dovima in balenciaga.

why can’t I just *be* dovima? (um, she’s the one on the left.) we would like to be at the avedon show at the international center of photography this week — it’s been open for ten days or so. we are not in new york but luckily it’s on till sept 6 so we will be seeing it. safe to say mr avedon is one of my idols, along with madame yevonde, man ray, lartigue, atget, etc. etc.
