Review: Elizabeth's photo exhibition.

Two ladies I've interviewed [as part of the series I started on this here blog] held very special events this week, one after the next. So here, I shall review their shows, one after the next ;)

Elizabeth amid the crowd, with her friend Max
On Monday night, 2.6.12, Elizabeth Gordon-Tennant held her very first solo exhibition in a swanky apartment on Manhattan's Upper East Side. With the help of a few pals (myself included), Beth prepped the space and hung/positioned 8 of her framed photos, projecting about 40 more onto a white sheet. The result: a very cool and perhaps unexpected photography show! Who needs an art gallery anyway?

While laptop-wizard Ari was DJing (Radiohead, Phantogram, Joy Division, etc.)  in the main room, speakers were also set up in the master bedroom, which lent a different moody atmosphere perfectly suited to the pictures displayed. Inspiring photos aside, I was obsessed with the view! And with a constant stream of guests -- those involved in the fashion/art worlds and beyond -- viewing photos, drinking beer, talking art, and just generally enjoying the vibe, the 2-hour show was a complete success. Elizabeth proved herself to be quite the lady of the hour! Here are some of my own photos of the event...
