Won't you Take my Picture Mrs. Photographer?

 Watermill Center Benefit Gala 2007 (Teacup Pug), 2007

Some things just aren't glamorous and that's a fact. Practically no one can take a picture of a tea-cup adorned pug next to a Mondrian-style wedge heel and make it look more fabulous unless it's Jessica Craig-Martin. Known for snapping the pics of the upper-echelons in their not-so-glamourous moments, she brings those of the high society a little bit closer to the masses with one part glitz and one part normal and creates a photograph that is alluring, yet odd at the same time. Take a look for yourself at an online exhibition entitled American Summer.

Cancer Benefit, Southampton 2006 (Air Kiss), 2007 

Oh, and I forgot to mention her artwork is displayed in Gossip Girl in none other than Lily Bass' Upper-East Side apartment. Yeah, she's that damn cool.

  1. I feel like it would bother me if someone was on the ground taking pictures of my feet or of me in awkward positions in general..

    I liked the exhibition link though!
