SHAFRAN, Nigel. Teenage Precinct Shoppers.

(New York, NY): Dashwood Books, 2013.  Tall octavo.  Unpaginated.  Volume of portraits of teenagers shoppers were shot around the shopping centres of Ilford and Brent Cross.  Shafran’s images, first appeared in i-D magazine. The photographs are as much an empathetically anthropological portrait of British youth at a particular time and place as they are an illustration of specific “types.” There is no professional styling here; instead Shafran documents the subjects as they were.  His ‘no thrills’ approach going on to influence a whole new generation of photographers.  A near fine copy in stapled glossy wrappers.  Published in an edition of 500 copies, but scarcer than even the limitation would suggest.
