Product Description

Review

In 1976, when, at the age of 26, Derek Ridgers began photographing London youth culture, he thought that he was far too old to participate in the scene. Despite his supposed dotage, though, he went on to spend the next decade haunting clubs with names like Billy's and the Blitz, capturing the madly creative fashion wonderland blossoming after dark.--L.Y."Vogue" (03/01/2014)

About the Author

Derek Ridgers is an English photographer with a career spanning over thirty years. He is best known for his photography of music, film and club/ street culture - photographing everyone from James Brown to The Spice Girls, from Clint Eastwood to Johnny Depp - as well as photographing politicians (Tony Blair), gangsters ('Mad' Frankie Fraser), artists (Julian Schnabel), writers (Martin Amis), fashion designers (Vivien Westwood) and sportsmen (Tiger Woods). He has also photographed famous and sometimes influential British social scenes such as skinhead, fetish, club, punk and the New Romantics. Derek Ridgers's work has been exhibited internationally since the seventies in cities as far ranging as London, Paris, Moscow, Adelaide and Los Angeles, and in venues such as the Institute of Contemporary Arts, Museum of Modern Art, National Portrait Gallery, Tate Modern, Tate Britain, Museum of London, Britart Gallery, Selfridges and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

people of a certain age will be transported back to a simpler time when all youth did not all look the same. Amazing how many of Derek's photos are iconic yet the man has such a low level of public awareness. Puts charlatans like Rankin to shame (imho). Looking forward to the next one.

A great insight to some of london more darker and interesting characters. I'd love to see what these people are doing in their older age?

Very interesting and precise record of the period. Excellent reference of actual fashion rather than fashion shoots.
