This book has taken pride of place in my extensive photography book library. Super work and presented in high quality print on weighty paper.
Anders Petersen, photography that is about how it feels rather than how it looks to be engaged in Rome society.
"Young, Sleek and..." Awesome! Love this book! Contains some great insights into the early careers of some of my favorite artists. There should be more books like this!
A truly stunning body of work presented in a fantastic format. The book is impressively large, the photos printed in crisp detail. To flick through the pages is to step back in time to the underbelly of Sicilian culture.
Important book by one of the greatest photographers of popular culture period. Janette Beckman is a phenom. No one has done what she has. This book is a beautiful slice of that from the early days of punk to the present day Janette has been there and caught it... Amazing! Must buy!
✖ Beyond Action and Reaction we would establish ourselves ✖ We start from opposite statements of a chosen world. Set up violent structure of adolescent clearness between two extremes ✖ We discharge ourselves on both sides ✖ We fight first on one side, then on the other, but always for the SAME cause, which is neither side or both sides and ours ✖ Mercenaries were always the best troops ✖ We are primitive Mercenaries in the Modern World ✖ Our Cause is NO-MAN'S ✖ We set Humour at Humour's throat. Stir up Civil War among peaceful apes ✖ We only want Humour if it has fought like Tragedy ✖ We only want Tragedy if it can clench its side-muscles like hands on its belly, and bring to the surface a laugh like a bomb. ✖ ♥
