Celebrated documentary photographer Janette Beckman has an eye for capturing the beauty within the hidden crevices of society. Throughout four decades, her work has uniquely documented an ever-evolving zeitgeist of change-makers, which the monograph Rebels: From Punk to Dior is the first to showcase so thoroughly. It includes her early photographs of London’s punk rock scene, The Clash and Boy George; spans her move to NYC, where she covered the underground hip-hop scene, Run-DMC, Salt-N-Peppa and other rappers; and ends with her more recent photos, which depict the Black Lives Matter protests as well as collaborations with brands like Dior and Gucci. This collection, published by Drago, includes written elaborations from visionaries such as Paper magazine co-founder Kim Hastreiter, Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri, Sting and Slick Rick and comes signed with photos printed on baryta paper.
