At the age of two, Chris Steele-Perkins, along with his father moved to England from Burma. After school I studied psychology at Newcastle University. In 1970 he received a diploma and the following year began working as a freelance photographer in London. Worked mainly in England, covered the social problems of British cities, full of different subcultures.

In 1979, the photographer published the photo book "The Teds". The book has received wide publicity because it covered current issues – life of young people and emerging new subculture. Steele-Perkins talks about his projects: "It may be nonsense, but I like to think that if in 50 years people will want to look at the teenage culture of the late twentieth century, "The Teds" will be in the list of books that they will watch". In the same year, Steele-Perkins comes into the Magnum, soon began to work in the developing countries of Africa and Central America, while not stopping their activities in the UK. In 1982, together with a team of photographers "EXIT", has published the book "survival Program".

At the moment, the photographer continues to work in the UK. A significant part of his work is devoted to the native land, its inhabitants and their problems. On account of his more than 10 books, including the famous "Tokyo Love Hello", which many consider a sample of street photography. Below collection of photos Chris Steele-Perkins, from different series.
