Finally it’s here! All due to the hard work of some incredible talent. A big thank you to DTE Studio for their art direction and design and Premier Press for their amazing print skills. I am very proud to introduce the Mo Promo for Fall 2013!
As part of the City Modern showcase of residential properties, we got to experience first hand the truly unique space designed by architect David Hotson and interior designer Ghislaine Vinas. A four story penthouse whose center piece is an eighty foot long mirrored stainless steel slide that cuts through a good portion of the space.
Shot exclusively for Addicted To Retail, in a quite corner of Tribeca NYC sits this very unique boutique of bright colors and bold shapes designed by Karim Rashid and in collaboration with Agatha Ruiz De la Prada, a Spanish fashion designer showcasing her work in this flagship store.
On a recent trip to Italy I had the opportunity to stay at this amazing historic residence nestled on top of a hill over looking Florence. Torre di Bellosguardo was built in 1200 as a hunting lodge and family home, in 1500, the Marquises Roti Michelozzi summoned artists to decorate it, making it larger and more noble. During the 1920s, the Baroness Marion von Hornstein-Franchetti turned the Torre di Bellosguardo into a salon for nobles and intellectuals from all over Europe.
On a work assignment in Chicago we got the chance to photograph the recently opened Ian Schrager hotel Public. A refreshing change to a more modest approach in design and price, the walls remain bare expect for the over sized flat screen T.V.s and the amusing Mondino photographs of cows.
We were sent down to New Orleans to document a sports facility that was abandoned after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and left in ruin. It’s crazy to think that so many years after the hurricane hit that parts of the city are still devastated. The space itself is such a time piece. Luckily renovations are on the way, and I look forward to seeing the end results.
Recent assignment, possibly the best place to grab a bite at anytime of the day.
Herzog & de Meuron beautifully designed parking structure, with no exterior walls constructed around buttresses. Its created a little controversy not for just been described as somewhere between prisons and toll plazas but also for the high price of parking.
A lot of my work involves photographing spaces, interiors and architecture. Here is an interesting preview of the FuelBand project whose walls were made up of floor to ceiling L.E.D panels.
Back at my favorite place in Miami, I get such a kick staying here, the attention to detail is amazing and the service is unparalleled. As always many thanks to Martin kuczmarski and Guy Chetwynd.
My favorite building / gallery in London. The former Bankside Power Station, which was originally designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, the architect of Battersea Power Station. The power station was closed in 1981. The building was converted by architects Herzog & de Meuron. It is the most-visited modern art gallery in the world. The scale is very hard to comprehend in a photo and you simply must stand there and take it all in.
