Anthony Friend captures Le Quartier Français

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

Anthony Friend is a local photographer based in New York, and he’s been wowing the Big Apple with his fashion and beauty photography: clean, simple, elegant and emotive are some of the words used to describe his style.  When he applies his eye to food and décor he creates a feeling of drama that’s more Vogue editorial than what you’d expect from a shoot in a décor or foodie magazine.

He’s currently in the country, and while working on some pretty spectacular food shots with Margot, he also lent his eye to our property. See the pictures below for a taste, and head over to our Facebook page for the rest of the images.
