I love Julie Delpy. And I love the Village Voice.
When I first met with art director John Dixon in 2010, in the Voice’s Cooper Square offices, you could smell the history (and perhaps a bit of mustiness) seeping from the walls. It was hard not to be impressed by a newspaper started by, among others, Norman Mailer, that in the past regularly featured the photography of Sylvia Plachy.
So I was totally excited, and slightly nervous, when John asked me to photograph Julie Delpy for a story about her new movie “Two Days in New York.” Putting aside “Before Sunrise” and “Before Sunset,” she was awesome as Dominique in “Three Colors: White” (and “Red”). So I was totally excited, and slightly nervous, about that too. I really didn’t want to f*ck it up.
But I don’t believe that I did. And John did an awesome job designing the layouts. I wish I was in NYC to see it on the streets.
