Memo Pad: Ad Revenues Slide... Photographic Memories...

Advertising revenue continues to slide... Pamela Fiori admitted it took 26 years to curate... Things were somewhat wilder...

Town & Country editor in chief Pamela Fiori admitted it took 26 years to curate a collection of work by influential photographer Ronny Jaques, who died this summer. The time represents the lengthy friendship between the two, which began while Fiori was on her honeymoon in 1982. Friends of both who gathered at the Hearst Tower Monday night for the release of “Stolen Moments: The Photographs of Ronny Jaques” included Bryant and Hillary Gumbel, Simon Doonan, Dennis Basso, Anthony Mazzola, Sirio Maccioni, Vera Wang and Helen Gurley Brown. A contemporary of Richard Avedon and Lillian Bassman, Jaques’ celebrity, fashion and man-on-the-street portraits were found in Harper’s Bazaar, Town & Country, Holiday and Gourmet. For Fiori, the images of Marlon Brando, Coco Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Bette Davis, Ernest Hemingway and others inspired the title “because when I looked at the photographs, they looked like they were photographs taken by accident.” Images from the book will be on display in a gallery space on the Hearst Tower’s atrium level for six months. — Stephanie D.
