Publisher's Description

Selected as a Book of the Week by Clare Strand

Photographers Karen Knorr and Olivier Richon documented the London Punk scene between 1976 and 1977. The resulting black and white photographs, many unpublished for over 30 years, are brought together in 'Punks'. The word punk is associated with a style and attitude formed by disenchantment, nihilism, visual violence and theatricality. At the time these photographs were taken there were approximately 3 million young people unemployed in Europe. Some of the Punks captured by Richon and Knorr were still at school, others out of work and those who worked during the day were punk at night. For this early student collaboration, the photographers, both new to London, directly engaged with the young punks, encouraging performance and playful interaction.
