Sexy Polaroids at Henri Bendel
Monday night marked the launch of a permanent She Hit Pause exhibition at Alison Nelson's Chocolate Bar at Henri Bendel. The party featured free chocolates, free drinks, and several raffles including surfing and photography lessons.
Why surfing? Because surfing is one of Schwartz's favorite photographic subjects (click here for examples). Really, you have to see these photos -- they invoke memories and inspire fantasies with a haunting and gritty glamour.
Schwartz was there at the party, smiling as he looked around. "This party is like my dream," he said. "All these people looking at my work." His humility speaks well of him -- but it won't be long before he's no longer surprised by all the appreciation. This kid is really, really good.
Check out the gallery for photos of the fete which showcased some brand new, not-available-yet photos from a recent trip to Ecuador. And if you're interested? She Hit Pause prints are available on the website for highly affordable prices -- don't be shocked if that price goes up soon -- or you can visit the luscious photography and grab something sweet at the Chocolate Bar at Henri Bendel.
