Product description

INSCRIBED 'To Nick, Time has creative power, All the best, Gavin Watson

Perhaps one of the most reviled yet misunderstood of all the youth subcultures, the skinhead look and lifestyle has now rightly returned to the very forefront of contemporary youth culture. While celebrities and sportsmen shave their heads for the red carpet, the underbelly of British youth culture has rediscovered the look via acclaimed films such as 2007's award-winning This Is England . The look is now more fashionable than it has ever been. The single most important photographic record of this unique subculture is Gavin Watson's Skins , now proudly released as a brand new edition on Independent Music Press, complete with over 30 new and previously unpublished photographs. The scores of black and white shots offer a fascinating glimpse into a skinhead community that was multi-cultural, tightly knit and above all else, fiercely proud of their look. These are classic photographs of historical value.
