MORTAL REMAINS BY ANTHONY TURNERSKU: BK-396 BOOK MORTAL REMAINS
“Mortal Remains is a blunt and honest look at beauty through the eye of the beholder, through the lens of a ferocious youth movement which is completely reshaping our social structure.”
Mortal Remains is a new zine from hair stylist Anthony Turner, taking the radical youth culture of now as its subject. All the subjects in the images are either Insta-cast, or friends of Anthony’s or photographer Sarah Piantadosi’s.
Anthony says, ‘The zine is a documentation of youth today, a full spectrum of individuals who represent themselves in the most honest way they can. The aim of Mortal Remains is to capture the essence of a radical movement in youth culture without reference to a time gone by. I wanted it to be about now!!! We are undergoing the biggest youth quake in decades when inclusivity is winning a very long and arduous battle and it’s these incredible kids that are paving the way. These individuals range from non-binary to people of colour to transgender, gay, bi, pink, yellow, blue and green. I also wanted to represent young people who live through their subculture beliefs, everything from goths to cosplay to performance artists. Mortal Remains is a blunt and honest look at beauty through the eye of the beholder, through the lens of a ferocious youth movement which is completely reshaping our social structure. It’s subcultures, people of alternative lifestyles, as well as people from every spectrum of gender and sexual orientation.’
