Alasdair Mclellan, Kim Jones


Edition : First / London / Umbro / Boss Print Ltd / 2005 / Softcover. / VG+

Boom. Excellent work from Mclellan and Jones, shot in Brazil in 2005. Taking cues from Larry Clark and Nan Goldin this is as much a youth photodocumentary as it is a lookbook, and at around 200 pages it’s a fully fleshed out piece of work. Were it not for it’s published context, this could be one of the great youth photobooks. It’s also Mclellan’s first published book.
