All Yesterday’s Parties


Now that Flickr is overtaking the gallery as the primary residence of photography, party photographers may be ready for their moment in the spotlight. Of course, if you’re going to be shooting parties, they might as well be the best parties, so New York’s scene photographers are first in line.
