Photographer Julie Howden documents Scottish sub-culture phenomenon, in particular, recently, the resurgence in the clothes, accessories, style and sounds of the 1950s when teddy boys and girls and the emergence of rock and roll defined teen culture. Drape jackets, drainpipe trousers, zoot suits, brogues and brothel creepers epitomised the era.
 
Howden captures those who embrace this period within contemporary lifestyle in beautiful colour images, exhibiting their possessions – clothing, jewellery, records and even a “B” movie amongst the portraits.
