Jorge "Gitoo" Wright Rocks Timeless Looks from the Seminal '70s

When we profiled model, producer and nightlife fixture Jorge Gitoo Wright back in October, he admitted to us that though he'd tried acting as a child, "it's kind of hard to act like people other than myself." Stylist Jessica Zamora Turner and photographer Bex Day wanted to highlight Wright's singular magnetism, casting him and his real-life friends for a '70s-inspired shoot in Brooklyn. "My style is documentary mixed with fashion," says Day. "We wanted to use real people, as they evoke an intense image and emotion that I find difficult to achieve when using signed models."  Together, Wright, Zamora and Day, who shoots using medium format film, have created a style story that puts a contemporary spin on an endlessly fertile moment in American fashion. "I feel like the '70s has been at the center of most of the current trends in fashion, " says Zamora-Turner, "and this story references the era from a less-explored angle."
