    TAVI  - THE  NEW "IT BLOGGER" BY DUSTIN PITTMAN
Tavi1 
       Tavi Gevinson (Style Rookie) by Dustin Pittman


If you don't know this by now. Tavi is the new 13 year old fashion blogger darling of the "New York Downtown" crowd. The "Superstar Blogger Of The Moment". Andy Warhol would have loved this. She was featured as one of the speakers on the panel entitled "The Future Of Fashion Blogging" held this week in New York. The audience consisting of hundreds of very serious bloggers were curious to hear what she had to say. After all, the press and many of her fellow bloggers from around the world were already condemning her because of all the press and attention she was getting in Paris and New York. She was being offered special guest seats in the front rows of Marc Jacobs and other top designers and hanging with Alexander Wang, Y-3, and Yohji Yamamoto. We all heard what she had to say that day and she sounded like she has that "PASSION FOR FASHION". 

I say:   "Live Your Dreams Tavi".

POPARCHIVES - PHOTOGRAPHY BY DUSTIN PITTMAN _ ANNA WINTOUR

FROM THE JOURNALS OF PHOTOGRAPHER  DUSTIN PITTMAN


ANNA WINTOUR - THE EMPRESS OF FASHION


I have known Anna since the 1970's when she work for "New York Magazine" as a fashion editor. She used to dine at 1/5 Restaurant. She was good friends with Keith and Brian McNally, the restaurateur's who invented "Downtown" in Manhattan. They were both on the 1/5 payroll then: Brian was working the bar and Keith was on of the managers. Back then, when Anna walked into a room, people would "FREEZE".

NORMA KAMALI PORTRAITS  - 1982  -  BY DUSTIN PITTMAN

Norma never liked getting her picture taken. She was always more comfortable being behind the scenes. I never understood why because
she has a face that every photographer dreamed of capturing. It was like, once you captured her on film "Sparks Would Fly".

YSL BACKSTAGE _ 30 YEARS AGO  by DUSTIN PITTMAN

I have been photographing backstage at fashion shows for over 35 years.  When I started backstage, it was empty of other photographers which made the designers and the other artists comfortable working around my camera without distractions. There was a sense of "purpose". Today, it's a "madhouse". Hundreds of "paparazzi" have invaded backstage and the runway without any thought as to "why" they are there. Hopefully, in the age of digital photography, when all a person has to do is press a camera shutter with machine gun speed, photographers will start thinking about "why" they are pointing their cameras and "what" are they trying to "say". Then, maybe,  the world will be furnished with timeless photography once again.
