JOSIE BORAIN CARRIED A CAMERA THROUGHOUT
HER CAREER AS ONE OF THE 80'S TOP MODELS. SHE WALKED WITH NAOMI AND LINDA ET AL AND SHE SHOT NAOMI AND LINDA ET AL. SHE PHOTOGRAPHED THE PHOTOGRAPHERS! HOW WE NEVER FOUND THIS BOOK BEFORE WE CAN'T SAY. LONG OVERDUE FROM THE SUPERBOOK LIBRARY!
Josie You & Me. Published in 2003. That's only 14 years of
looking at it. It was James Pecis who told us about it. It's his favourite. Now it's ours and likely yours too. A magic book.
That's Josie with Human League fringe and her rat called Gonna. The eighties!. The book makes good use of mirrors for self-portraits. This is a picture of the supermodel life way before Instagram, the iPhone or even digital cameras. A girl on film.
And her friends. Jean-Michel Basquiat. Looking so young.
François Nars. The man. Before the brand name. And Linda of course. These are great photographs. If you are starting to want to see more of Josie modelling try this

to start with. The Calvin Klein work is historic.
And this is Steven Meisel. This is a really very great photograph. But you can see that.
The back of the book. Josie photographed from behind by Pierre Houles. The Hotel du Cap. Serendipitously, where this newsletter was written this week. The copies we have are safely in London. And will ship worldwide. And now all you need do is take your eyes away from that picture above and hit the button below.
