In 1958, Weinberger met members of a small band of teenagers and began photographing them both at his home, as well as public parks and fairgrounds where the group gathered. They were Swiss rebels! They adopted a powerful gang identity of embellished jeans, motorcycle jackets and enlarged belt buckles. The fashion crowd loves this. Many stylists and designers have looked to Weinberger’s photos for inspiration. The Swiss Institute /Contemporary Art in Soho is showing these wonderful photos. I was very happy to learn about Karlheinz Weinberger and be in the know! A Rebel with a Cause!
