While many credit the NYT's Bill Cunningham and Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist fame as being the founding fathers of street style photography, the most prolific and talented contributer to the movement may have been a nanny from the 1950's. A large cache of undeveloped and unseen images remained buried until 2007 when a Chicago real estate executive and historical hobbyist bought a crate of over 100,000 negatives in a local auction in 2007. The new owner, John Maloof, began to develop the work and through this was able to piece together the artists name- Vivian Maier.
However his initial search to contact Ms. Maier uncovered a Chicago obituary- revealing she had died a year before at age 83. While disappointed that the talented photographer had passed, Mr. Maloof has continued to search for more information on Ms. Maier and is creating a documentary film chronicling his journey. The trailer for 'Finding Vivian Maier' can be viewed here and the film will be released later in 2013.
Red Peak was delighted to join over 700 other guests in support of the 14th Annual Free Arts NYC Auction. The incredible event helps to provide arts education for underprivileged children throughout the five boroughs. The silent and live auctions featured unique pieces from Max Snow, Hugo Guinness, Terry Richardson, KAWS and more. Our team was happy to help concept the design work for the evening and we cannot wait to unveil further collaborations with Free Arts NYC. Click here to see more photos from the night.

Kate Spade is catering to a younger, more savvy shopper in order to drive online business back into their brick and mortar stores. In the Tokyo location for Kate Spade Saturday, the little sister store to Kate Spade New York, the retailer has been adding just one item each week to its inventory. Along with cappuccinos and interactive iPads to lengthen the time spent in-store, the weekly change of selection will help to bring in frequent shoppers who are looking to have the latest and greatest available. The experience looks to combine aspects of both online and in-store shopping for deeper brand immersion and will expand to the upcoming New York location of the brand shortly.

Intended to reinvigorate the area that was once the crown jewel of the New York City, architecture firm Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill has suggested a large circular tube of glass that would track up and down two (new) skyscrapers.

Bob Egan tracked down the original locations of famous album cover photos shot in NYC. It's hard to tell what exactly has changed since the '60s and '70s, but it's impressive that Egan was able to find the locations in the first place.
