Al Vandenberg : On A Good Day


Released in May, the book On a Good Day by Al Vandenberg and published by Stanley / Barker in partnership with Eric Franck Fine Art  .

Perhaps best known as a collaborator on the legendary Beatles album cover for Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Al Vandenberg’s first monograph ‘On a Good Day’ brings together his London street portraits from the 1970 — 80’s capturing the decades, the style, mood and tone.
In his afterward for the book Martin Barnes, Senior Curator of the V&A, notes that ‘Vandenberg sees all this with a sincere and perceptive eye and a sensitive understanding of character, regardless of social standing and cultural background… Every picture in this book is imbued with a positive, uplifting intention. He was gifted with somehow being able to strike a rapport with, and feel empathy for, his subjects almost instantly.

‘It’s a great time being young, with your whole life ahead of you. It’s a time for love, hope, dreaming, great creativity. It’s a time away from home, breaking free from parents, home, creating freedom. You feel you can be anything and do anything. The future looks very positive.’ – Al Vandenberg
