A collection of Hedi Slimane's photographs taken in the UK between 2005 and 2010.
Hedi Slimane began taking photographs long before he started making clothes, as "Anthology of a Decade" reveals: "I've always taken pictures," he told former "Interview" magazine editor Ingrid Sischy, "almost like some people take notes or write down their thoughts." This volume collects black-and-white photographs taken in the UK between 2005 and 2010. It was during these years that Slimane brought to men's fashion an androgynous rock verve that influenced couture worldwide. This book includes photographs of fans at gigs, images from Slimane's "British Youth" series, portraits of James Jagger, Pete Doherty, Amy Winehouse, Kate Moss, Miles Kane, Arctic Monkeys, Test Icicles, The Paddingtons, The Libertines, These New Puritans, The Kills, Keith Richard's guitar collection, and the gravestone of William Blake.
