In 2001 a book was published predominantly for the Japanese market consisting of 500 35mm slides taken during the filming of Rockers in 1977. Much like hip-hop has a golden era of the late 80's early 90's, reggae too has a golden age of the 70's. The antithesis coming in 1979 with the premiere of Rockers at the Cannes Film Festival. I think what makes golden eras so special is that nothing is contrived. It all feels so new, fresh, and innovative.
Here are a few beautiful images from the incredibly rare Rockers Style by Cherry Kaoru Hulsey, wife of the film's producer Patrick Hulsey. So much great inspiration in these photographs. A huge thanks to Rest Store for having the only available copies I've seen in America.
