Visible Girls Q&A

Conversation with Anita Corbin and Squasher

In 1981, photographer Anita Corbin captured pivotal “coming of age” moments in the life of 56 young women – all members of different subcultural tribes: Skins, Mods, Punks, Rockabillies, New Romantics, Rastas and young lesbians. The result was an extraordinary collection of double portraits that represented sisterhood, friendship, belief and allegiance against a potent backdrop of heightened social, cultural and political change in '80s Britain. 36 years on Corbin wondered: what happened to all those women who were so dedicated to their subcultural tribes? What became of their dreams and beliefs? Supported by Arts Council England, Anita has re-photographed most of the original girls using new digital technology, creating a set of images that will sit alongside the originals in this touring exhibition. It also incorporates original tape recordings with some of the girls made in 1981.

In conversation with Squasher, Visible Girl living in Bristol and Anita Corbin, Photographer talking together about making these iconic Subcultural images originally in 1981 and in 2017 for the Revisited Series.
