"Idols" is a collection of photographs Gilles Larrain took around 1973 of colorful characters he met in New York and got into his studio. He really captures their great individual style. They are Cockettes, Warhol folks and artists of that day. Gives you a great peek into past New York.
As I went to post this at the last minute I came across an interview with Gilles conducted by Ryan McGinley. Have a look.

anthropomorphic armoire

I got to see this incredible piece with my own two eyes!! It is absolutely extraordinary!! It's a huge wardrobe painted with oils by the great Lenore Fini in 1939. I was in awe. Towering over 7 feet tall it was almost breathing. I wanted so badly to crawl inside of it and take a little nap and dream a little dream.
