Documenting Youth Culture - A Panel Discussion Including Chris Steele-Perkins

A panel discussion exploring the important role that photographs and magazines play in recording youth culture.

From Bruce Davidson’s images of the Brooklyn gang and Philippe Chancel’s documentation of Parisian youths to Chris Steele-Perkins’ photographs of the Teds, youth culture and photography is explored throughout Another Kind of Life. The publication of many of these images in magazines brought these counter cultural expressions into the public eye, making visible their position within wider society. This panel discussion explores the relationship between photographs and magazines, and the way in which these document and preserve youth culture.

Chaired by Maisie Skidmore, editor of AnOther Magazine, the panel includes acclaimed Magnum photographer Chris Steele-Perkins, Jamie Brett from YOUTH CLUB Archive and Gabriele Rohmann from the Berlin Archive of Youth Culture.
