Virginia Turbett

United Kingdom


Virginia Turbett's photographs captured a wealth of musical, social and cultural images from the period covering Punk, Rock, Pop, Heavy Metal, New Romantics, skinheads, Two-Tone, Ska, Reggae and the fans, style and fashion. She created images of world-famous artists like the Sex Pistols, The Clash, Debbie Harry, Iggy Pop, Prince as well as celebrities like Andy Warhol and political figures of the time. In December 1981, The Face magazine ran a spread called “Punk Rock: 5 Years On.” Virginia was sent out into the field to photograph/interview any punks she came across. Her photographs of that era document a radically changing and exciting time in the music industry.
