The Dark Carnival, Derek Ridgers

BOOKS & MAGAZINES

The Dark Carnival: Portraits from the Endless Night.

For anyone intrigued by street style, subculture, portrait photography and the curious human penchant for playing dress-up. This darkly fascinating collection of photographs is a celebration of night life to pore over again and again.

Derek Ridgers documented the British style and music scene as the Punk rock era began to develop in the late 1970s. A founder of the straight-up style of photography, his observational approach to photographing London’s Youth enabled him to capture skinheads, punks, ravers, goth’s and fetishists as well as every hybrid style that has developed from these various subcultures.

Ridgers has published numerous photo books on his extensive subculture archive; many of which have achieved cult-like status.

Dimensions: 285 x 235 mm
Pages: 216
Format: Hardback

  • Our Ethos

    Duality is in our DNA — our founders self-describe as polar opposites — but our vision for championing accessibility, diversity, and equality in the art world is a shared one. It informs everything we do, from the prints we sell to the stories we tell. Art is for everyone and there is no one way to be a collector.

  • Sustainability

    Although we’re not perfect, we do pride ourselves on our packaging. We use as little as possible and have worked hard to find the most environmentally-friendly packaging on the market.

    Our poster tubes and print boxes are eco-friendly, made from recycled content and fully recyclable. On occasion, to improve our carbon footprint, our prints will be shipped direct from our printers in co-branded packaging.

IN MY WORLD, THE BOOKS WOULD BE NOTHING BUT PICTURES. IN MY WORLD, THE BOOKS WOULD BE NOTHING BUT PICTURES

ECO PACKAGING


We’ve worked hard to find the most environmentally-friendly packaging on the market. Our books are wrapped in recyclable cardboard sleeves and fastened with paper-based tape. Our tape is water activated, so no need for any nasty adhesives or plastics. It’s made from 100% recycled content and printed with soy ink. 


Our print boxes and poster tubes are also made from recycled cardboard and are fully recyclable. Finally, our tissue paper is - you guessed it -recycled, eco-friendly and vegan. It's PH neutral and approximately 35% of the electrics used to make it is produced from renewable energy.


Not a bad start 🌱
