9788862084055: Derek Ridgers: 78-87 London Youth: Limited Edition

The new collector's edition of Derek Ridgers' 78-87 London Youth includes a numbered C-print, signed by Ridgers, titled "Tuinol Barry, Kings Road 1983." Taken in the streets, clubs, basements and bars of London between 1978 and 1987, the photographs in this volume celebrate the many mutations in London's youth culture. Ridgers (born 1950) has documented the perennial youth ritual of dressing up and going out since he first picked up a camera in 1975. These photographs capture punk's evolution into goth, the skinhead revival and the New Romantic scene, and the eventual emergence of Acid House and the new psychedelia. Among those portrayed are Boy George, Neneh Cherry, Leigh Bowery and his boyfriend Trojan, Michael Alig, John Galliano, Hamish Bowles, Cerith Wyn Evans, Steve Strange, and Martin Kemp and Steve Norman of Spandau Ballet.

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.

Review:

The good people at D.A.P. were kind enough to send a copy of "78-87 London Youth" over and we were transported back to the streets, clubs, basements and bars of London of the time.

These photographs captured across the span of ten years bridge the extremities of youth-culture; from punk through to the brith of acid house. The pictures serve not only as a fascinating document of UK style and culture but as a testament to the spirit of youth, lauding the subjects and their individuality. This book offers us the chance to see the changing faces of fashion, music and culture through individuals and influential social scenes in a time of DIY attitudes. (Alex Nicholson Juxtapoz Magazine 2014-05-23)

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 2014-03-01)

In his new art book, Ridgers intimately documents the confluence of creativity born of the late-'70s/early-'80s London club scene of punks, new romantics, and skinheads--armed with safety pins and eyeliner--who took to the night to revel in its freedom and defy the drab conventions of the waking hours.
