jungle fever

jungle fever

published in 1983, jungle fever acts as a pictorial autobiography of goude’s career. more than a collection of photographs, the book presents sketches, works in progress and mock-ups alongside the finished images, creating a narrative of how the images developed from concept to completion. much of the book is dedicated to his work with grace jones, his romantic and business partner at the time, and in the photographs and accompanying text we can clearly see how these two strong personalities pushed and influenced each other. the images in jungle fever are still continually referenced in the fashion and editorial world, and his work with jones is arguably more important now than ever.
