Editorial Reviews

Review

Chantal Regnault's photographs in Voguing take on one of Ms. Ciccone's phrases right back to its roots, documenting in incredible and emotive detail how fashion could transport you way beyond the hood. (Mark Holgate Vogue 2012-02-01)

Although I love Chantal Regnault's photographs from 1989-92 that record and report on the New York City underground ball world, this is
a strangely random undertaking. Missing are images of the real `legends` turning it, the hallmark of the runway, and the interviews are so inaccurate that there obviously was no real editor involved in the project. Right out of the gate Hector Xtravaganza states that `Carmen is the Mother now since Angie died`. Danni was our Mother after Angie died. Following his death Raquel became the Mother, followed by Giselle. I would hate for anyone doing research on the ball scene to use this sort of information as truth. It isn`t. There are so many of us old schoolers around for fact checking. I`m sorry to see this kind of data recorded as fact.

Great collection of Voguers from the late 80s NY scene. What a concept. Chantal Regnault was dedicated to capturing this underground scene and I , for one, am happy she did.
