If I was in New York...

In the Night Life listings in this week's New Yorker there is the most interesting photo of French singer Emilie Simon. Her hair is long and dark, her gown is both simple and elegant, the backdrop is a very sexy red, and on her arm is, well, a musical instrument made just for her which looks appears to be disguised as a leather armband. The photo, assuming The New Yorker and the photographer don't mind, is below.

PHOTOGRAPH: ETHAN LEVITAS 

She is playing each Wednesday at the Cutting Room through October 22. I'd be there to hear her if I could. I just may share something from her for Feel Good Friday tomorrow. My French kick continues.

new yorker probably doesn't mind, but as a fellow photographer i say the photographer might. Whose image is it? After all, you are posting about the photograph, aren't you?

Good point. I'm asking his permission now and will take it down if that's what he wants. Thanks for the comment.

I've edited to add his name and a link to his site.
