Lort Nok

LORT NOK IS DANISH FOR
'SHIT ENOUGH', IT IS
'KONTROL' BACKWARDS,
AND IT IS THE TITLE OF A
SUPER GOOD 1981
SUPERBOOK OF DENMARK'S YOUTH. IT IS MORE THAN
SHIT ENOUGH FOR US!

To see it is to want it badly. The first true superbook of 2014 has been (re)discovered. Lort Nok by Soren Svendsen. It is Shit Enough. It is also good enough to be considered in the same class as Max Natkiels ' Paradiso Stills, Punk by Salvador Costa or Derek Ridgers' When We Were Young .
 
Svendsen was asked by his publisher to go to London and photograph punks. He said no and stayed in Denmark to record the home grown youth culture. It is what makes the book so special - not everyone is aligned to a specific movement - some are just trilby wearing peanut lovers!
 
And then there is the Burger King! Very rarely has such an ordinary looking individual appeared so completely amazing! As well as being a great photograph, it is also fantastic double page. The book is big on double pages.
 
Danish skinheads or David Bowie's alien offspring from The Man Who Fell To Earth ? Yes please to his jacket - the sleeve really is out of this world!
 
And this may well be our favourite photograph. A ten woman line up of Danish Princess Diana lookalikes. We'd go far left as the obvious winner. Of course, they were all winners really: they didn't have to marry Charles. See more of this amazing book on this link.
