From 2004 to 2005 Candy worked at The New York Times, where she was assistant art director of the Arts & Leisure section and art director of the TV Book. She laid out the pages and worked with a well-oiled team of editors, photo editors, and prepress technicians to produce the printed newspaper. This taught her a lot about delivering news to the city and has made her forever sensitive to rags, widows, and orphans. She ultimately left to study urban planning at Columbia University. Until then she solemnly walked by the Page One Conference Room everyday, giddily scored a copy of the Sunday magazine on Wednesdays, and enjoyed working with great people including On the Street fashion photographer Bill Cunningham who, at 80+ years old, still rides his bike and takes pictures of people around the city. He might be the only person who takes more pictures than Candy and her Asian trigger finger.
The great Bill Cunningham. That moustache, by the way, was a draft version of this sticker I was smacking up on subway ads during my commute from Brooklyn to Times Square.
