An Ode

One of the reasons I fell in love with fashion imagery pre-teen, I’d steal old Vogue’s from my Mum’s friends and obsess over the clothes and beautiful models, the glamourous scenes. Bruce Weber is an absolutely favourite of mine, I love the way he captures youth and vivaciousness with a degree of realism. Plus he uses loads of natural light. I imagine modelling for Bruce would include loads of fun activity.
Looking at this now I realise I’ve put an image by Alasdair McLellan in there – his work is obviously inspired in part by Bruce anyway. I started making the collage then realised it was all Bruce’s workg forgetting I’d thrown in that Alasdair shot. Can you guess which one it is? Also – spot a couple vintage 90210 babes, in Pepe Jeans and Gap ads… and a certain soccer superstar…
