Alexander McQueen _Backstage ’95


On the Anniversary of his passing, I wanted to show a series I had taken at the now infamous “Highland Rape” show at the V&A Museum in London 1995. I was a cocky lad, and with my camera under my coat I walked straight up to the tents and said I was was one of the dressers and waltz right in, randomly set my manual Nikon FM2  and started snapping away. It’s was such an adrenalin rush and I was completely oblivious to what I had experienced and the importance of what I had captured till years later.

The first image is available to purchase as a limited edition 17×22 print $1000.00 (US) for further info contact studio@modaoud.com
