The careers of Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn have seemed linked (albeit tenuously, of late) since starring together in Swingers, Doug Liman's 1996 comedy about wannabe actors braving the L.A. social scene. Since then, the pair has collaborated on Made (2001), the Favreau-directed farce about ex-boxers learning the ropes of organized crime, and The Break-Up (2006), in which Vaughn played a freshly dumped man-child and Favreau a sage bartender.
Mick Rock as the name suggests, is a man tied to the world of music. He is regarded by many as the photographer laureate of the glam era and has photographed a who’s who of rock’n’roll: David Bowie, Marc Bolan, Blondie, Iggy Pop, Queen, The Velvet Underground…. Need I go on? Though best known for his shots of the ‘70s, Rock never stopped shooting and is in high demand today among music’s A-list; Madonna, Scissor Sisters, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and more.

It’s a well-known truth that people always want to be what they are not. This seems especially true when it comes to hair color (if only I could pull off red!) and occupation (oh, to be an astronaut). I’ve noticed recently that every artist I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with insists their art is closer to another genre than what it seems, in a “yes, I make wood carvings, but I consider them to be paintings” kind of way.
