…and caught three photo exhibitions: Herb Ritts: L.A. Style, Portraits of Renown: Photography and the Cult of Celebrity, and In Focus: Los Angeles, 1945–1980.
All three exhibitions were great. If you live in Los Angeles, or if you’re visiting and are looking to check out some amazing art, get to the Getty!
Here are a few of my favorite pieces from the exhibitions.
Herb Ritts, Mask, Hollywood, 1989 (with model Stephanie Seymour):

…for a whole lot of reasons.
Not only are they great friends, but KB and I were also fortunate enough to have them shoot our wedding last month.
Check out a few of the photos here.

Anyway, Marino started up a Kickstarter page to raise money for the film. The page contains an outline of what he’s trying to accomplish, as well as a fancy trailer! Check it all out here.
Oh, and did I mention that my good friend Erik Rose is also involved in the project? Yep, he is! That’s his illustration work on the Kickstarter page.
So support indie film (and artists like Thomas and Erik) and donate today.
Going to bed,

You can learn more about the exhibition (and even see a short video interview with Jodi) here. She will also be interviewed on CBC’s (Canada’s NPR) “The Bridge” later today; if you don’t catch it live you’ll be able to stream it here later in the day.
Jodi is a sweetheart who I’ve known for many years now (more than a dozen!) and I’m so happy that she’s still making beautiful photographs. Learn more about her here.
She used to hate me,
