Multcolib My Librarian Darcee: Sneaking a peek into the lives of others
Annotation:You've seen it in our Facebook feed. Now take some time with the book to really appreciate photographer Brandon Stanton's attempts to capture ordinary New Yorkers in the most extraordinary of moments.
Annotation:Take a glimpse into the closet of Frida Kahlo. 95 original and beautifully staged photographs of Kahlo's newly restored clothing are paired with historic photos of the artist wearing them and her paintings in which the garments appear.
Annotation:A photographic collection with stories of 80 people and the food they eat over the course of one day, organized by total daily calorie count and including detailed food lists.
Annotation:Photographs of children's bedrooms around the world, each shown with a portrait of the child whose bedroom is featured and with a short story text about their life. The contrasts are eye opening.
Annotation:Running with the idea that our homes are where we are truly ourselves, Peter York's wildly original and scathingly funny look at the interior decorating tastes of some of history's most alarming dictators proves that absolute power corrupts absolutely, right down to the drapes.
Annotation:Bill Cunningham has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirees for the New York Times Style section in his columns On the Street and Evening Hours for decades. Presented is a delicate, funny, and often poignant portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace.
Annotation:A provocative look at how our private spaces reveal our personalities. When it comes to the most essential components of our personalities--from friendliness to flexibility--the things we own and the way we arrange them often say more about us than even our most intimate conversations.
Annotation:One of the top cult films on fall time, Grey Gardens is the story of Big and Little Edie Beale, the eccentric aunt and cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis who live in a filthy, decaying mansion in East Hampton. Heartbreaking, oddly beautiful and utterly fascinating.
Annotation:Photo spreads, with brief commentaries, of possessions of families in more than 50 countries. What would it reveal if you spread your worldly possessions on your front lawn to be photographed?
