The original paparazzi

. May 29, 2012.

Almost every day for the last 50 years Bill Cunningham has ridden his Schwinn bicycle through the streets of Manhattan, capturing the latest fashion trends worn by fixtures who shape the industry.

DuPont’s Floodplains Flows Onward

Water can be purifying, it can clean and soothe and nourish. It can also be something so formidable as to wear its way through soil and rock. Fittingly, then, Chris DuPont has titled his forthcoming album Floodplains, evoking a subtle but potent force of nature where a river mimics the unpredictable bends of life, depositing
