Deja Vu - Ralph Gibson
My friend and photographer, David Black, has one of the best libraries I've ever had the pleasure of perusing. I borrowed these two Ralph Gibson books because I couldn't leave without them.
Pema Chödron - Start Where You Are:
"I've been listening to talks by Pema (I owe my friend Elizabeth deeply for coming over and forcing me to get "Unstuck") Her voice is so soothing, yet shes blowing my mind left and right. "Shenpa" is a new and welcome addition to my vocabulary.
Jules et Jim - Henri Pierre-Roché :
Diana Vreeland - Bazaar Years:
Scruples - Judith Krantz
I have a date to watch the mini-series as soon as I finish the book. I should probably read it by a pool.
"Diane's 1980 collection of black and white photos of hotels. I love hotel rooms. I love Diane. A seemingly mundane book that reminds me of the importance of capturing interiors as they are, [because] someone will be fascinated by them in the future."
Kayten Schmidt is an art director, creative consultant, and model living in Los Angeles. Browsing through Kayten's Instagram and blog it's easy to see why we're drawn to her visual sense (Cy Twombly to Kate Bush videos to 90s Jil Sander ads), and to see why she is quickly making a name for herself in Los Angeles' ever-evolving creative scene. Thanks Kayten!
