HQ Photos Thread

As far I know of, this particular picture never surfaced in digital quality - the next best thing would be a good quality scan like lestermatias just provided.

It must exist somewhere, but most of Meisel's material never made the rounds in good quality (hence the crappy quality of all the SEX outtakes)

The version provided by lestermatias is a digital negative transfer not a scan. Also several other Meisel images are available as such. We could use bigger versions like >6000px, but at least they are digital transfers.

You can easily tell the difference. If you zoom in full size, the digital transfers have noise (image composed of many little dots) why scans show the print raster.

that's my (very) old scan of Paris Match mag actually. unfortunately, it's the only good version of this pic available on the net. funny that it could be mistaken for a digital file :smile:

My mistake. Looking closer I can barely see the print raster in the dark areas.

It's a great scan though!

Do you have it in a bigger size than 1018x2372 ?

no, stupidly at the time I scanned my mags at this low size to save some space... :wacko: and now they're all in boxes "lost" somewhere :sneaky:

as far as I know, this Paris Match one is the only place where this pic is printed in A4, and it's true the colors look less yellow than in Vanity Fair.

in the same mag, there was this one too printed in full, but in smaller size unfortunately (half of one page) :

of course, there is absolutely no doubt that all these amazing Meisel sessions are available in digital UHQ, like the Vogue 91 or Versace 95 that leaked in the past, I just hope we will have the chance to enjoy it before we're all getting Alzheimer... :sleep:

Haha I hope so too. I'd actually love it if more official images would leak in digital UHQ. It's sad that we get more outtakes than official images in that quality.

Well I do have great UHQ scans of the image you posted, as well as the one from the VF cover. If you're interested in them....

probably for her driver's licence :)

HA HA! That's funny. Oscar White was actually a White House photographer for many years. He did hundreds of portraits of many other people and of course, Madonna. She was in Hong Kong in January and February of 1986 and then she chopped off her hair in early April. These might have been taken early 1986 or even late 1985. She wore her hair up like this then too. She was planning to make many more movies so they could have been head shots for future jobs. It's hard to tell - I haven't found any concrete information on these.

Thank you. I was missing a few

I always wished we would get this set in its original quality. These versions that are circulating are upscales...

Well, let's not forget that we (the general public) are not supposed to have such files in the first place. Of course it's always better to have the real deal, but all things considered, upscales are not that bad after all.

Agreed. Still it would be nice if the original leaker woudn't have tempered with the files.
