Jessica Craig-Martin (Born:  1963 Hanover, NH).  Lives and works in New York, NY

Craig-Martin has worked for Vogue and Vanity Fair, and has become celebrity artist. She is also on the board of Directors at The Art Production Fund who has curated “the Van der Woodsen loft” for Gossip Girl.

The artist rarely let the audience identify the subject’s faces, and she also photographs “the moment”, or part of clothes or a party. By doing so, Craig-Martin tells details about the society’s superficial   way of living or thinking, and also their obsession of the surface.

  1. The green dress has to be Leila Hafzi?

  2. I had been curious about if you ever thought of modifying the layout of your website? It is very well written; I love what youve got to state. But maybe you can include a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. You have got an awful lot of text for only having one or two photographs. Maybe you could space it out better?

  3. Hey Darlings, Lovely blog!
