Favorite of the Week: Sam Samore

I spied this stack of Sam Samore Lips in a lobby on the north end of Madison Square Park last week! I adore this body of work! It's cinematic and voyeuristic and sexy but also a little gritty.

I like it so much that I own one myself:

But it's my dream to get two more (and, um, super tall ceilings!) to make a stack like this:
