  3. i couldn't agree more -
    this work is like a perfect series of movie stills ,they take you right there to the happening in the most articulate focused and fantastic manner , today's fashion and photography as a whole is for the most part so much less authentic , believable or exciting ,I think he did other stories with the same "ALEX" subject for THE FACE magazine in the late 1980's- BERG publishing did a major story on him and the work "ALEX EATS" with some professor fashion writer , essentially they said he was a genius ,way ahead of his time.

  4. i think this photographer was huge in the late 1980s and 1990s,worked a lot for conde naste and Vogue, i recall he did a killer story for miss vogue , french vogue and german vogue, the models , men and women allways looked so present and hot while still totally believable ! a real killer , allways on....., where is he now ???
