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

From the Inside Flap

Now available in a flexi-cover edition, this book presents images of the rockers' world by the renowned photographer Horst A. Friedrichs. Alternating between rich, vibrant color and gritty black and white, his photographs capture a spirit of unapologetic defiance in clothing and in attitude, every bit as strong today as it was 60 years ago. Trenchant and revealing commentary from Friedrichs's subjects sheds light on the impulses, yearnings, and motivations of this enduring, international rebel-chic subculture. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
