talk to me


































































nobody at the wheel via urban outfitters genius blog.

hot diggity dog!
















stopped by trophy bar last night for their 2-year anniversary party featuring asia dog. eating a plain hot dog always gives me diner's remorse (and usually it's a secret affair), but for some reason, when they are topped with beautiful, tasty asian toppings, i can eat more than one and not get grossed out. which is what happened last night. the copious amounts of beer and the post-dinner-dinner at dumont burger are another story...

inez + vinoodh + lanvin = love overload

*the original photo i posted here kind of creeped me out afterwards...

this is much better:


































and then these:

Natman Room, BAM Peter Jay Sharp Building

Curatorial Statement:
“When I started the process of putting together this photography show, I thought it was going to be about New York and its many incarnations. However, as I started to edit, I realized that what I was putting together was a portrait of New York past–the city as it was when I was growing up in the 80’s and early 90’s. Not all of the works date from those years, but they all encompass the feeling of being young in the city as it was before the big boom, back when Manhattan could still feel dangerous.

“Being young here was a singular experience–riding the subways, walking everywhere, phone booths, beepers, sitting on stoops, the feeling that you owned everything. Part of that was just the joy and omnipotence of adolescence. Part of it is the overwhelming experience of coming into one’s own in a place as exceptional as New York.

“I wanted to include works that showed that unfettered abandon of youth (Robert Longo’s Men in the Cities and Cass Bird’s flashers on the FDR), the feeling of being so deeply and recklessly in love, with someone else, or with yourself (stills from Larry Clark’s Kids and Nan Goldin’s Heart-Shaped Bruise), and the haziness of trying to catch a memory (David Armstrong’s blurred buildings and Saul Leiter’s multi-layered cityscapes shot in the late 1950s). I wanted to capture the vast sense of possibility New York offers, and yet the way the city permeates on such a personal level.” – Skye Parrott

Skye Parrott is a photographer and creative director based in Brooklyn, NY.
