As Grace

As Grace

Another picture reconstruction. This time the victim is Grace Jones and her picture by Jean Paul Goude (explained here) which was used for the cover of her 1985 compilation album, Island Life. Unlike Ms Jones, though, this is all me posing. No reconstruction other than adding the original background and props in Photoshop.

See the making-of picture of my version here.

Below is another, more elaborate reconstruction of the pic done with the help of photographers Jasmin Teer (photography) and Dan Bosworth (Photoshop) in July 2009.

This pic was "The Awesome" in The Goude, The Bad and The Awesome (March 2010).

  5. Well, I've been a huge fan of the original Grace Jones album cover for years, a very familiar image to me, so it was a surprise to see a male version. Great fun!
