This issue of Print magazine is the BEST (I’m having a difficult time separating myself). Published in 1976, this issue is an exposé on fashion and photography. There is an amazing article on editorials coming out of Oui magazine, Viva, Playgirl, Playboy, New York Times Fashion…. all with photos from Helmut Newton, Deborah Turbeville and Francis Giacobetti. Most important, it includes interviews with photo and fashion editors from each magazine! Another article documents the progression of fashion through the decades, with images by Horst, Hoyningen-Heune, Beaton, Dahl- Wolfe, Sieff and Hiro.
Thrown in the mix of fashion, there is an awesome article of the best cinematographers of the period, discussing their film processing and lighting techniques: Conrad Hall (Butch Cassidy, The Professionals, Marathon Man, In Cold Blood, Cool Hand Luke, Day of the Locus), Gordon Willis (Klute, Parallax View, The Godfather, All the President’s Men, The Drowning Pool) , & Vilmos Zsigmond (McCabe and Mrs Miller, Deliverance, The Long Goodbye, Close Encounters). Also, Robert Altman discusses his directing process and some of his films (Nashville, Three Women, The Long Goodbye, etc). As a photographer, this information is invaluable. Every one of the movies in discussion are unique and considered classic, and the cinematographers are masters of style.
Finally there is an article on the fashion Illustrator Antonio Lopez that tracks his evolution and celebrates his work. Through the ’60s to the ’80s, Antonio was a prolific illustrator and photographer. He was initially brought to my attention by old Valentino and Missoni ads, then by his Polaroid work. Surprisingly, this magazine article is the most comprehensive collection of his illustrative work through the ’60s and ’70s, full of rare illustrations I wish I had in large format! Some of these images, you will not see unless you own the original drawing or track down the released publication.
Without a doubt, this is a special magazine! Cinematography, illustration, photography… extremely rare, and full of gorgeous references all in one place. You will not be disappointed. More Antonio Lopez to come!
