BUNNEY – Derek Ridgers/Selected Works
The first paper from London-based jewellery brand BUNNEY will feature selected works from classic London photographer Derek Redgers. From the mid seventies through to the late eighties, Ridgers captured some of the most significant movements in British youth culture history, not through images of the major players and influencers but through portraits of individuals who made up those scenes. Often nameless, always authentic, they are given a quality of attention traditionally reserved for celebrities; classic portraiture let loose on the unconventional and nonconformist inhabitants of outsider culture. Ridgers’ images portray a kind of individualism that many of us may find shocking and unsettling. Produced by Rupert Smyth Studio and featuring an interview with Ridgers by Jason Jules, the paper will be available at selected Bunney outlets soon.
