Photos by Mark Leibowitz.
Today we present seven psychedelic fashion photos from photographer Mark Leibowitz’s current “Backstage at Galliano” exhibit, which opened as a private event April 25 in downtown Manhattan. The show includes 17 limited-edition prints created backstage at John Galliano’s fall-winter ’08 and spring-summer ’09 ready-to-wear shows in Paris.
“Cramped quarters, poor lighting, and a frantic atmosphere became my invitation to deconstruct the pandemonium revealing elegance and grace,” Leibowitz writes in the exhibit description. “During the shows I remained still while the variety of colors and layers in these images evolved past the lens in seemingly choreographed procession.” Leibowitz wouldn’t reveal how the images shown here were made… but more will be released in additional cities (including Los Angeles, San Francisco and London). A portion of the print sales will benefit the African Millennium Foundation and B Lab. Please visit www.leibowitzbackstage.com for more information.

Diver Oramas Pinijchob swims alongside the wreck of the Royal Thai Navy ship HTMS Kut (731), formerly the USS LSM 333, during an inspection dive on September 30, 2006.
USS LSM 333 was commissioned on November, 25 1944 and served in World War II, patrolling the waters off Okinawa after the invasion, and participating in the occupation landings at Northern Honshu and Hokkaido. After the war, the Siamese (Thai) Purchasing Commission negotiated with the United States and British governments to obtain war surplus material. The ship was commissioned into the Royal Thai Navy in 1947. The ship was used during the Korean and Vietnam wars, then was used as a training ship for many years until it was decommissioned in 2004. It was sunk on September 17, 2006 as an artificial reef.
Sukhum is a shipwreck researcher and underwater photographer based in Thailand.
