This Summer you might be luckily enough to be heading away for a relaxing holiday. Chances are you’ll probably get there via the airport, the one-stop hub for all your earthbound transit needs. If you’re really pushing the boat out this vacation however, and have booked a lakeside villa on Naboo or a furry spa-retreat on Kashyyk, then we recommend you travel from the Imperial Starport in Germany. We do advise you to be wary as we have reports of heavy military presence on the ground.
Horst Friedrichs was born in Frankfurt and studied at the Munich Academy of Photography. His book, 20th-Century Mods, follows the contemporary British Mod scene. We asked him how he first became interested in it: ‘In the 80s, my friends in Germany were Mods so when I moved to London 1997, I was curious about the Mod scene in the UK. After a bit of research, I discovered The New Untouchables, sophisticated and stylish Mod people who share a true love of quality vintage and 60s music. I started to go to their club nights and scooter runs to photograph them’. Read the rest of this interview at Feature Shoot.
