RENNIE (UNBELIEVABLY GOOD) ELLIS. AUSTRALIA'S FINEST MOST PROLIFIC SOCIAL DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHER. A SEX CRAZED MARTIN PARR AND ALL THE BETTER FOR IT! NEVER EVER HAS ANYONE MADE SUCH FINE USE OF SUNSHINE. AND THIS BOOK - DECADENT 1980-2000. JUST A COMPLETE UNABASHABLE CELEBRATION OF LIFE. 


The gold standard. The 1980-2000 Decadent book. Published in 2014. Already super scarce - if for no other reason than we have bought and sold most of them :)
It is a book everyone should own. And if that is no longer possible, at least have a very good long look at the pictures. 
 

IDEA on Instagram favourite photograph No.1.
 

IDEA on Instagram favourite photograph No.2. We mean, really, three cigs, a drink and the oil tucked in the tangas. Rennie Ellis makes the sun shine!
 

Just like this photograph too much. Pinch and zoom if looking on your phone, the girl in the dungarees cigarette isn't lit but instinctively she knows how to adopt the world weary / world wary look of the smoker. 
 

And you know... too many easy jokes... we'd rather just marvel at the freedom of this. 
 

Admit it. You were this young once too. And you miss it. 
 

Second from left. Coolest person in the whole double decade book. 
 

Correct that. Second coolest person in the whole double decade book. Like WOW! Like HOW!
 

Love this too but now we're just showing off about how great this book is. We have to underline the point - Rennie Ellis really was seriously good. More bikini line than front line in his dispatches, sure, but wherever there was fun in the sun, there he was in the middle of it. 
 

The man himself. Pretty sure he'd asked her to hold his stomach in. The picture makes us smile. He didn't even take it. Surely a sign of a great, great photographer :)

OK! Let's buy it. Your new favourite book. A block of gold on the button below.
