Emma Summerton. Get into that name. In an editorial landscape suffering from a lack of new energy and new forces Ms Summerton is racking up the magazine credits at fast and furious pace. Tastemaker Kate (Moss) is into it. ID magazine is into it. British Vogue, via this image that I just uploaded onto MDC is very into it. Katja, KT and now Emma. I think the name-droppers of the trade are going to have to add some new buzz-names to their call-list!

My phone just rang. A voice said "Wayne Sterling. This is your past" I thought. "Oh Lord. I'm about to be arrested". It was photographer Juan Algarin on the line. Juan and I used to play together on shoots about 8 years ago when I fancied myself a stylist. We reminisced about how crazy we were in those days...absolutely fearless...absolutely free...hanging Paul Rowland's niece upside down above Theresa Lourenco at Pier 59. Shooting Kwame in Helmut Lang biker trousers with the fly open. Shooting Aaliyah for a cover portrait ..with her eyes closed. Well Juan and I are going to catch up on Weds to plot working together again and I'm very excited. He sent me these snaps of Irina from 1 literally 5 mins ago. I uploaded them right that instant.

I hadn't left NY is almost two months which was quite unusual as the big grinding machine that is Gotham usually has me ground out after a three week cycle. But now that Spring is clearly here, I find myself running through the city streets excited, invigorated and stimulated. (Literally!) I love how the new kids are dressing now in those clashing colors, in that skintight silhoutte, with all that generation/seperating bravado. I see more eccentricity, daring and individuality than I have seen in a long time. I love Agyness Deyn , I love all these exciting new bands and DJ's bursting out of not only America and England but also from Germany, Canada, France and Australia. I love how much information you can glean from Google/MySpace/Facebook/Youtube and I love that every entrepreneur large and small gets into the viral marketing of that. In other words I love the time I'm living in, the late Zeroes.

We're sure given enough clues all our beloved model maniacs will suss out the clients in question...but the Hiss Squad reports that La Linda is on set this week with that most blue chip of blue chip photographers shooting what could be that most blue chip of editorials (as well as a seriously iconic campaign). You didn't hear it here first!

18 year old Red fledgling Salieu Jalloh from Sierra Leone posed in front of lens of 18 year old photographer Shameer Khan and the results were beautiful. There something about these pics with the everyday wear and perfectly calculated casualness that remind me of that legendary Corrine Day shoot with Kate (Not to infer Salie is a new boy Kate or Shameer, a Corrine ). It' s very high school kids hanging out in a New York City park snapping shots of each other and I adore the truth of that. This is a testament to the ideal of picking up the camera and bravely expressing your viewpoint. Tracking down Mr Khan's contact info to give him due props!
