James Bidgood

Precious few people seem to have heard of the fabulous Pierre et Gilles, so presumably even less have heard of the lovely James Bidgood (who influenced their work).

I was lucky enough to get a signed copy of Corps Divins (P & G's more recent work) off the Marketplace of - and the photos are beautiful. Particularly the Mercury one.

Anyway, I googled for James Bidgood and found more information than I had previously. He made a film called Pink Narcissus in the 60s and you can now get it on DVD.

Here are some of Bidgood's photos:Pan by James Bidgood
