This was my first assignment for Vogue. I was
"discovered" by Rochelle Udell, then Art Director of
Vogue (currently the Editor of Self), because of my work
in the pages of Penthouse. (I had returned to my
apartment in Chicago, and had a message on my answering
machine to "call Vogue!" I couldn't believe it.)
editor on the shoot, Phyllis Posnick (now the editor of
another Conde Nast publication, I believe) became
increasingly disturbed because I had come directly from
shooting for Penthouse (after all, a Penthouse
photographer shooting for Vogue!).
after the film was reviewed at Vogue, Phyllis passed on a
lovely compliment to me, and offered me the opportunity
to shoot for Glamour where she had become Editor (I never
did because of the internal politics at Conde Nast).
Eventually the pages were picked up, and run in a special
issue published by Vogue Paris.
