This weekend was the start of the ninth annual Jazz Age Lawn Party, the quintessential outdoor celebration of this era.
Each year, Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra, together with a fabulous team of assistants, transforms a section of Governor's Island into a family-friendly Gatsby wonderland, with thousands of enthusiastic attendees dressed to impress, ready to take in the sights and sounds of the musical entertainment and performances. Vendors selling vintage stylings, St. Germain cocktails, and a veritable smorgasbord of tasty treats from a variety of vendors ensures delights to suit everyone.
I was thrilled to be part of the photography team, snapping shots at the Paper Moon photo booth. Those guests who took advantage of this service are welcome to browse the album for the image of their choice - simply email me and let me know which digital image you'd like sent to you, and if you'd like to purchase any additional digital images. Prints, produced at a professional lab, can be ordered directly through the site.
