WEINBERGER, Karlheinz. Swiss Rebels.

(Göttingen): Steidl, 2017. First edition. Quarto. 239 pages. Great volume showcasing Weinberger’s images of rebel youth of 1950s and `60s Switzerland, who channelled American rock-`n`-roll culture and made it their own with their rolled-up jeans and denim jackets, bouffant hairdos, striped T-shirts, and customized belts boasting images of Elvis and James Dean. Lusty, free-spirited and self-confident portraits posit the defiant attitude of youth as a response to the conservative post-war era. The volume also includes homoerotic images of rockers, bikers, construction workers and athletes. A near fine copy in photo-illustrated boards without dust jacket as issued.
