Life in Pictures: St. Vincent

St. Vincent got some rare downtime in New York earlier this month before the touring onslaught for her self-titled fifth album.

Click through the gallery ahead for photos, plus Clark's thoughts on Philip Seymour Hoffman, Albert Einstein, selfies, penis art, and bloody knees.
