    It was the best of times; it as the worst of times. New York City in the 1970s was a world unto itself, a world that was both burdened by poverty and government neglect, and burgeoning with culture and art. For many who lived through this time, it was something more than that. It was a time before AIDS. A...

    It is the photograph that has introduced the world to art in the age of reproduction, the copy becoming the way in which we understand the original. And so it is that the photograph is the means to literally objectify our world. We gaze upon photographs as a means to travel beyond our limited scope...

  • Mint&Serf: Never Too Young

    Friday Aug 22 2014

     

    For twenty years, “Law & Order” ruled the television airwaves, broadcasting stories ripped from the headlines into the privacy of our living rooms. From 1990-2010, the show brought the darkness of New York’s criminal world to the light. What made the show successful was the way it refused to turn away, but instead moved into murky waters in every episode. For some, truth was found in the details. Talented location scout purposely chose graffiti-laden settings as backdrops upon...

    W.M. Hunt is renovating his Upper Westside apartment. We stroll through the rooms, perusing the collection of art that exists in two dimensions and in three. Everything appears to be as he describes a photography collection to be: "I like pictures that are incredibly orderly and incredibly chaotic." This effect is echoed in the...

    It was a Saturday evening in May 2003. The place: Robert Evans Beverly Hills home and estate. The occasion: Brett Ratner's forthcoming book Hilhaven Lodge was being showcased during Book Expo America by powerHouse Books. The crowd included Jeff Bridges, Sean Combs, Ashton Kutcher, and Joel Grey. Patrick McMullan was taking photographs. Tanqueray martinis were being served. But all of that happened later in the evening—after the surprise guest had arrived.

    As photographer Jim Jocoy remembers, “It was exciting from...
