to the great George Pitts at a beautiful service in the West Village. There was so much love and deep respect in the air. George made many memorable covers when we worked together at @life. Here's one of my favorites. Thank you, GP, for inspiring generations of photographers, artists, and visual thinkers...and for being my friend.

Pieces of New York. From golden spire to water tower to modern high-rise to turn-of-the-century, it's all here.
