Ms. Bird has photographed everything for everyone: Rolling Stone, GQ, Nylon, Warby Parker, True Religion, Levi’s and so on, and directed films starring Jay Z, Cate Blanchett and Salma Hayek. Ms. Bird’s photo subjects—with their tousled hair, minimal makeup and relaxed vibe — epitomize Brooklyn’s no-fuss sensibility. Remember that ad from the Sophomore fashion label with two ladies flashing drivers from a highway overpass? Ms. Bird shot that—and then she hung a giant print of the photo over her marital bed.
