Description

At the end of the 1980s, ‘Voguing’ suddenly entered the mainstream when featured in Madonna’s ‘Vogue’ video, Malcolm McClaren’s ‘Deep in Vogue’ single and the 1990 documentary ‘Paris is Burning’ won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival. Photographer Chantal Regnault spent many years capturing the emergent underground gay ballroom scene in Harlem at the end of the 1980s, from where Voguing emerged. A riot of fashion, image, poly-sexuality and a radical subversion of style, sexuality and race is vividly captured in the hundreds of amazing, never before seen, photographs in this deluxe book. The book also features interviews with key figures from the movement, essays, flyers and documents from this momentous era.
