Lucian Hendrickse Centre Spread R.a.D Issue 58

Lucian Hendrickse Centre Spread R.a.D Issue 58“Lucian Hendrickse, Reverse Sad Eggplant, Brighton, October 1987” says the caption. This would have been a skater’s choice, not a photographer’s one. I would have ignored this as too dark and moody. Just as well that the skater-viewpoint always won the day.
One for the obsessives: note that the R.a.D logo on the centre spread is still the original “Read and Destroy” version although it had been banned from the cover, to placate the distributors, by this point.
