Ken Russell Photographs

Some wonderful photographs by Ken Russell taken in the 1950s of Teddy Girls from a 2005 artilce in UK’s “Amateur Photographer.”

I saw these photographs a few years ago and recently again on BoingBoing who referenced Cosey Fanni Tutti of Throbbing Gristle fame.

Ken Russell directed the films: “Women in Love,” ” The Devils,” ” Tommy,” and “Altered States.”  Russell died recently at the age of 84.
