SIMON BARKER – PUNK'S DEAD

145.00

First edition, published by Divus, 2013.

From 1976 to 1978, the young photographer Simon Barker was a member of the Bromley Contingent. This compilation of previously unseen photographs by Barker shows these founders of punk in their earliest incarnations, in bedrooms and kitchens, at public gigs and private parties. Taken with the simplest and cheapest pocket cameras, the photographs in this collection constitute Barker's family album for the years 1976 to 1978. In the spirit of the Pistols God Save the Queen, the volume closes with a photographic sequence taken by Barker during the 1976 Jubilee celebrations, which shows Romanian tyrant Nicolae Ceausescu hobnobbing with the Queen of England in the royal procession.
