Seen Black Style UK

    Booth Clibborn Editiions

    This volume explores the immeasurable impact of Black subculture on British streets, dance floors, wardrobes and beauty parlours over the past three decades. It gives unique visual expression to the energy and innovation of a range of fashion trends and musical subcultures, including ragga, drum 'n' bass, house, and UK garage, through a wealth of unpublished images from legendary and contemporary photographers including Dennis Morris and David Swindells. Compiled by journalist and cultural commentator Ekow Eshun, with contributions from creative icons like DJs Trevor Nelson and Norman Jay.
