Nancy Corzine is Listening, April 2011
Nancy's travels and energy amazed us this year. Who could pull off the formalities of attending a royal wedding in India, the running of a complicated shelter lifestyle brand and also opening the immediately lauded and prestigious Corzine Fine Art Gallery in West Hollywood?
No one could, well, except for Ms. Corzine.
Elaine Honea's Les Antiques line of antiques inspired our first series.
We had a wonderful time conceptualizing and working to create these photographs. Each vignette was a group effort. I have gotten enthusiastic feedback on the candles and the continuance of this series. Allan, Elaine and I agreed that this was our favorite group project of the year!
The gorgeous renderings of the Museum Tower Dallas upped the ante and led to greatly increased awareness of the the newest of our city's premier addresses. The excitement has indeed become palpable during the final stages of the press that accompanies the unveiling. I couldn't resist including this image of Allan and Dan Boeckman taken on one of the upper floors the day we took our hardhat tour. I promised Allan I wouldn't use it.
Hmm... So I lied.
Baltus - Point of Departure, September 2011
Baltus, the contemporary line out of Spain, brought fresh clean lines and a fun edgy attitude with it as it slid in the door. What a fabulous mix of "right now" and "what's next". Lucky us.
Itinero ergo sum: I travel therefore I am. Sun Valley scratches that travel itch regardless of the time of year you or I may visit!
