Timothy Greenfield-Sanders Takes a Look at Fashion Week

Tsg Tsg2

Timothy Greenfield-Sanders pays homage to the personalities that populate New York’s Fashion Week each season in Look: Portraits Backstage at Olympus Fashion Week, which (for those of you in New York) he’ll be signing at Barnes & Noble on 6th avenue in Chelsea this Friday evening from 7-8pm. On hand to meet and greet will be Richie Rich & Traver Rains from Heatherette (who contributed an essay to the book) along with Amanda Lepore (above right, who contributed her curvaceous bod).

Others featured in the tome, which is Greenfield-Sanders’ first since the porn star portraits of XXX, are Anna Wintour, Rufus Wainwright, Rosario Dawson, Anne Hathaway, Zac Posen, Hamish Bowles, and Carolina Herrera with essays from Alec Baldwin, Tinsley Mortimer, Zac Posen, Fern Mallis, Martha Nelson, Patrick McDonald, and Simon Dumenco

A portion of proceeds from the book sales will go to the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s National Colorectal Cancer Research Alliance.

Below, you’ll find a clip from Italian TV of Greenfield-Sanders discussing a recent exhibition of his portraits. (NSFW)

    Has anyone on this blog ever met Amanda Lepore? I’m curious as to what she is like? Is it possible to know?

    I don’t understand her, but I’m guessing part of it has to do with her doing what she needs to do.

    The video portrays Greenfield-Sanders as a very genuine and sincere artist, making a poignant remark delineating between art and politics. Bravo.

    I find it funny to watch these older Napolitan men looking at the breasts of American porn stars, at one point virtually grabbing one model’s enhanced feature.

    Is it really so strange that the photographs of gay porn stars didn’t make it to the show in Napoli . . . it isn’t exactly Milan.

    😉 Nate.

    I’ve met Amanda… and she’s great. So sweet and is really interested in people. Most of what you see is a persona she plays. But when you get her within her core group or compatriots, she is just an extraordinary woman.

    I can’t seem to find this book in the bookstores in my area. I was wondering if anyone knew what Simon Dumenco wrote in this book? I’m curious to see what he had to say about fashion. lol Thanks :-)
