IN 1976-1977 PHOTOGRAPHERS KAREN KNORR AND OLIVIER RICHON MET PHOTOGRAPHICALLY THE CHARM OF PUNK.
In their portraits they captured the young in revolt who were on their way to the definition of a generation. The images now become iconic, were taken at the Roxy and the Global Village in London. Through their photographs they have immortalized the scene of the union between music and fashion, exploring – in black and white – the anarchist vision of those years which takes us to a subcultural whirlwind perhaps never finished. They want to get away from the strategic picture we’re used to see for created a direct confrontation with the subjects, where their creations attest a presence that symbolizes the punk movement.
