Richard Reinsdorf photographer
viva Cartagena! Creating ONE Life’s inaugural fashion feature, “Urban Cool,” truly did take a village— of talent from all over the world. With stunning locations already scouted, we flew our team to Cartagena to get to work: a photographer from Los Angeles, a hair and makeup expert from Bogota, a stylist from Palm Beach, a model from New York City and the latest luxury fashions from the showrooms of New York and Cartagena. See the breathtaking results of our global effort on page 42.
“Urban Cool,” p. 42 Katherine produces and styles editorial fashion shoots and covers for Palm Beach Media Group (including Palm Beach Illustrated), like the gorgeous Cartagena feature in this issue. Her finger always on the pulse of the latest luxury trends, she also works with private clients as founder of fashion and style consulting company KL Style Inc.
“Living Art,” p. 32 In this issue, Miami native Tom offers a peek inside the partnership of developer Eduardo Costantini and artist Jeff Koons at Oceana Bal Harbour. Tom has also penned articles for the Miami Herald, Men’s Journal and People. Look out for his new book, which celebrates the 100th anniversary of Miami Beach, this year.
Richard’s passion for photography began at an early age, after he snapped his first photo of the statue of Atlas in New York City’s Rockefeller Center with his Kodak Instamatic. A decade later, he decided to turn his childhood passion into a career. Richard has a knack for connecting with his subjects, transcending both geographic and cultural barriers. “I love the collaborative nature of working with people,” he says. “Whether I’m shooting celebrities or models, or using real-life subjects in location settings, I need to find the best way to relate to them,” he says. “This has to happen. In the flow of the stories we’re shooting, and to tie the entire story together, all the elements must come together.” Traveling the globe on editorial and advertising assignments for clients ranging from Vogue to Sony, Richard says everything boils down to the team on hand. “The shoot is only as good as its weakest link, and all the artists need to be on the same page and focused,” he says. “Model/ subject, stylist, hair, makeup and set designers are like musicians in a symphony. We create visuals like an orchestra creates music.”
“Haute Havens,” p. 60 Founding fashion editor at Visa’s Luxury and longtime contributor to Allure and Women’s Wear Daily, Michele has covered the catwalks of Paris, Milan, New York and Los Angeles. Of pulling together the world’s best destination boutiques for this issue, she says: “I lived, breathed and mentally shopped those stores, spending a year’s income—fortunately, just in my imagination.”
“The Miami River Heats Up,” p. 116 Sean is the editor of Curbed Miami, where he has been covering local real estate, architecture and design for the past three years. A native of Miami, he is looking forward to the metamorphosis of the Miami River, which he affectionately calls “a watery highway through the urban jungle.”
