Offering a photographic view of an urban Swiss subculture, Karlheinz Weinberger’s Rebel Youth takes book lovers for a walk on Zurich’s wild side in the 1960s.
A warehouse worker by day, Weinberger led a double life documenting the unconventional street styles of juvenile delinquents, biker gangs, and gay youths. Influenced by the defiant personas of Elvis Presley and James Dean, the young subjects flaunt homegrown fashions and hipster hairdos to convey individualist attitudes, while still running with a pack.
