Ponyboy Magazine, vintage inspired photo editorials of people, music & fashion


Pictures & Words is the seventh in a series of artist books published by STH editions. When they contacted me and showed me the previous books, I decided to take a slightly less serious approach to mine. I was inspired by burlesque pitch books, mid-century flip books, Andy Warhol's Index and Chris Makos' White Trash.

A/W 2018

For those who do not know, Snow Xue Gao is a young super cool New York City designer.

Libertine for Fall 2018. Photography by Alexander Thompson.

FALL 2018

We've probably said this before, but here we go again...Libertine is hands down our favorite collection to feature every season during New York Fashion Week. Brilliant designer Johnson Hartig is consistently dead on with his LA based hi-end fashion label, catering to fun girls and boys with a bit of extra cash in their wallets.

"Fade To Grey" is the name of our latest Ponyboy menswear editorial, a song title from the new romantic band Visage, fronted by style icon Steve Strange. A favorite time period of ours, the late 70s to early 80s proved to be so creative and expressive, from the punk movement to the birth of new wave.

The David Hart Fall/Winter menswear collection. Photography Alexander Thompson for Ponyboy magazine.

F/W 2018

It's no secret that Ponyboy worships all things from menswear designer David Hart, with his twist on 50s midcentury aesthetic presented in past collections. However, this season Hart made this statement: “This collection is really inspired by the mass exodus of American brands leaving New York to show in Paris.
