these shots are music to my eyes, i love a perfectly organized medicine cabinet, even though it can all change and it normally does, in matters of minutes!

January 27, 2014 Comments Off on white lines


love all the crisp, clean looks that these stark white coats of face lacquer create! perfect for a monday of not wanting to be at work and for covering up the fact that you got your less-than-eight-hours of sleep last night. nonetheless, happy 1st day of the week!

beauty is pain: the nyc ballet company

December 2, 2012 § 4 Comments

it’s a tradition of ours to see the nutcracker at the war memorial opera house in s.f. every christmas. although this year we won’t be attending because of other arrangements with family. it truly amazes me what dancers must go through in order to be successful in their field of study.. what can be so beautiful can be so painful at the same time.

“this is the secret,” says photographer henry leutwyler. “to completely blend in, to become invisible.” leutwyler spent last winter as the most observant ghost in new york city ballet’s rehearsal studios, capturing the uncommonly raw backstage images that now compose ballet, which is both a book {out in december from steidl} and an exhibit {on view at foley gallery november 28 through january 6}.

the shots here exemplify the peek-behind-the-curtain feel of leutwyler’s photos, from an open crate of tutus {“like pizzas in a restaurant”} to a ballerina’s feet after a day of matinée and evening performances {“when feet are demolished”}. “if i had to title the picture, i would call it reality and dreams,” says leutwyler. “the foot en pointe is what every little girl dreams of. the other is the hard, hard work, and the reality.”

get the most from your products + your money by cutting open almost-empty tubes with scissors. keep any remaining product in their tubes and store inside ziploc sandwich bags.
