JAMES DEAN



Vintage shopping today I came across this 1987 copy of 'James Dean : photography by his friend Sanford Roth' and its simply beautiful

"In James Dean, today's youth discovers itself. Less for the reasons usually advanced: violence, sadism, hysteria, pessimism, cruelty and filth than for others, more simple and commonplace: modesty of feeling, continual fantasy life, moral purity without relation to everyday morality (but all the more rigorous), the eternal adolescent love of tests and trials, intoxication, pride and regret at feeling oneself outside of society, refusal and desire to become integrated and finally, acceptance or refusal of the world as it is." - Francois Truffaut
