JR the Artist………photographed 75 NYC BALLET Dancers

JR……the French artist……..famous for his grand scale public  photo projects,  spent 3 days in a white studio and photographed 75 dancers from the New York City Ballet……….all dressed in white.

Strolling around the Promenade of the Koch Theater in Lincoln Center you can walk on the photos of the dancers………or you can walk around the balconies and look down at other people walking on the dancers.  JR calls this a dance that the audience creates for themselves.

So I have created my own dance……….and here it is in a SLIDESHOW.  Have fun!

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK •Fall 2014• Finally, it’s OVER ! ! !

Mercedes-Benz Fashion week, NYC, happens in Lincoln Center twice a year.

This is THE WALL. Six BOUNCERS…..oops……….ticket checkers………guard the door.  The 1ooo seats in the tent are coveted by fashionistas……….celebrities and buyers from the worlds leading department stores.  You cannot but a ticket for the shows…….it is by invite only.

P1550951

This is where it is happening.

Koch Ballet Theatre on the left.  The Metropolitan Opera House in the Center and Philharmonic Hall on the right.  The cultural center of the upper west side.

We are not here for PRINCE IGOR……..rather the fashion shows on the runways in the tents.

P1500663

The tents are put up in DAMROSH PARK next to the Opera House.  It is a public park…….but Lincoln Center takes it over for “Pprivate” affairs [to the tune of $33 million a year]. The local residents in the area have a lawsuit against the Center for usurping their park.  Sooooooo……….how long with the tents be able to take over this space?

P1500662

It can cost up to ONE MILLION DOLLARS [like Marc Jacobs paid] for a 12 minute Runway Show.  The tent rental is $60,000 [seats 1000].  If you want a celebrity in your front row………you can get Beyoncé for $100,000.

P1080061

This is what the tents look like today.  More than 100,000 people descend on NY for the Fashion Shows, which bring in almost 1 BILLION to the city’s coffers.

Some beautiful people and a bunch of crazed street style peacocks were all over the Plaza…….as you have seen on my blog.

And a THANK-YOU to all of you who enjoy my BLOG.  I certainly enjoy putting it together
