Keith Haring, David LaChapelle, the Brants, Daphne Guinness at Tony Shafrazi Gallery

Had a wonderful time running around Chelsea on yet another blustery winter's day with my Belgian friend, Barbara running in and out of galleries to see shows and to keep warm. Visited the Patti Smith and Steven Sebring show at Robert Miller Gallery again and Patti was there and said "Hello" with that famous smile of hers when I opened the door. Then we walked over to the opening day of the Keith Haring 20th Anniversary show at Tony Shafrazi Gallery and ran in to none other than Naomi Campbell, David LaChapelle, Daphne Guinness, Peter Brant and his two children, Peter Jr. and Harry. David LaChapelle was very gracious telling us stories of his memories of his friend, Keith Haring and what a thoughtful and giving artist he was. David (who's film Rize is incredible) took the opportunity to photograph Peter's beautiful children with his good friend and muse, Daphne Guinness with the Haring works and 80's music playing in the background. I took some pics with my phone to record the moment of the brilliant photographer and director finding his inspiration for the day...Photos above: Renee Riccardo
