THE IMPORTANTS

PHAIDON

THE IMPORTANTS

The much-anticipated first book by photographer Kevin Amato, a fashion insider whose influence is felt around the world. Through his photography, Amato celebrates the faces of the Bronx, where he discovers the majority of his subjects. He calls them 'The Importants', the young people thriving against all odds and who together exemplify diversity and inclusivity. Amato documents a new world order that is as provocative as it is tender, and as disturbing as it is joyful.

Printed and bounded in China. Produced in London and New York Headquarters.

"[A] delightfully gaudy, bright gold volume that is part retrospective of his work, part mood board, and part bible of youth culture." —Highsnobiety
