"Dutch was a publication that influenced the way we looked at magazines for the next few decades.” ~ Diane Pernet
Famed hair stylist Neil Moodie featured a story he did for Dutch magazine with Alex Cayley on his blog - http://www.itsamoodieblog.com/. Moodie also included a brief history on the various players in this timeless story:
"Dutch was always done with a sense of humour and elegance which was one of the reasons forits success...This shoot featured today is one of many I worked on for Dutch, this particular one was shot by British born Essex boy Alex Cayley, in the earlier stages of his career. Alex had assisted Corinne Day in London ( which is when I first met him) then he moved to New York to assist the legendary photographer Albert Watson. When Cayley eventually went alone into the world of fashion he quickly made a unique mark with his technical but stark photography, but still managed to maintain a British edge to his work by converting to his British photography grunge roots, with the poses he would get the girls to do. Dutch magazine championed Alex’s work and he shot regularly for them which I was lucky enough to work on most of them with him collaborating with the great American stylist Joanne Blades. This particular story we shot in the suburbs of New Jersey, just across the Hudson river, an unlikely destination for a fashion shoot, with the former Gucci model Carolyn Park-Chapman."
