Dancing Queens & Belly Kings

Pin It

Germany in the 80s. Not exactly Sex & Drugs & Rocknroll. More like Schnaps, Moustache & Michael Jackson. The photographer Reinhard Krause captured the drabness and humour of the Ruhrpott, a region up to it's neck in the muddy waters of Germany's first industrial crisis. I love these pics, as they remind me of my teenage years: torn between "Beat It" and "Highway to Hell", trying to make sense of the boring madness that surrounded me.
