HALBSTARK BABY-BABY HALBSTARK! Teenage Street Gangs In Switzerland 1962-1972 Through the Eyes Of Dieter Ehrlich  250 pages hardcover, stitched Smyth bound, glossy stock! Years in the making - it's here at last. This gorgeous book features the scrapbook images of gang member/photographer Dieter "Igel" Ehrlich, featuring his years with delinquent gangs, boozing in their hang-out coffee bars, out on the streets in full regalia- chains, jackets, hair, boots and wild fashion flare to boot. Included is a first time history of the noxious Swiss gangs and a detailed listing of the gangs from cities across the country- the Red Devils, the Express Killers, the Black Star Gang, Vampirs, Venom, the Lions, the Pumas, Torpedo gang and loads more -- all known gangs are accounted for. Introduction by Igel Ehrlich and Lukas Muller. ISBN 9781940157191

 

** We are delighted to announce teaming up with the Consulate General of Switzerland who will sponsor a celebration of the Halbstark book with a show and party of photographs at NYC's Frosch & Co Gallery in June. Stay tuned!
