I am still googly eyed over this portrait of Tony Kushner by Christian Weber for New York Magazine. It’s all silvery and full of shine and special glasses reflections and is just beautiful.
I was so enamored that I trotted over to Mr. Weber’s site to see what else he’s been up to. Turns out, a lot. Have look-see.
