Detroit Gossip

Famous media photographer Bruce Weber was in Detroit for a week of shooting the Motor City for a special 40 page insert in “W” magazine to be out in September. Weber stopped by the Book Beat on Saturday to capture Detroit’s poet laureate Naomi Long Madgett, who was doing a reading with fellow poets Bill Harris and Vievee Francis. After the shoot, Madgett autographed multiple copies of her books for the famed photog. You can purchase or read for yourself about Madgett’s newly published autobiography at: Pilgrim’s Journey. Weber also invited Detroit’s own photo-documentarian Bill Rauhauser (author of Detroit Revisited and Bob Lo Revisited) for a private portrait session at Ameen Hawrani’s classy photo studio on Grand Boulevard where we were treated to a nice buffet lunch & caught super model Kate Moss shooting hoops out back with local homeboys. Kate & Bruce were observed earlier at a fashion shoot at Tyree Guyton’s famed Heidelburg Project. The art director from “W” magazine and Bruce picked up some vintage photographs and art books from Book Beat before heading back home. ~ report from Detroit, nouveau fashion & style capital of the world.
