Culture Watch
Kate Moss photographed by Annie Leibovitz, Paris 1999.

New York's Danziger Projects opened its Chelsea doors for the first viewing of The Kate Moss Portfolio and Other Stories. Eleven iconic images, photographed by the industries top photographers including Bruce Weber, Terry Richardson, Mario Testino, Chuck Close, Jurgen Teller and Mert & Marcus. The selections of images were compiled by both James Danziger and edited down by Moss herself.

A few photographers whose works of Kate were exhibited made an appearance at the show opening, however Ms. Moss herself could not make it. She is busy planning her upcoming July wedding to musician Jamie Hince. Mario Sorrenti, who dated Kate a few years back, was standing by admiring one of his own images of Kate. " Kate and I originally met at a party and I was so incredibly struck by her." When he speaks of the day he photographed her for the first time he says, "It was just such an amazing day."

To be sure, it was a star-studded art opening. Models Sasha Pivovarova, Erin Axtell and Jenny Shimizu made an appearance. Actress Leelee Sobieski joined her husband and fashion designer, Adam Kimmel, and the Downtown-set would not have been complete without Terence Koh and Vito Schnabel, who was overheard expressing interest in the portfolio. For a deeper look at the making of the Kate Moss Portfolio, see our story in the Spring issue of Bal Harbour Magazine.
