The Man who would be King . . .

Whatever happened to Allen Roth? He popped onto the scene about 2 years ago. He was 16 when I met him and already 6’1″. Hair down to his ass and such an exotic face that from a distance, he looked like a girl. But, upclose, he was strikingly goodlooking and masculine. I remember that Allen was very shy but extremely confident. We shot about 4 looks from Issey Miyake’s archives in the middle of a landfill. Accompanied by his Mom, we knocked these shots out in an hour on the hottest day that late summer. I never saw him again. And, a few months later, I had heard that he left his agency (RED). There was never an explanation given. That seems to be the way of male modeling. People just kind of disappear. Just thinking out loud. Whatever happened to Allen Roth?
