I arrived in Paris on September 1,1982.  I began shooting for W's Paris Bureau that same week.  On Sept.10th, Fairchild's Paris Bureau Cheif Patrick McCarthy and I flew to Milan for the day, to shoot this Versace outfit which was my first W cover.

This section of the website — Paris archives, actually includes material produced throughout my Paris sojourn, which lasted 5 and a third years.  I initially intended to go to Paris for a few months, but wound up liking it, getting work and staying.  Although it is named "Paris archives," work produced in London and Milan, where I would frequently be flown by certain clients, is contained here.








Part of an advance story for W and WWD on the Paris collections shot in September and October of 1982.  This dress by Theirry Mugler and worn by Swedish model Anna Johnson was shot in Paris.
