Regular Lifelounge readers undoubtedly would be familiar with her vast catalog of work but for those who need an introduction, British photographer Janette Beckman began her career as a social photographer, documenting the rise of the early Brit punk scene in the 1970s while working for both The Face and Melody maker magazine. During that time she photographed the various emerging subcultures in the punk, skinhead, ska and rockabilly scenes of London. For most of the 80s she was located in NY and became one of the prominent photographer of the pioneers of Hip Hop at the time. (for samples of this work please visit The Breaks post we did a few years back)

The following images are a collection of photos Janette tooke between 1976 and 1982 in the UK featuring many familiar faces like the Specials, Sex Pistols, The Jam , Debbie Harry as well as some of the local characters of the time. For more information on Janette and her works please visit www.janettebeckman.com
