The industrial fad is old news by now, but usually it means Curtis-ish models truding down runways in all black. But what about all that actual industry?
The internet’s catching on, as high-res factory pictures have become the latest photo trend. You can find a set of some of the best here (via Andrew Sullivan), but a quick flickr search will get you hundreds more. So far it’s just photos, but we wonder how long it’ll be before someone's asking for a few more steam vents in his apartment. Bud Fox, maybe?
Now that the weather feels like Manchester, we thought it appropriate to chime in on the much ballyhooed Ian Curtis biopic *Control*. While The Clash's Joe Strummer worked hard to achieve style icon status, Joy Division frontman Curtis only really reached his posthumously—and even then to a much lesser degree. Of course, since he killed himself in 1980 at the age of 23, he didn't get much of a chance. But rakish rock'n'roll photographer Anton Corbijn goes some way toward setting the record straight in his supercool film.
