As It Was: Frank Habicht's Sixties

Edited with text by Florian Habicht. Text by Heather Cremonesi, Valerie Mendes.

"Fine arts student, St. Martin’s College, Holborn," is reproduced from 'As It Was: Frank Habicht's Sixties.'

Young London, permissive paradise: Habicht’s images capture the uninhibited spirit of the 1960s

The iconic black-and-white photographs of Hamburg-born photographer Frank Habicht (born 1938) reflect the spirit of the Swinging Sixties in London. In the 1960s, the conservative postwar years in England gave way to a period of upheaval, with a younger generation dreaming of an unconstrained life, one full of free love, peace and harmony. On the streets of the British capital, Habicht began photographing the profound social and political changes that were underway.

Habicht, who has lived in New Zealand since 1981, has produced photographs for many international magazines and newspapers, such as the Guardian, Die Welt, Camera Magazine and Twen. His photographs were recently exhibited at the Barbican in London, and he has made portraits of music and film greats such as Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones, Jane Birkin, Christopher Lee and Vanessa Redgrave.

Frank Habicht: As It Was collects Habicht’s photos from the 1960s in an opulent book. A unique collection of images of the swinging, groovy, hippie and psychedelic ‘60s in London, it offers an eye-opening contribution to the history of a country that is currently undergoing yet more social transformation.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Creative Boom

Katy Cowan

As It Was is Habicht’s treasure-chest of the swinging, groovy, hippie, and psychedelic Sixties in London. It offers an eye-opening contribution to the history of a country that is currently undergoing yet more social transformation. This photo book features his iconic work and many images published for the first time.

CNN

Allyssia Alleyne

[Habicht's] practice would take him from protests to private parties, from markets to mansions, from film sets to festivals and back again, as he captured the zeitgeist for magazines around the world.

Huck

Sara Rosen

...a new generation of bright young things put the 1960s in full swing. Flush with a freedom, a new style, sound, and attitude swept the world. It was the British Invasion, and Habicht was poised at the centre of the storm.

Ahh, the freedom in Frank Habicht's Sixties

Ahh, the freedom in Frank Habicht's Sixties

Featured image, captioned "Live it to the hilt — Renee, Westminster Bridge, 1968" is reproduced from As It Was: Frank Habicht's Sixties, the only book in print on the adventurous German photographer who captured London in all its rapturous, hairy, experimental glory during the swinging sixties. Carnaby Street, student carnivals, reluctant debutantes, street kids, flea markets and plenty of models, friends and celebrities in various states of dress all make appearances in beautiful black-and-white. "I captured London without its traditional landmarks while searching for what happened behind the scenes," Habicht writes. "Looking for what hides behind the human soul, observing the contradictions, absurdities, the abstract, the surreal, the mystical, the frailties, being astounded by life's complexities, juxtaposing and blurring reality and fantasy, capturing togetherness, despair, rebellion, isolation, joy and sadness, surrounded by beauty and drama." continue to blog
