Since the early 1970s, Iain McKell has been photographing every corner of British society - from supermodels to shopkeepers, Mods to Rockers, gypsies to the gentry, from cosy bed and breakfasts, kiss-me-quick hats and saucy seaside postcards to squalid squats, urban wastelands and rural raves. McKell's camera has captured Britain's diverse people in all their eccentric and theatrical glory. Featuring an interview with the photographer, this book traverses the full expanse of McKell's career, including images from his acclaimed collections, Fashion Forever and The New Gypsies and many never before published images. Whether in black and white or brilliant colour, the people of Great Britain have never seemed so great, glamorous, gaudy - and beautiful. Includes an essay by William Oliver.
