Schiffmacher – Photographer is the first comprehensive retrospective of the work of Schiffmacher as a photographer and as the title suggests, it is about photography (and not about tattoos)! With a wide selection of photos taken between 1970 and 1985 in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Amsterdam, Tokyo, Mumbai, Manila, San Francisco and Kuala Lumpur. The book brings a raw mix of analog shot photography of society in the 70s and 80. The book offers a variety of stories and people and shows Henk’s incomparable raw and curious sense of photography.
Picture after picture the book shows a unique personal insight into the magical world of young people, bikers, tattoo fetishists, legendary rockers, skinheads, yakuza and lots more. A wild mix of cultures, nationalities, habits and excesses against a background of vintage cityscapes and timeless landscapes are defined in a single publication; back in time, like you was there.
Schiffmacher – Photographer is a brilliant representation of Schiffmacher’s unique view of the world four decades ago: raw, pure, direct and unprecedented!
