Dreaming

I do enjoy winter but now I can’t wait for the chill to end. We are in that phase where talk of snow is on the lips of many and I am extremely excited about the prospect of booking a holiday soon. One because I didn’t get the chance to go away last year, and two, for all the reasons listed above. Nothing beats a trip involving a beach somewhere sunny.

‘Girl Had Game’

Patti McGee

Making moves. She was the first female pro skateboarder and was the first woman to be graced with the title of Women’s National Skateboard Champion in 1965. She is also the first female to be included in the Skateboarding Hall of Fame. Born in Santa Monica, California (1945), and starting out as a surfer she moved on to more concrete planes in 1963.  She may not have been surfing but she certainly made some waves for females in the skating world and sport in general – especially at a time where such a sport would have been considered as a not-so-appropriate pastime for women. Also, as skateboarding had only just arrived on the mainstream scene, boards were incredibly small in width and the wheels were made of metal with little grip – making skating that much more difficult. Check her out. Patti the G!

Take It From Someone Who Knows How To…

Two great shoots and another great combination. Linda Evangelista and Steven Meisel.

Chantal Regnault left France after the ’68 uprisings in Paris to move to New York. Though,  it wasn’t until the late 80s that it was possible for these photos to materialise.  She managed to gain entry into the Afro-American and Latino homosexual and transgender crowds of New York, where a new craze called Voguing was taking shape at the close of the 80s.

This book documents this scene and allows the readers into a time and place that will never happen in the same underground way as before. The book is published by Soul Jazz Records.

‘Voguing came out of the extraordinary house ballroom scene that emerged in Harlem, New York in the 1980s where men competed against one another for their dancing skills, the realness of their drag and their ability to walk on a catwalk runway like a model.’       Soul Jazz Records
