Scarce- which is a shame, because it really is an absolutely stunning book. Shot in the 80s David Baker photographed youths around earl’s court, seedy pool halls and in the park- in a world that really does no longer exist in the same way. Rent boys, fellas cruising in the park, tough lads, young mods, skins and the like, in a London that seems to be another planet when compared to the present day. Quite romantic, and quietly malancholic.
