I haven't really kept track of what I've posted already but I don't think any of those are my own uploads actually. My job mostly consists of finding the scans (generally on thefashionspot, 90% of the stuff come from there I'd say, each post title usually links to the original post/source), sometimes I have to dig up a bit more to find a missing picture/bigger resolution or I have to piece things up together from various sources, that kind of stuff. But you kinda need to know what you're looking for otherwise it's a bit tedious.

The thing is, most of the stuff on thefashionspot is hotlinked from various image hosting sites so there's no guarantee it'll remain available, lots of content has already been lost due to websites shutdowns etc. So this also serves an archival purpose of sorts. smile.gif

Not sure where exactly this should go, but Fuuma was gracious enough to share his magazine collection

 

Currently looping through all the PDFs to render them out to JPG and should have that finished over the weekend, which should make it easy enough to get them embedded here.

Just to make things clear about what you can expect: this isn't my mag collection as I delete jap mags right after reading them but I've been dumping what I read in there for about a week so you get new stuff when I read new stuff + I put Fruits issue 1-50 in there.

They have stood the test of time because, unlike the barrage of new magazines that have followed, Joe’s paid little attention to celebrities, and even less to advertiser demands. At the height of the supermodel era, McKenna gave his first cover to the most divine woman of all time — the Virgin Mary, who was depicted looking upward and serenely exhaling a cloud of smoke, presumably from a heavenly roll-up. What publication today would include in its debut a feature on the early-’70s model Wallis Franken (wearing, in one instance, only a couple of strategically placed Band-Aids), a tribute to the actor Dirk Bogarde, a lengthy piece on Tennessee Williams and a conversation with the painter Paul Cadmus?

Only a few thousand copies of each issue were printed, and they rapidly became collectible — on the Internet, a well-thumbed number can currently fetch more than $200. Not bad, considering that McKenna essentially produced the magazine on a whim. “All the photographers I knew wanted to have a space where they would have no restrictions," [...]

For a fashion publication, Joe’s paid very little attention to clothes, and sometimes none at all. In Issue 1, Bruce Weber’s shoot of Keith and Derrick Brewer — one of the most controversial of Weber’s career — shows the nude, adolescent blond twins interacting in a way that suggests their special bond transcends fraternal empathy. In Issue 2, a beauty portfolio by Mario Sorrenti opens with a shot of the fashion editor Grace Coddington’s unruly ginger mane, followed by a roster of fair-skinned redheads au naturel. (The model Maggie Rizer gamely sports what is possibly the most severe sunburn ever captured on film.) There is practically no retouching throughout: even an unruly pimple on a David Sims close-up of a young boy’s face is not excised.

“We didn’t fool around with the images much,” says the art director Sam Shahid, who designed the layouts for Joe’s. “This magazine didn’t have to worry about what anyone thought, so we could focus on the quality of the pictures rather than what was shown in them.
