The theme of Collabor88 for it’s special 2nd Birthday event is the Roaring Twenties. This was a period in the earlier part of the 20th century often referred to as ‘the lost generation’ and ‘the generation in flames’. This was for a number of reasons, not least of which was the tragically high loss of youth to the ravages of World War One. This generation suffered doubly by going off to another Word War within their life times.
But in the between times, youth exhilarated in being alive. This was the generation that paved the way for great social, political and economic change throughout the twentieth century. This was a time when mothers despaired of their daughters antics, when jazz became alive, when hemlines raised themselves dramatically and when hair was CUT!
I have a selection of photos of items from Collabor88. The final photo is a nude, which I rarely do. You won’t be able to see it in the feeds – you will have to click on my blog link to actually see it. I apologise in advance if this offends anyone, however I am rather pleased with the result. I was aiming for an expression of exuberance in youth. I hope I hit the mark!
