Photographer Horst A. Friedrichs

Introduction and Interviews by 
Professor Colin Fallows 

Following the great success of “Or Glory – 21st Century Rockers“, the acclaimed German photographer Horst A. Friedrichs concentrates on an extraordinary design classic: the leather motorcycle jacket, which developed in the 1950s from being merely functional outerwear to become the blazing symbol of the era’s youth revolt. James Dean wore one, as did Marlon Brando and Dennis Hopper. Since then, the myth has continued to flourish, so that, to this day, leather jackets are one of the few outfits with true cult status. They have soul. They have character and they are worn with pride; they are painted, embellished, embroidered and enhanced with studs and patches. Since decades, Lewis Leathers, the  legendary British manufactory for leather motorcycle jackets, has brought together especially attractive and exceptional examples for their unique and comprehensive collection of vintage leather jackets. The artistic photos by Horst A. Friedrichs make these available to the larger public for the first time and provide authentic insight into this highly exceptional lifestyle.


Nach dem großen Erfolg von „Or Glory – 21st Century Rockers“ konzentriert sich der renommierte deutsche Fotograf Horst A. Friedrichs auf einen ungewöhnlichen Design-Klassiker: die Rocker-Lederjacke, die sich in den 1950er-Jahren vom praktischen Kleidungsstück zum Symbol der Jugendrevolte entwickelte. James Dean trug sie, Marlon Brando, Dennis Hopper. Seitdem lebt der Mythos. Bis heute gehören Lederjacken zu den wenigen Outfits mit Kultstatus. Sie haben Seele. Sie zeigen Charakter und werden mit Stolz  getragen, bemalt, verziert, bestickt, mit Nieten und Aufnähern geschmückt. Die traditionsreiche britische Lederjackenmanufaktur Lewis Leathers archiviert in seiner Lewis  Leathers-„Vintage Jacket“-Kollektion seit Jahrzehnten besonders schöne und ausgefallene Exemplare. Die künstlerischen Aufnahmen von Horst A. Friedrichs machen sie erstmals der breiten Öffentlichkeit zugänglich und geben einen authentischen Einblick in diesen ganz besonderen Lebensstil.
