This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: 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.
