Gaultier Junior cropped MA-1 and red sheepskin by Viv

THE FACE, september 1988
photography Anthony Gordon


  1. Editorials back then where so much better. It felt more real, like that girl could be me

  2. these pictures are absolutlley f -brilliant !!!
    who is the anthony gordon ?
    what is he doing now
    its unbelievable the clarity , energy , reality and color of the photography , you just don't see this realism and integrity today .

  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 ???

  5. yes I agree totally .Got awake up today!! I just saw vogue Italy December 2017 , a food , cook girls and boys gone wild with food and drink in kitchen and dining room ,Nuts - reminds me so much of Gordon's Alex Eats work fort now defunct FACE .As if they copied his work an ideas . I have some mags of his -Many vogues/covers , miss vogue , french glamour ,GQ, interview , details and stern magazine and even sports illustrated bathing suit issues - editorials - always lively and powerful , its amazing.I think he was a huge for many years , then quit to do commercials .A true icon that lives on , up there with Newton , such power and clarity , such a pity he stopped snapping ,sadly missed .where are you Anthony Gordon , you master !
