Over the Christmas break, two pretty awesome events occurred. The first one was I finally dragged my lazy holiday self to the city, wandered down to The Rocks and paid my $15 to view a certain exhibition.
It's been talked about at work as Madison is a sponsor, there have been numerous articles in the newspapers and of course, all my pomo (post modern, thanks Ju Ju via Belle) friends have been talking about going to view this little bit of history. Also know as the Annie Leibovitz: A Photographer’s Life 1990–2005 exhibition.
About half the exhibition was of celebrities, all sorts of people from the media industry photographed on movie sets or around New York. Everyone from Jim Carrey and Chris Rock to the infamous portrait of Kate Moss and Johnny Depp.
The second one was that I finally bought myself a Diana Mini. I have been talking about getting one of these cameras for months. After taking endless photos in New York, I decided I should delve into dare I call it the backwards world of photography.
When I bought it home, my Dad examined my little gadget.
"But it's a digital camera, right?"
He couldn't believe that cameras with film were still being sold. Duh Dad, vintage in the new modern.
After taking a whole roll of film in Bali, I am dying to get it developed.
Annie Leibovitz: A Photographer’s Life 1990–2005 runs until March 27th.
