Birthday Cake

Time flies when your fading. And blah blah blogging. Fading Ad Campaign Website just turned nine years old. The project’s inception was February 1997. Thank you for coming along for the ride and your collaborations!

Recently I saw this poster in Little Italy of Lenny Kravitz with the oranges lining the street and thought about Vitamin C. I had heard he was sick with bronchitis and had canceled some of his tour dates. When I took this shot, I remembered the crazy night when we were all out celebrating Rosa’s birthday at Plum (formerly Nell’s on Fourteenth Street), that infamous night Tommy Hilfiger punched Axl Rose (I missed the whole thing- I was having too much fun dancing and annoying the paparazzi with my flash). It was a media circus. I have some really fun shots of that evening and will share some perhaps on the second anniversary of that night now that I’ve located the files. Pardon the non sequitur.
