Week 209

Candice Bergen in New York City

Week 209

Candice Bergen, in her home, in New York City. Her space is a gorgeous duplex apartment, with a floor to ceiling window overlooking Central Park, that was first used as an artist loft at the turn of the 20th century. It is a fitting environment for Candice. She’s a wonderful photographer and we use the same lab, Chelsea Photographic, to process our film. Her space is littered with art and photography books. She is witty, funny, and extremely entertaining. Towards the end of our shoot she asked to put on a pair of prop reindeer antlers that she used at a recent costume party: you can’t say no to that. – JD

Week 204

Courtney Love and Todd Almond in New York City.

Week 204

Courtney Love and Todd Almond for Kansas City Choir Boy in New York City. Courtney Love is one of those “pinch yourself” subjects. I never expected to have an opportunity to photograph her. Though, this is really the reason why I’m a photographer: icons like Courtney. Todd arrived first, a lovely and very tall man. They got along perfectly. Courtney spoke about all the photographers she’s worked with from Avedon to Leibovitz. After the portraits I shot some acoustic rehearsal, and a few weeks later I made it to the opening show. The progression: meeting the lead actors to rehearsal to performance was a unique treat. The show was surprising and astounding. Courtney and Todd killed it. – JD

 

Week 203

Vanessa Hudgens in New York City.

Week 203

Vanessa Hudgens for Gigi in New York City. Vanessa plays the title character in this musical revival that was just picked up to debut on Broadway. Before our shoot I got a sneak peak of the cast rehearsing a few numbers. Vanessa was full of energy on stage, and their rendition of The Night They Invented Champaign was a spectacle. I enjoyed taking Vanessa’s portrait; she was cute and charming. By the end we were doing our best Audrey Hepburn impression, which is what this is truly all about. – JD
