Celebrating Empire of Space - A Book by my Friend, Todd Eberle

My good friend, Todd Eberle, is well known in the world of photography.  I met Todd many years ago after launching Martha Stewart Living.  In fact, I gave him his first real job shooting a story for my magazine.  Since then, he shot many other fabulous stories for us and went on to become a world-renowned photographer of architecture, art, and portraits.  Todd is currently working as a photographer-at-large for Vanity Fair and he regularly contributes to the New York Times Style Magazine and holds exhibitions at leading contemporary art galleries such as the Gagosian chain of art galleries.  Last Monday, I attended a party at The Four Seasons in Manhattan, where Vanity Fair, Gagosian Gallery, Dom Perignon, and a large gathering of devotees toasted Todd and his first book Empire of Space. In this large collection of extraordinary photographs, Todd reminisces about his prolific career and shares many rare and never-before-published images of American culture taken over the last thirty years.  I hope you’ll have a chance to pore through his book.  I think you’ll admire his photography as much as I do.
