In total 5 issues of Uppercase were published from 1958 – 1962 by Whitefriars Press. Approx 14cm x 18cm
Although editor Theo Crosby, is best remembered for setting up the Pentagram architectural practice, prior to that he was instrumental in curating shows at the ICA and most famously This Is Tomorrow at the Whitechapel Gallery 1956 – which not only helped launch the careers of Richard Hamilton and Eduardo Paolozzi – but also establish pop-art as a new art “ism”.
The final issue of Uppercase, featured 50+ pages of Roger Manes seminal street photography taken on Southam Street in Lambeth. Although many of these images are now famous and have been used on album and book covers, this really was ground breaking in terms of reportage photography. Also an influence on Michelangelo Antonioni’s film Blow Up.
