Molly Macindoe's brilliant photographic account of the free party scene is back in stock! Molly has revamped the book, which has a new cover and is now a slightly smaller format than the original. It's a hardback and has about 70 new pictures.
Out Of Order is the culmination of ten years of Molly Macindoe's work documenting the underground Free Party and Teknival scene. It is a testament to her 'sincere passion for the Free Party scene' a unique sub-culture that to her 'felt like home' the moment she walked into her first rave. ﾠHer photography has always been inspired by the beauty to be found in the people and events of the Free Party scene, and subsequently reflects that same sentiment. ﾠ
Controversial in its revisionist attitude, Macindoe's work is a visual attack on the culture of voyeuristic sensationalism found in the mainstream media. She chooses to portray a very personal narrative with a positive outlook, from a true insider's perspective. She is redressing the balance, and in the process is producing a work that is more than just an art book, but a social documentary of valuable historical and academic interest. This book sparks a debate on the issue of social responsibility in documentary photography, provoking thought on the further consequences of published work and the ethics of the profession.ﾠ
Out of Order is an art book for public appreciation, a personal narrative, and a visual archive of a sub-culture for academia.ﾠThe four hundred plus photographs are accompanied by a dual narrative text that describes the parallel stories of both the photographer and the underground rave scene, written by musicologist and journalist Caroline Stedman MA Bsc.
'The images contained within summon you into the party like a slow motion glitch in the mainframe, where you can smell the rave and feel the bass. Molly's work annihilates the media's lazy, generic stock image portrayal of the scene and successfully represents one of the most important movements of our time.' A raver's tribute.
