Steve Strange dances with Vivienne Lynn in front of a silhouetted 3-piece jazz band. It is the 18th April 1980, and this is the Blitz Club. The two dancers wear the latest PX clothing, the shop was just a street away, and Steve was it’s face. The band behind the curtain are, from left, Stephen Jones, Darryl Humphries, Cerith Wyn Evans. Referencing Brassai's photographs of the demi-monde in 1920s Paris, it is shot on grainy b/w TriX.135.36 negative film and moodily lit. This image was airbrushed for the sleeve of the debut Visage LP.
