The ‘Mode Avantgarde’ magazine was created and directed  by iconic Danish photographer Gunnar Larsen.  The Paris based publication was created as an alternative to the prevailing ‘romantic’ style of fashion photography in the early 1970′s.

Larsen’s form of photography was harder edged, pr vocative  and glamorous. He hated big noses and would apply white make up to the nose in such a way that on film it would disappear almost entirely. This technique would become one of this signature looks.
