[Brian Wolk, Douglas Friedman, Tinsley Mortimer, Claude Morais. All photos by CHANCE YEH for PMc] One of our favorite New York City photographer's and one of this city's most stylish gents, Douglas Friedman teamed up with Ruffian designers Brian Wolk and Claude Morais turning their design studio into an art space giving us a glimpse into what happens when an internationally acclaimed photographer meets a night at The Santos House for Friedman's latest exhibit, Lady. Socialites, fashionistas, and your everyday trend setters gathered in the chic venue last Thursday to view Friedman's fantastically raw photos...Guests included Tinsley Mortimer, Hunter Hill, Douglas Marshall, David Chines, Zani Gugelmann, and Peter Davis who had a chance to chat with the talented photog:

"There was never the intention of making a show," Friedman tells me. "But when I looked at the images the next day, there was something there that I explored and manipulated. I was stuck coming up with an idea for the colaboration with Ruffian, but these images fit. They fit really well." [PaperMag]
