The Story of the Face by @paul_g0rm4n is out very soon. This image of @felixhoward (by Jamie Morgan and Ray Petri for Buffalo) changed everything in my opinion. I will leave it to the late Barry Kamen to explain. “It was about taking gentleman’s hats and different sartorial influences and putting a Jamaican spin on it, then dressing these things on a young, 13-year-old Jewish boy. It was giving it a different spin, and then putting the headline on it, like the front page of a newspaper. In 1983, people read it literally, until the word filtered into the language. These words, like hard and wicked, they weren’t known.” #theface #storyoftheface #buffalo #raypetri #jamiemorgan #paulgorman #felixhoward
