Bootleg Bar + Italian Food is privileged to have the works of prolific music photographer Janette Beckman line its walls.
London native Janette Beckman has made her fame photographing not only a wide array of performers in several musical genres but also the youth subcultures that have cropped up around their music. Whether it's capturing images of young punks and mods in '70s London or the b-boys and girls of New York's hip-hop scene of the '80s, her documentarian's eye has captured the culture and the style of these groups.
Among her best known photographs are the iconic front covers for the first two albums by the Police, along with portraits of artists from the Sex Pistols to Run-DMC and from Blondie to Lily Allen, among others.
"Her portraits prove that attitude never dies." Vivien Goldman, Punk Professor BBC America.
Janette Beckmans' Limited Edition photographs are available for purchase exclusively through Sydneys' Blender Gallery.
