    "Richard Harris - Youth Culture" Youth Culture is a photo-book portraying the lives of three youthful 'chavs'. The book explores issues of stereotype and identity in a succinct manner. The book seemingly has two sections to the book, the video interview and the photographs at the end. The first section is of the short interview with the three boys. The left hand page demonstrates the question and answers at hand on a white background, and then a full bleed screen capture from the video interview on the right hand page. This works very well in two ways. The text shown is very clear, and a vibrant spacy font is used with everything being centered making it easy on the eye for the reader. Secondly, the right hand page is full bleed which works well as a contrast to the white background of the opposite page. The second chapter of the book features double spread full bleed images of the subjects in different settings, either candid or posed. These are all well taken photographs,... More > with supposedly little to no work done on the images. They have a specific style which fits with the theme of the work. The book has an evident humour to the book. The subjects responses are funny and on the brash side of things, but it's also needed for it to be an accurate portrayal. There's no skimping at all on this project, and it shows. By definition (the lower class; uneducated and ignorant people), the 'chavs' appear to live up to their stereotype. Vandalising, smoking, drinking alcohol in the streets, all actions which fit into the stereotype. The subjects seem to be fully compliant with the photographers demands. It reminds me of the film City of God when the gang members realise the character Rocket works for the newspaper as a photographer and they demand their photo to be taken, and to be taken seriously. They are very aware of the camera, but also incredibly comfortable in front of it. Throughout the book there is an obvious desire for the book to be easily readable, which works. The book is very well structured and every page is well thought out. The page of the text at the beginning introduces the intentions of the book, and what each section will feature. The layout isn't unique, nor does it need to be; it's clear, rich, and notable.< Less
