George Plemper - A Moment in Time

We recently came across the work of photographer George Plemper, whose A Moment in Time series captures British youth culture in the late 70s and early 80s. The documentary project is largely set around the estates and community centres of Woolwich and Thamesmead, with the photographer shooting hundreds of portraits of the young people he encountered day to day.

Speaking of the project, George mentions that he wasn't originally sure what to do with the images, admitting that his "negatives and photographs sat mouldering in the back of my garage for 30 years before the wonders of the digital age allowed me to rescue them." The series has received a brilliant response on photo-sharing site flickr, as well as being mentioned on several blogs.
