Default David Bowie by Steven Klein on Vogue

On L'UOMO Vogue, september 2003 the editorial "IS THIS CONCRETE ALL
AROUND" photographed by Steven Klein...

Any idea of how those pic were made ? Digit/analog, light setup,
location...and so on ?

Some scans i found on the net..

I'd imagine a softbox or umbrella over the camera and either a scrim
overhead, a large softbox or there is no roof over the apparently abandoned
jail, or maybe its just a warehouse with a toilet in the corner like a
prison.

can't tell from the small jpgs whether digital or film and I'm not that
technical anyway.

I see you are no longer claiming amateur status, did the guild loose power?

Agreed. It seems terribly contrived.

Dunno if I'd call it crap, but yes, I think the photographer / art
director was trying /way/ too hard to be 'arty' & 'challenging'.

This is the kind of photgraphy that is intended to impress nail
technicians at the beauty salon.

Almost. Young non-photographers buying "fashion posters."

It is a set. The backgroounds have been painted. Softbox and some
grids.
I'd imagine film, as a lot of magazines still prefer to have color neg
shot.

Of course, its not "Waffle Boy", but evedentilly it is/was successful
for the magazine, which is part of the reason they did it like that.
