Gunnar Larson was a Danish fashion photographer working in the Paris scene in the 60's 70's & 80's. He didn't find immediate success so he wrote to supplement his income. He launched Mode Avantgarde in 1978 as a luxury thrice yearly magazine with no expense spared. The Mode was dropped from the name on later issues.
