Photographers Karen Knorr and Olivier Richon have produced a new book documenting the London Punk scene from 1976 to 1977. Available in a limited edition run of 1,000, PUNKS features 80 pages of images alongside an accompanying essay by the duo.
Rather than shooting their subjects unaware, Knorr and Richon enaged directly with young Punks, asking them to play up to the camera and interact. Describing the process, Knorr reflects: "our starting point was to get away from the candid photography strategy of the invisible but hit and run photographer...we chose a direct confrontation with our subject." The images were first exhibited at The Photographers' Gallery in 1978, before being exhibited as part of Another London at the Tate Britain in 2012.
PUNKS is available via GOST Books now.

Based in Amy’s home borough of Camden, the exhibition will run from September 12th - 6th October 2013. ‘For You I Was A Flame’ follows on from the hugely successful ‘Family Portrait’ exhibition held at the London Jewish Museum, with both exhibitions created in close collaboration with Amy’s family and the Amy Winehouse Foundation. The foundation is using the hashtag #Amys30 to share pictures from the events, which can be used on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

East London blog Spitalfields Life recently featured the work of Bob Mazzer, an Aldgate local who used his late-night commute as an opportunity to photograph the colourful scenarios he encountered on the city's underground.
The collection of photographs ranges from the everyday to the absurd, with Bob reflecting; “you don’t think you are starting a project, but one day you look back over your recent pictures and there are a dozen connected images, and you realise it is the beginning of a project – and then you fall in love with it.”
