Kev’s Book of the Week Vintage 80s: London Street Photography by Johnny Stiletto
‘No other city has the variety of hairstyles male and female that parade the streets of London. The bouffant, the duck arse, the white wings of power swept over the ears, the coxcomb punk, the flat top, the social outrider’s bowl cut. They’re all there to make a place. In respect of the hair of the 80s, the rest of the world was dead from the neck up.’
Buy a 35mm camera at the beginning of 1980 and spend the next 10 years walking around London taking half a roll of black and white a day and photograph whatever happens in front of you.
You get Mick Jagger, New Romantics, ra-ra skirts, Boy George, Sloane Rangers. The beginning of Covent Garden, yuppies, the IRA bombings, the Iranian Embassy siege. Hundreds of headlines – John Lennon Shot Dead, Royal Romance: Andrew To Wed. Margaret Thatcher’s London, fashions that came and went.
Here are 160 unique street photographs of London when it was the style, musical, political and fashion capital of the world.
