We are fans of Miranda July. She always has a fascinating point of view. Her latest project, We Think Alone, is weekly emails sent out to a participating audience, us, covering topics such as love, family, art, gifts and even dreams. But it’s not just July emailing us her thoughts and ideas. It’s private emails from […]
Erik Patton has been working for The MoMA for a few years, so it’s no surprise he has a good eye for art. His work, he says, is ‘meant to challenge traditional notions of femininity and masculinity in a playful (and almost dress-up like) manner’. Patton aims ‘to create meta-sexuals whose identities are not constrained […]
Katya Grokhovsky is an artist who works across many fields, including performance, video, installation, photography, sculpture, drawing and painting. I’ve known this artist since she moved to New York City, and has since been all over the map. With her performances and paintings mostly based around her being a woman, my favourite piece was when […]
I don’t know how I ran across Zackary Drucker’s work, but when I did, I fell in love immediately. Her performances and attitude remind me of … well, nothing I’ve seen before.

Though my photography is more ‘gutteral’ and ‘unhinged’ than Nadav Kander’s, his work holds deep inspiration for me. After winning the Prix Pictet for his work documenting life on the Yangtze, he has put together a show at New York’s Flower Gallery on October 18 for the images. I’ll be there with my shirt tucked in.
I mostly read this guy’s interviews because he really does his homework. Outside of that, I like his laidback approach to asking about peoples’ work. His latest project is Sex Magazine, which just came out this Fall. The magazine has a range of articles from fiction to fashion to photography.
Here’s what I did this summer: came out with my first book, Like It This Way, and had a touring exhibition of it throughout New York. When I photograph people, I create spaces and actions for performers to inhabit as I shoot. I like the lifestyles of the people around me, and I use their energy to capture free moments.
Over the summer, I was lucky to be in a group show out in the Hamptons with this guy. His work fixates on small moments that we might otherwise forget about. I wish I knew how to spray paint like him. He pretty much has a show a week, so just check out his blog for the next opening.
