Frank Habicht's iconic black-and-white photographs reflect the spirit of the Swinging Sixties in London. After the conservative post-war years followed a period of upheaval, with the younger generation dreaming of an unconstrained life, one full of free love, peace, and harmony. On the streets of the British capital, Habicht (*1938, Hamburg) began photographing the profound social and political changes that occurred in Great Britain in the sixties.Habicht, who has lived in New Zealand since 1981, has produced photographs for magazines and newspapers such as the The Guardian, Die Welt, Camera Magazine, and Twen. His photographs were recently exhibited at the Barbican in London. He has made portraits of music and film greats such as Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones, Jane Birkin, Christopher Lee, and Vanessa Redgrave. This opulent book is a unique collection of the swinging, groovy, hippie, and psychedelic Sixties in London. It offers an eye-opening contribution to the history of a country that is currently undergoing yet more social transformation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
As It Was is Habicht's treasure-chest of the swinging, groovy, hippie, and psychedelic Sixties in London. It offers an eye-opening contribution to the history of a country that is currently undergoing yet more social transformation. This photo book features his iconic work and many images published for the first time.--Katy Cowan "Creative Boom "
[Habicht's] practice would take him from protests to private parties, from markets to mansions, from film sets to festivals and back again, as he captured the zeitgeist for magazines around the world.--Allyssia Alleyne "CNN "
...a new generation of bright young things put the 1960s in full swing. Flush with a freedom, a new style, sound, and attitude swept the world. It was the British Invasion, and Habicht was poised at the centre of the storm.--Sara Rosen "Huck "
