Congratulations to Grace Chon, winner of Unpawsed - a competition to find America's next fine art pet photographer. A show celebrating her work opens this weekend in Culver City at Royal/T. I am so thrilled for Grace, but not surprised. Her soulful, polished style and her ability to connect with your pet makes her the best. I know I am biased because I adore the photos she took of Darby last fall. But visit her blog and see for yourself. Her work is exceptional.
Better yet, stop by Royal/T, a space "inspired by the meido kissa (maid café) phenomena of Akihabara--Tokyo's electronic district. Recontextualizing the underground culture of Japan that celebrates cosplay (costume play) waitresses dress in maid uniforms, with a Lolita-esque touch and the café serves a fusion of French and Japanese cuisine with local and organic California style," and celebrate with Grace. Brava!
