"passport, s'il vous plaît"

this chanel no. 5 ad is truly an exquisite piece of film. it features audrey tatou and is directed by jean-pierre jeunet. it is a divine example of how advertising can be emotional and evocative. i want to watch it again and again because it tugs on my little heart strings. right now i want nothing more than to be on a train with someone saying "passport, s'il vous plaît..."

i'm a finalist in NYPA 09!

i have been nominated as a finalist in the 2009 new york photo awards!

in case you don't know what it is, here's the blurb from their website:

"To be named a nominee of the New York Photo Awards 2009 means that one has been selected for the final round of judging, during which time only three finalists will be chosen (Winner and two Honorable Mentions). Considering the number of rounds that the Jury has already been through, being nominated is truly an award in and of itself. We are very proud of this year’s Nominees. It is clear that they represent the Future of Contemporary Photography, and we wish them continued success."

howard schatz + jeff goldblum

i found this in vanity fair last month and it is an amazing combo of howard schatz directing/photographing jeff goldblum. click on the image to see it larger - you need to read the character descriptions below each photo to understand how awesome this is. i plan to try this on future people i photograph.

days with my father, part 2

images copyright phillip toledano

i checked back with one of my favorite sites today and discovered that phillip toledano's father died. the last photo/entry in the site is heartbreaking and beautiful. the whole project is exquisite and a personal reminder to be actively, vocally, crazy-grateful for all the people in my life who i love and who love me. if you haven't done so already, check out the whole site from top to bottom, you won't be disappointed.
