Iain McKell's revered ‘Sub Culture’ book focuses on the UK’s 2 Tone movement during the years 1978/79. Initially intended as a self published portfolio in an edition for 1000 copies for connecting with photographic agencies and galleries only 250 were actually produced and a small number of these were sold to the public through the legendary Claire de Rouen in London at that time. The rest then sat in Iain's archive while the few in circulation garnered cult status in the secondary market trading from dealer to collector.
Sub Culture features shots taken on day trips to Southend, the streets of East and North London, a squat in Kings Cross and at the cult clothing shop 'The Last Resort' on Brick Lane. Thirty six years after its initial publication the remaining archive copies were repackaged with a signed bromide print.
