TERRY BROWN & GORDON STETTINIUS_Night of the Year 2015
THE MANGINI STUDIO
Proposal by Martin Parr
For a period spanning eight years, Gordon Stettinius sporadically visited the Mangini Studio to have his portrait taken. The first of the styled portraits came about as the result of Stettinius’ disquieting need to experiment with the proud but oft‐maligned hairstyle known to some as the permanent wave. Not long after this initial effort, Stettinius began to sense a sea change in people’s general attitude toward him. To date, fifty of these studio portraits have been produced.
