Publisher's Description

'Teenage Styles and Trends was written, illustrated and published by Burton Yost Berry, a retired American diplomat and art collector, whilst he was living in Zurich. The book is filled with Berry's photographs of young people, mostly boys, taken on the streets of the World's cosmopolitan cities - New York, London, Zurich, Istanbul, Beirut, Amsterdam and Venice. In one respect it is an outstanding example of early street style photography. The aim of Berry's images and text is to capture the 'in' crowd, at the 'in' places, wearing the 'in' trends. In another respect it is an ode to the beauty and freedom of youth; a homoerotic appreciation of the young boy, personified in the final (and only) image of a naked youth. Published in an edition of only 300 copies Berry's book is extremely rare and is highly collectible as both a fashion document and a gay photobook.' — Parr & Badger, The Photobook: A History Volume III

A new reprint makes this gem of a photobook available again. Grafisches Centrum Cuno in Calbe/Germany digitized the original book, retouched it with an eye for detail, and printed it using latest Ultra HD technology – achieving brilliant images thanks to intelligent dot positioning and modulation. In terms of printing quality, the reprint may easily surpass the original of 1972. The English text remains untouched except for corrections of some smaller typos. Printed on Profisilk paper, coated, 170 g/qm, which slightly stronger grammage prevents images from showing through. The reprint’s dust jacket has a poster printed on the inside.
