This first-of-its-kind collection presents photographer Karlheinz Weinberger's influential portraits of rebel youth of the sixties.
While Karlheinz Weinberger is known as a pioneer of male erotic imagery, the Swiss amateur photographer also left an indelible mark on the fashion world with his decades-long documenting of vibrant rebel youth culture.
These working-class teenagers created looks that fused iconic American pop culture imagery--biker jackets, denim jeans, bouffant hairdos, James Dean insouciance--with their own idiosyncratic sensibilities.
From the late 1950s through the '60s, Weinberger captured the defiant glamour of these youths with a keen eye for their provocative handmade designs.
Inspired by the rebel youth's pop playfulness and fierce individuality, a legion of contemporary fashion-industry leaders have been profoundly influenced by the photographs collected in this stunning volume.
