The power list

The lights are back on here! Whew. Thanks again, Tanya. Anyway, here’s what I would have written about if the afternoon hadn’t been interrupted :

– Some celebrity photographers collaborate with their subjects instead of paparazzing. (Is that a word? It is now!) Slate profiles one such Vichy-ish shooter.

– Amanda Scheer Demme talks to the San Francisco Chronicle about her soon to open “private, private, private place” which is a “lounge-slash-club.” I love that she said the ‘slash.’ (Link via Defamer.)

– Also in Slate, Edward Jay Epstein looks at indie film financing. Sounds easy!
