Every photo that we currently have from the #12MonthsofAnsel Calendar that Ansel did as a fundraiser for LaGuardia High School. The first photo is the cover. [Missing months are January, May, June, August, and Sept, though the photo of Ansel with the car is a confirmed photo in the calendar, we’re just not sure which month it belongs to.] All photos were taken by Sophie Elgort

Last week I went to see the 40-year retrospective of one of the greatest photographers of our time (and the sweetest man you’ll ever meet), Mr. Arthur Elgort. I’ve had the privilege to work with Arthur many times over my career - in fact my first ever shoot for American Vogue was with Arthur when I was just 17. More recently you might remember we shot for Tatler together with a bunch of teddy bears.

Looking over Arthur’s many memorable shots I was humbled by his incredible career, I can only imagine how vast his actual archive of pictures is. Thank you to Arthur’s daughter, the lovely Sophie Elgort, for this picture of her father and I.

If you’d like to see more of his work please go to the Staley-Wise gallery for more info.
