The Studio Museum in Harlem Fall Gala 2016

Monday night was The Studio Museum in Harlem Fall Gala 2016 held at Cipriani Wall Street.
This year there was so much excitement in the room and  it was announced that when The Ford Foundation heard that they had raised 1.9 million dollars. they said WE CAN DO BETTER THAN THAT and donated $100 thousand dollars to make it a 2 million dollar night. What excitement to know that the museum is flourishing in Harlem not only as a place to showcase the amazing art but also as a place of learning and training of new curators that are moving on to places like Moma thanks to the inspiration of Thelma Golden.

What they wore on the Red Carpet for ABT

Wednesday night was the ABT Gala at Lincoln Center. There were some stunning dresses. I would say my favorite  was the emerald green Gown worn by Ariana Rockefeller. Indre Rockefeller looked fabulous in lemon yellow while Fe Fendi turned heads in her stunning red off the shoulder gown.

Henna Con 2016

As most of you who follow me on instagram know I fell in love with henna last spring and have been  spending my spare time practicing and learning where ever and when ever I can. As a photographer it has been great to use my eyes and hands in a different way. Last Thursday night after photographing the Carnegie Hall Fall Gala  I raced home at midnight and edited and uploaded the photos so I could jump on a plane on Friday for LA where I spent the weekend at HENNA CON, the largest gathering of henna artist held each year and organized by the McQueen sisters and their mom Flavia.
What an amazing few days I spent encouraged and inspired by both the teachers and the other students. It was as always amazing to witness the beginners as they put henna on paper or people for the first time. It was beautiful to see everyone so focussed. We laughed, we cried, we stayed up too late, we shared stories and drew elephants and umbrellas and asked each other about how we fell in love with henna and when we said good bye we couldn't stop looking on instagram so see where our new friends were going.
It is wonderful to be surrounded by creativity in what ever form it takes. This is my thank you to my new friends, all who have inspired me

Carnegie Hall Fall Gala 2016

Last night was the Carnegie Hall Fall Gala and the ribbon cutting for the Blavatnik Family First Tier.
The evening stated with cocktails followed by the ribbon cutting. Next came the performance and then the guests made their way to the Warldorf Astoria where the ballroom was transformed by the team at David Stark. After dinner the guests took to the dance floor being wicked up by Peter Duchin and his band.
