Bill Brandt Photographs

Hi Hart Beat. How’s your night going? I had the day off today and was so happy to spend it with my friend S. at the Museum of Modern Art. We went there just to hang out and walk around (S. has a pass that got us in on a discount, score). Not only did

I’ve got a new post for the Aquarius Made series. Since having moved to New York, one of my favorite things is the idea that you can wear whatever you want whenever you want. Literally.
