raf simon's riot riot riot bomber was the piece in question
View attachment 1589178
Lmao

“On the surface level, the Riot bomber looks just like a standard-issue army jacket detailed with artful patches. In a way, it is. The piece is simply an MA-1 camo bomber made by a small European military clothing company called Fostex. Fostex military gear is relatively inexpensive; a camo jacket today can be purchased for only €47 EUR(approximately $55 USD). Simons’ touch on the jacket are the patches, which include portraits of David Bowie and Manic Street Preachers musician Richey Edwards and a Bauhaus poster.”

Okay fellas here is what I was referencing earlier.if you studied photography you don't need an introduction .If you didn't this man was THE premier portrait photographer in the world .
Everyone form Ali to Picasso ,Hemingway to Martin Luther King.
Original Silver Gelatin and signed (I used a backlight to see the stamp on the back of the photo.he basically provided a self portrait and they glued it to the placard.)
This is from 1983 when he was promoting his book and is a 1 of 1.
There are some unsigned selfies floating around but not presented like this.
So I think it will be desirable to a collector of his works,which some have sold as high as 25K for a single portrait.
I'm in talks with a few galleries see what happens.
So what happened is the Ron Luciano placard was in window display and the other was hiding behind it.i knew of him because a friend of mine collects cameras and about 5 years ago he told me if I ever see a Karsh,buy.
So originally the photo was obscured but since I saw the Luciano was signed I figured hey maybe the other one is too.
30 bucks for both with a 10 dollar off coupon .
