Anna Wintour

Anna Wintour PS

I got to Milk Studios for Suno’s inaugural runway show Friday evening as the sun began to set. I had been shooting outside Rag & Bone earlier along the West Side Highway and hightailed it back to Chelsea to make sure I got a decent spot on the photographer riser. I also wanted to make the most of the waning sunlight and shoot some more street-style.

A bit after 7 pm I was standing directly in front of Milk’s entrance, leaning against a parked car flipping through my photos, when I heard screams. Yes, screams. I looked up and saw her: Anna Wintour. I jumped into action and was able to get just this one photo as she walked right in front of me before jumping into a black car.

Yes, I was literally too close to Anna Wintour to get a decent photo of her. This is real life.
