This product is a downloadable 10 page 8″ x 10″ PDF photo eBook featuring images of the South African music scene in the mid-1980’s entitled “The Lost Years” with photography by Rogan Coles.
About this PDF book: “This collections of images is so named because, to be frank, these were indeed “lost years”. At the time when these pictures were made in the mid-1980’s, these musicians and others of that time were making some of the finest music of that era – as in world class. And yet, all this creativity and culture was “backgrounded” by various factors. Much of this work was something of antidote to the commercial photography I was doing at the time. And besides, no one was really interested in what I was doing. These were pre-Internet and social media times. All the printed media of the day had their own in-house photographers. The overseas picture agencies and the international media they were feeding were more taken up with the political upheavals of that time. Anything cultural rated zero. As a result, these images were filled away never to see the light of day – until now that is.”
