78-87: London Youth

Derek Ridgers 

"As time passes, this kind of observational photography attains a new importance, becoming a kind of visual anthropology of a bygone era. In this context, Ridgers's adherence to a kind of democratic detachment – the person who was "constantly on the margins with a camera" – seems even more astute even if, as he insists, it was utterly instinctive. Nothing is imposed here; he simply stands back and observes." - Sean O'Hagan
