Salon des Refusés – part 1

Monday, April 20th, 2009

In the course of producing my new book 'Fashion Etcetera' we ended up with a long short list, retouching and rejecting a volume of images almost equal to those that made it into the final book which contains 177 colour images and 114 black and whites.

This spectacular pair of jeans was one of many collected by Levis as part of a competition for denim artists that became a travelling exhibition in America in the 70's. I asked to photograph the pieces and we had great fun with them. Unfortunately the directors at Levi Strauss had problems with the nudity so the images were never used by the company. Several images from the shoot were shortlisted for my book and this is one of the rejects.

New Book! – Fashion Etcetera

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

The long hiatus since my last blog post was for a very good reason. It was all hands on deck with 18 hour days, 7 days a week, to get my new book 'Fashion Etcetera' to the printers on schedule.

Below are reproduction of the complete jacket, the front cover and below that each of the jacket images on their own.

This is my first book in a very long time - like 25 years - excluding of course the Directors Cut of Cowboy Kate published in 2006 - and the first based on a journey into my archives.
