It's probably no secret that I'm a Hedi Slimane fan, having given him the only double feature thus far on here. I spent $320 bucks I didn't really have at the time on a copy of his Anthology of a Decade so I could have it signed when he came to LACMA. His first LA solo show opens at MOCA on Saturday at the Pacific Design Center space.
When I moved back to LA after a decade of living elsewhere, it struck me that people would ask where I was from and when I'd answer that I was from here, they'd find that odd. There are so many transplants in LA and Hedi is one of our finest adopted photographer sons.
