Island Life

Grace Jones, Island Life sleeve 1985

I came across the above images serving as a description to how Jean-Paul Goudes iconic photograph of Grace Jones was created. Using clear plastic boxes and an 'A' frame Goude was able to do some photo doctoring and help Grace lift her limbs to dramatic heights. Grace's silhouette is elegant and powerful, her lacquered limbs stretched and shining to endless proportions. The photograph may be an illusion, but it remains a masterpiece and serves as a testament to two great visionaries.
