Portretele neformalilor și rebelilor britanici în vârstă.

By

  Fotograful londonez Moore Widler a capturat neconformiștii britanici în vârstă: punkeri și rockeri, scuipând focul unui circ și chiar un dublu chinez Elvis Presley.

Widler spune că proiectul a început cu faptul că sa întâlnit într-un club din Londra cu Adrian Delhoff, în vârstă de 60 de ani, care a dansa singur acolo, îmbrăcat în pantaloni din piele.

„M-am gândit că acest om este mai în vârstă decât tatăl meu, și cât de cool ca el este acum la club, și nu acasa uitanduse la televizor, presărat cu firimituri de la prajituri“, – spune fotograful. Primul portret din serie a fost făcut acasă la acest om.

„Am început să fotografiez oamenii în vârstă care fac această lume mai distractivă și mai bună – oameni care nu îmbătrânesc niciodată!”, Spune Vidler.

„John G. Byrne has been a skinhead since 1969 when he was 13 years old. He’s really well known by skinheads all around the world. He’s a photographer and has a great archive of skinhead pictures, especially of gay skinheads – he was one of the first openly gay skins. He pops up in almost anything you read about the history of the sub-culture.”

Adrian Delgoffe. Muir says: „I met Adrian Delgoffe, dancing by himself wearing leather pants and a leather harness. He was then in his early 60’s, older than my Dad, and I thought it was cool that he was at Love Muscle rather than at home covered in biscuit crumbs, wedged into an armchair in front of the TV.”

„Paul ‘Elvis’ Chan used to own Gracelands Palace Chinese Restaurant on the Old Kent Rd in Peckham – the Las Vegas of London. He used to perform there most nights and it was always fun when he did. The Elvis lifestyle took it’s toll on him, so now he’s retired and the restaurant is closed down.”
