Swiss Rebels

    Présentation de l'éditeur :

    "Karlheinz Weinberger’s day job may have been relatively uneventful—working in a Siemen’s warehouse—but the photos he took in his spare time are anything but conformist.

    Weinberger’s passion, and the focus of this book, is the rebel youth of 1950s and ’60s Switzerland, who channeled American rock-’n’-roll culture and made it their own with their rolled-up jeans and denim jackets, bouffant hairdos, striped T-shirts, and customized belts boasting images of Elvis and James Dean. Weinberger’s lusty, free-spirited and self-confident portraits posit the defiant attitude of youth as a response to the conservative post-war era.

    Swiss Rebels also includes homoerotic images of rockers, bikers, construction workers and athletes, many of whom occupy positions outside of social norms.

    This publication is the first to present an overview of Weinberger’s provocative oeuvre."

    Le travail de Karlheinz Weinberger sera présenté au "Mérignac Photographic Festival" (tout à côté de Bordeaux) du 5 octobre au 17 décembre 2017.

    Livre proposé en édition anglaise (existe également en édition allemande, non disponible via L'Ascenseur Végétal).
