With their tattoos, leather jackets, slicked-back hair, and beloved British motorbikes Rockers are the nemesis and antithesis of the fastidiously groomed Mods. Elvis, James Dean and Marlon Brando made rocker style synonymous with rebellion, sparking a global cult. Friedrichs follows the British rocker tribe as its members congregate in parking lots, pubs, cafes, dance and pool halls, as well as huge gatherings at Jacks Hill and Ace Cafe.
Horst A. Friedrichs was born in Frankfurt in 1966. He graduated from the Munich Film Academy and, since 1990, has worked as a free-lance photojournalist for clients such as Geo, Stern, Merian, Der Spiegel, Die Zeit and The New York Times. He has travelled extensively and worked in Venezuela, Pakistan, Mali, Japan and many other regions.
In 1997, Friedrichs moved to London where he now lives and works. Friedrichs' pictures have been shown at exhibitions in England, Austria, Germany, Morocco and Greece. Friedrichs has been represented by the Anzenberger Agency since 2005.
