In New York City, fabulous parties are practically a nightly occurrence for the rich, the famous, the beautiful and the even remotely well-connected. They range from movie premieres to fashion shows to product launches and restaurant openings, as well as anything else that serves as an excuse to throw a fete with free-flowing sponsored booze and crappy hors d'oeuvres.
But equally as important as the door person, the bartenders, the deejay, and the publicists are the party photographers hired to document the festivities. Manhattan's Billy Farrell Agency ranks at the top of this uniquely New York tradition, which has been practiced for decades by everyone from a Polaroid-snapping Andy Warhol to Farrell's former boss, Patrick McMullan.
To mark BFA's 5th anniversary, let's have a moment of slideshow silence, and party down with thirty of the agency's sexiest photos.
