No matter how many times you ask Santa Claus, the chances of Kate Moss or Naomi Campbell showing up to your Christmas dinner are pretty slim. But if, on the other hand, you ask Sante D'Orizio, the supermodels won't exactly sip cider with you, but you can get a lot closer to them through Sante's latest photo exhibit, Barely Private, at Milk Studios this holiday season.

The superstar photographer has shot for Victoria's Secret and L'Oreal, and photographed some of the most famous people in the world.  Nearly ten years ago, he dazzled audiences with his first photo exhibit, featuring images of celebrities from his published photo-diary, A Private View.  A decade later, he's back for round two with a show based on his new photo-diary Barely Private, featuring images from 1997 to 2008.

The exhibit is at Milk Studios until January 5th. If you check it out, you'll be guaranteed intimate images of Penelope Cruz, Pamela Anderson, Angelina Jolie, Jay-Z, and even former NYLON model Noot Sear, complete with captions from Sante himself.

See you there.

Barely Private, 12/9 - 1/5 at Milk Studios, 450 W. 15th St., NYC.
