Carlotta Manaigo

Who knew that the cute little Italian girl I'd been shooting with backstage in Milan for three days (and having a ball) would turn out to be Carlotta Manaigo? One of my favorite young photographers.

On assignment for a Japanese magazine, Carlotta maneuvered her way through the backstage like a pro. ALL the guys loved her. (And I'm not just talking about the models but the backstage photographers as well.) It wasn't until leading Jay Massacret by the hand at the Gucci party (to meet my "new pal") just as he's telling me "Wait I wanna say hi to Carlotta," that we ended up at the same person! "You're Carlotta Manaigo?!? The one who shoots the beautiful portraits of the boys?" (Can you imagine?)

Do yourselves a favor and check out Carlotta's work. She has an amazing eye and I love her mixture of portraiture and landscapes. Her images have a dreamy romantic feel to them and I can't wait to see what she got backstage. AND, she's very cool.

Your photographs are starting to look repetitive.

Yeah, your photos of Karl Lagerfeld are repetitive JD. You should take nicer ones. Why do people compare photographers when their styles are so different?
