the romper stomper series the first complete edition

When Romper Stomper exploded onto cinema screens in 1992, it unleashed more than just a storm of controversy and critical debate. Russell Crowe’s remarkable performance as skinhead leader Hando drew international attention, and proved to be a major breakthrough role for an actor who has since gone on to become one of the most respected and popular talents in film today.

The Romper Stomper Series, a project initially conceived by photographer Peter Leiss on first reading the film script, and executed during filming, stands today as a fascinating study of this unique film and the extraordinary characters that inhabited it. This collection is an extremely powerful and significant fine art series in its own right.
