Photo Story: Diego Uchitel, "Christian Louboutin"

November 28, 2012 / Kalvin Lazarte

As we gear up for the opening of the photo exhibiton and book launch of Polaroids by Diego Uchitel, we are excited to share a few sneak peeks into the collection that spans the length of Diego's illustrious 25-year career as a photographer. Diego reminisces about a past photo shoot he did with Christian Louboutin for Milk Made's "Photo Story" series. 

"I was sent to Luxor, Egypt by Harpers UK to shoot CL and his friends as they sailed down the Nile River on his felucca for a week. The scenery was intense and the dynamics of getting to the boat were even crazier. We were escorted in a convoy of cars with a guardsman in each one carrying MK 47's. My crew slept in small tugboats tied to the sides of the felucca and we were woken up daily by the Adhan (call to prayer) of the nearby mosques. There was no way to NOT feel transported." - Diego Uchitel
