Amazon.com reminded me of al this this morning with the notice of the new book No Such Thing As Society. The blurb says
"The human costs of de-industrialisation and globalisation were the great central themes of the documentary photographers active in the North of England in the late 70s and 80s. The social disasters captured in Chris Killip's work extended into the darkly coloured, claustrophobic interiors of DHSS offices photographed by Paul Graham, and Martin Parr's lividly coloured documents of holiday makers in New Brighton, Liverpool."There are a few photos at the accompanying exhibition . The two that stood out for me were these.
The generational change shown by the suited man and the half-naked woman.
The punk more afraid of his world than frightening to it.
