Product Description

Or Glory: 21st-Century Rockers by Horst A. Friedrichs

Now available in a flexi-cover edition, this book presents images of the rockers world by the renowned photographer Horst A. Friedrichs. With their tattoos, leather jackets, slicked-back hair, and beloved British motorbikes–BSAs, Triumphs, Nortons, and Royal Enfields–rockers are the nemesis and antithesis of the fastidiously groomed mods. Elvis, James Dean, and Marlon Brando made rocker style synonymous with rebellion, sparking a global cult. Friedrichs follows the British rocker tribe as its members congregate in parking lots, pubs, dance halls, and pool halls as well as huge gatherings at the Jacks Hill and Ace cafÚs. Alternating between rich, vibrant colour 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 Friedrichss subjects sheds light on the impulses, yearnings, and motivations of this enduring, international rebel-chic subculture.
