Ricky Adam’s first book, Destroying Everything, documents over 20 years of some of the most influential and poignant counter-culture photographs ever taken.
By bringing together aspects of BMX , Punk and underground youth culture, the collection powerfully captures the freedom of those that do things their own thing their own way and live life from the heart. Lodown Magazine called the book “a testament to Ricky Adam’s ability to capture the optimism, energy and enthusiasm of a generation that prefers to live a counter lifestyle.”
Adam’s work is so influential that it has been featured in many international publications and record labels including DIG BMX magazine, Juxtapoz, Obey, Maximum Rock N’Roll, Upper Playground, Hamburger Eyes, Dischord Records, Burning Heart Records, The Independent and more.
After the first edition sold out in less than a month, Drago is proud to publish the second edition of his book which includes an additional 12 pages.

He has spent decades playing in bands & traveling all over the world, building up a unique series of photographs. "The way I work is kinda haphazard and often out of compulsion. I tend to only photograph things that genuinely interest me. I’ve found that’s the way to get the best results." His work has been featured in many worldwide publications/record labels, some of which include: DIG BMX magazine, The Independent, Juxtapoz, Obey, Maximum Rock N’Roll, British Journal of Photography, Upper Playground, Hamburger Eyes, Dischord Records, Burning Heart Records. His work has also been exhibited in art shows throughout the world.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:
‘It’s hard to explain, it just felt right and when I began to see the results it pushed me to take more. At the time no one else was taking photos at shows, so apart from enjoying taking photos as time went on I also felt it was important to document certain aspects of the punk scene that I was involved with’
