Well the locations haven’t changed much but they sure do have a lot fewer Nazis.

 

Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor??!??

 

 

Photographer Peter Macdiarmid gathered modern photos from Europe and layered them on top of historic pictures of WWI, to convey the impression of how little has changed. Remarkable 100 year commemoration contribution and great fun with reading the comments.

American Apparel product documentation and print ad.

American Apparel product documentation and print ad.

 

 

An informative report on American Apparel is hard to find. Much like an interview with Sasha Grey is hard to find, with an interviewer, not totally screwed by her background in porn.

Why should it be any different with Pauline Thierry’s AA report in the German edition of Huffington Post?

I don’t see American Apparel, it’s the reporting on American Apparel I see at a new low.

 

 

Maks – the girl from Dakar you see in the ad (above to the right) – is as Made in America as American Apparel. Her unabashed nudity is a tacit reminder—this is what American Apparel looks like. This is what our fantasy of what Made in Bangladesh looks like. Not a poor, underpaid, overworked young woman making you a $5 shirt for 30 cents an hour…”

 

 

 

 

With its product documentation and ad campaign, American Apparel disrupts glossy pictures and parrot bird make-up in the fashion industry and replaces it with normcore, blunt women in their every day environment. For sure this contributes to efficiency in getting the shooting done in the able CEO’s view, who values vertical integration.

AA’s creative director Iris Alonzo explains the campaign.

Documentary film about a mysterious nanny,
who’s photographs becaem famous über die Sozialmedien erlangten.

 

 

When in 1995, Kyle Shannon showed me around their quiet New York Agency.com, he explained the silence with the teams to be concentrating on work, and also how the agency would go about their quiet ones, so they can have their say.

An investigation into the life of a quiet nanny beginns, who had taken the pictures during her lifetime and became famous for in social media.

A nanny took photos on the side for years, lost her negatives because she couldn’t pay for the storage space, and was only discovered after her death.

“Is there anything you wish that was done differently?”

“Sure, I wish I would have found those negatives instead of you.”
