In The Gutter

Val Hennessy


Edition : First / London / Quartet / 1978 / Softcover. / Near Fine
4to, 96pp. Stiff photographic wraps. Profusely illustrated with colour photographs by Michael Haines.

One of the more stylish (and a little odd) punk photobooks, gig shots, street shots of Toyah Wilcox, Suby Barnes, Dee Marsh etc. contrasted with african tribal make-up, piercings etc. Stemmed from her project on religion, so a little different to most punk books of the same period. Very nice – but somebody has stuck some horrid laminate on the cover – which isn’t.
