Just days after the opening of BEAUTY CULTURE, Leonard Nimoy visited the Space to take in the featured images and also check out his own photos in the exhibit. He'll be back at the Space again later this year, this time to discuss his photography as part of our IRIS Nights lecture series. Thanks for stopping by, Leonard, and we'll see you in September!
Coach and Spongebob Squarepants star Bill Fagerbakke stopped by the Photography Space to take in WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY during its very first week. Hope you enjoyed this powerful exhibit, Bill. Thanks for stopping by!
Model and actress Amber Valletta, who popped into the Space recently to take in BEAUTY CULTURE, poses in front of a photograph of herself featured in the exhibit.
Spotted at the Space just this past weekend was a living music legend - Mick Jagger!
We had a couple of very special visitors at the Photography Space this past weekend. Pulitzer Prize-winning Associated Press photographer Nick Ut came to the WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY exhibit along with Kim Phúc, the little girl in his famous Vietnam War photo. The two viewed the photos and the film in the show. Above is a picture from their visit.
Phúc was only nine when the image was taken 41 years ago and now lives in Toronto. She described the event in an interview last year:
"Suddenly I saw fire around me and it burned my clothes. I was very scared and began to cry. I tried to run away from there...I ran and ran until I saw people in front of me. I felt very hot, thirsty and asked for help. They gave me water to drink and wet my body, and I lost consciousness."
Here's archival film footage of the moment when Ut took his photograph.
Spotted at the Space this past weekend were more notables taking in BEAUTY CULTURE. Philip Seymour Hoffman and 15-year-old wunderkind fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson all stopped by to take in the exhibition as did 6-year-old Eden Wood, who was featured in the accompanying digital feature film.
Stay tuned for more spottings!
BEAUTY CULTURE's run at the Space is currently at it's half-way point and visitors continue to flock to the show. Among those who stopped by this past weekend was Fran Drescher, who was super-friendly. Thanks for checking out the exhibit, Fran!
Spotted at the Space today: actor Chris Noth, who made it to the War/Photography exhibit just in time. The show closes this Sunday!
Model and actress Andie MacDowell, looking as stunning as ever, came in to check out BEAUTY CULTURE a few days ago and was happy enough to pose for a photo during her visit. Thanks for stopping by, Andie!
Guess who's a fan of Helmut Newton? None other than actor Aaron Eckhart, who stopped by the Photography Space this weekend to take in the very popular exhibit. He even agreed to pose for a photo on his way out. What a heck of a guy!
