Regularly cited as one of the most important English photobooks of the 80s. "In Flagrante is a book of fifty photographs by one of Europe's most outstanding and uncompromising photographers. The impact of these images is both immediate and enduring, creating one of the most authoritative and intense bodies of work produced this decade.
