So my mom says that she and my dad were Vogue and GQ subscribers from the late 70s to the mid 90s. My brain started to throb thinking of all the visual inspiration in those pages, perfect for scanning, splicing and remixing into mood boards. (Basquiat, Warhol and Haring were still alive during a greater a part of that era, so imagine the art features. Back then, they fell under current events!)
But then she told me that she couldn’t remember where she had stored them exactly. Worse, she suggested that she may even have given the entire archive away, or thrown them out at some point.
Now I find myself grieving the loss of something I never really had. Time to hit eBay.
