photographs from old Zoom and Glamour mags

When I was in Marseille last weekend I picked up a bunch of old Glamour and Zoom (photography) mags from the 80s and early 90s. In addition to djing and writing about old rare cassette music on this blog, I do a lot of amateur photography. There were so many amazing old images in the mags that I decided to post some of them. I am particulary interested in creating the really saturated color film effect you get in some of the 70s photographs. But I understand that it's partly from film and processing that you can't get amymore, like slow speed Kodachrome.

The image of Grace Jones is from an article about the design of some of her album covers by Jean-Paul Goude. I also love the image from Goa of the white kids worshipping one of their own on drugs.

The following images were all from Glamour mags. I think if I was to be a woman, my ideal style would be the woman on the motorbike. So now. In contrast the outfit Naomi is wearing, I don't see that coming back anytime soon but maybe I'm missing something.
