We can't even go into how f**king amazing Janette Beckman's work is. We just caught her show in LA at Project Space. It was phenomenal. Her career has covered some of the most important musical movements in history - the late 70's British punk, mod and 2-Tone scenes and birth of hip hop in the early 80's in NYC.
Beckman's snapshot of Adam Ant above is one of our favorites. A very quitenessential young Ant in London, taken in 1980. Shot just before Ant-Mania was about to break in the UK and beyond.
Do yourself a favor and check out Beckman's other work. She's got two great books out there as well that are worh picking up.
