Our Find: A Dog Lovers’ Guide to Williamsburg

My friend Teresa has always loved dogs, shopping and food. As the manager of Blue Ribbon Sushi and the fashion show collection manager for Anna Sui, she has excellent taste, as do her well-behaved mini Australian shepherds, Dailo and Lola.

The Photographer’s Eye: Holger Thoss’ Family Panoramas

Posted by

  I met the photographer Holger Thoss years ago when we were both working at the documentary agency, Magnum. I still have a great love of reportage photography and looking at Holger’s incredible family panoramas, I see that he does too.
