Product Description


Iain McKell has been photographing Britain's subcultures for 30 years, from the seaside resort of Weymouth (his hometown) to the skinhead revival scene in London to fetish clubs, warehouse parties, New Romantics, trance ravers and gangsters. Rather than simply documenting his subjects, McKell often integrally involves himself in the pictures, manipulating them with his own views or actions. --Dazed & Confused, April 2012

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In the tradition of humorous and insightful but not at all supercilious images of the title. Some memorable images that repay close attention. Variety rather than a specific focus. Very nice.
