Product Description

Review

Alternating between rich, vibrant colour and gritty black and white, these photographs capture a spirit of unapologetic defiance in clothing as well as attitude, every bit as strong today as it was sixty years ago. --Davida, 8 September 2010

A multi-layered visual narrative that is as fascinating as it is stunning to look at. --Plectrum - The Cultural Pick, 14 September 2010

Lurching between punchy black & white and strong colour, the images in this book describe a sub culture that has survived from the 1950s, and which is very much alive today. --Black & White Photography, Nov 2010

Rock-n-roll is here to stay, it will never die claimed Danny and the Juniors in 1958 and this book of contemporary portraits of British rockers, by London-based photographer Friedrichs, is the proof. --Octane Jan 2011

'This book captures those committed to keeping the spirit of rebellion and defiance alive...with pictures in both black & white and rich colour [Friedrichs] has captured some unique images.' --The Dubliner 7th Oct 2010

I like this book. It's full of photos of people of varying ages but with a commom link .... Rock and Roll and motorbikes. You can see that the older people have a story to tell and that the younger people have yet to live to find their story. I particularly like the black and white photos as I find these more within keeping of the feeling of the Rockers. I'm glad that I've bought it as I find peoples faces very interesting.

Just like a good photobook should be; Large fullpage photos with no text, apart from desription in the back of the book, and ofc a a little text at the start. The pictures themselves are good quality with a mix of B/W and colours.Most are in colours. You wont be disappointed if you are looking for something different in human portraits. Strongly recommended.
