In the Blink of an Eye: Mark Borthwick
Mark Borthwick's photography has been lighting up all sorts of stops in the "alternative" fashion publication world, with editorials in Purple, Self-Service, Nylon, i-D and Italian Vogue, and he's done campaigns for Adidas, Vanessa Bruno and Yohji Yamamoto, among many, many others. His name's often in the same sentences with the likes of Sonic Youth (he's done some of their album artwork, most notably for A Thousand Leaves), Cat Power (he shot and directed her Warholian "performance film" Speaking for Trees) and downtown designer Maria Cornejo (they're married). And to top all that, he writes and does music as well. It all adds up to absolute cool and high influence, but it's well-earned: Borthwick's photos have a wonderfully physical, decentered treatment of fashion, almost as if it existed in the peripheral vision of his casual, relaxed, offhand world where people live and move to the rhythms of the street, not the runway.
