Celebrating Summer and Paris

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Ofr Bookstore and Gallery are hosting an intimate fun show of Sam's work. This is the first retrospective of Sam's legendary calendar photography, produced primarily for Pentax from 1971 to 2000. The show runs from July 9th through to the end of August.

The 'Summer' part of the theme is obviously represented by the calendars whereas 'Paris' is being represented by 'November Girl' in various states of deshabillé with her melancholic longings in a bohemian bedroom and a cigarette to hand. In fact, the pictures were shot in Sam's studio in Johannesburg in 1966, using sets he styled and built, 'November Girl' has always been a firm favourite with the French who view her as quintessentially Parisian.

Two very rare signed vintage prints (with a handful of exceptions, Sam's vintage archive was unsigned) will be offered along with contemporary prints and vintage calendars.

See you in Paris...

Lingerie shoot for Vogue Paris

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Sam did a lingerie shoot for Vogue Paris in 2002 (and later reprinted in Vogue Australia), which for some reason was rediscovered by a flurry of fashion blogs this week. A couple of images from this shoot appear in Sam's last book, Fashion Etcetera. Since the images are enjoying a burst of popularity I thought it as good a reason as any to give them another airing.

I am including here some of the images which didn't make it into the original article and a selection of those that did. Some shots are low res scans from the original magazine which is not in my possession and some are jpegs made from the Fashion Etcetera production files. The variation in quality is, I think, an acceptable trade off against the interest of showing the images together.
