Jimmy Page can now add “male model” to his ever-expanding list of professional accomplishments. In a new ad campaign unveiled by menswear designer John Varvatos
, Page is featured alongside emerging Texas blues great Gary Clark Jr. in a series of portraits titled, “The Master & The Young Guitar Slinger.”
Veteran rock photographer and filmmaker Danny Clinch shot the black and white images at South London’s historic Rivoli Ballroom. Clinch also created a short film of Page and Clark to accompany the images. “Jimmy Page has been a music and fashion icon of mine since 1970, said Varvatos, in a prepared statement. “He has been a major influence and I am honored to call Jimmy a friend.” Varvatos also had high praise for Clark. “Gary Clark Jr. is the real deal,” he said, “[an] amazing guitar player, singer, songwriter and friend. Having 'The Master' and the 'Young Guitar-Slinger' together in our campaign is a dream come true."
