Ken Russell, In Your Dreams (1955)
Ken Russell's portrait of 14 year old Jean Rayner, taken in 1955, shows us a defiant young woman, a bombsite Boudicca standing on the ruins of post-war London.
From his series "The Last of the Teddy Girls".. these girls possessed an iconoclastic, independent attitude to style. Wearing velvet-collared jackets and jeans, they rejected society's expectations of more traditional, feminine roles.
This is an open edition, produced by TopFoto. A silver gelatin hand print, stamped by Robin Bell, Russell's preferred printer during his lifetime.
