The It Boy Photographic Common Denominator


By Carmen Comment

Even though Sara Vilkomerson‘s piece on “Summer It Boy” (wait a minute, wasn’t it this guy?) Taylor Antrim isn’t a direct carbon copy of Lizzy Ratner’s April piece on Dana Vachon in the same newspaper, it certainly feels that way. And then it hit me: Michael Nagle</strong> is the photographer on both pieces. Even stranger (or not) is that Nagle acted as photographer for a piece Vachon wrote back in 2006, this time for the New York Times. What’s going on? Has Nagle become the “photographer to the stars” for Literary It Boys?
