Pride and Glory: The Art of the Rockers' Jacket

Neuer Text

Photographer Horst A. Friedrichs captures the spirit of The Rockers Jacket in modern times. First coming into its own as a symbol of youth rebellion in the 1950s, the Leather jacket continues to fascinate as much for its beauty as its mythology. The leather jacket belongs to that select group of garments that can be described as iconic. No other western garment has been individualized so much, expressing the character and personality of its owner.
The book features new exclusive pictures from the Lewis leathers vintage jacket collection. Iconic leather jackets never seen before are presented alongside contemporary Lewis Leathers jackets. The book will contain interviews by Professor Colin Fallows, artist, curator and academic – including an in-depth interview with Derek Harris, owner of Lewis Leathers.

Internationally renowned photographer, Horst A. Friedrichs was born in Frankfurt in 1966. He studied photography in Munich and has worked as a freelance photojournalist for a number of magazines including The New York Times, Geo and Stern.
