True Romance

NY, NJ and CT

Photo by Chris Craymer

When Chris Craymer's new book Romance [$50, Bene Factum] arrived at our offices, we were all intrigued. The London–born photographer has taken the unbridled passion of what he refers to as “pre–mortgage love” and captured it in a series of glossy, sexy photographs that would make even the most jaded of cynics wish that she, too, were making out on a window seat at a charming English estate or beneath a blanket on a deserted beach. If you're planning a stylish engagement shoot, these photos provide great inspiration.

And just in time for Valentine's Day, Craymer will be exhibiting 45 selections from the book at the Trask Gallery inside the National Arts Club on Gramercy Park South through February 16th. The artist will be donating 50 percent of all proceeds from photograph sales to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
