Flashback #19

Random photos from my negative files #19 - A couple of SF inspired shots modelled by Sue Brown, 30th September, 1979. I can date this exactly because I just found my old diaries! Sue used to model for me a lot in the late 70's. We both studied visual merchandising at a college in Charing Cross Road, London, and used to do photo sessions in our spare time for a bit of fun and practice. The giant ant in the crazy photo below had been made out of styrofoam by my brother Martin a couple of years earlier, who at the time was just 16. Needless to say, model making eventually became his profession.

The Changing Face of Mannequins

Here are a few shots from the Window Mannequins stand at the EuroShop Trade Fair in Düsseldorf, Germany, a few days ago. This was one of the most exciting range of mannequins I think I've ever seen, with a unique and ingenious system of interchangeable faces and features, making them truly versatile and ready to adapt to any trend in make-up design or colour.

Eyes right? An array of eyes, ready to slot into the face itself.

I felt as though I'd stepped onto the set of Westworld when I spotted the mannequins below...

... or perhaps the set of I, Robot!
