Far From, Close: by Helena Christensen...Opening Reception @ Dactyl Foundation, SoHo


Supermodel, photographer and overall do-gooder Helena Christensen hosted the opening reception of her new photo exhibition "far from, close" Monday night at Dactyl in SoHo. The exhibit is a series of images that include "environments, characters, objects and somber abstractions," and for every work sold the Dactyl Foundation will give a kid at ICP at The Point in the south Bronx a camera to pursue his or her own creative vision (I love that). Profits will be donated to The Point and to CPI Chernobyl organization.
The exhibit runs till Jan. 10.

Glenn Belverio Christmas Party...East Village


My good friend Glenn Belverio threw his annual holiday fete Saturday night and, needless to say, it was a jolly good time. While the place was too packed to take many pictures, I did manage to get some shots of Glenn's politically-themed Christmas tree, which, p.s., I loved.

Since I missed Glenn's tree-trimming party the weekend prior, I brought him a late politically-themed ornament: a pickle. It's a symbol of the state Bush and his administration has left our country in.

Glenn chose a Barack Obama finger puppet as the 'star' to top off his tree. A shining star indeed...

Of course it wasn't all politics. There were disco balls...

Ahhh...It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
