Welcome to Skinstreet, the first book published on the skinhead subculture since 1982. After the success of Amplified Youth, a stunning reportage on the indie scene and the new rock’n’roll fever, Angelo Sindaco continues to dig into the roughest faults of modernity in his latest book. A former skinhead himself, the author revisits his past with a camera and stunningly immortalises one of the most esoteric tribes of our time.
The journey covers every facet of skinhead culture: head shaving, boots, leather jackets and heavy tattoos; the dress-code of these fascinating urban warriors that, since the Sixties, have remained true to their roots in the white working class.
A notorious subculture
This phenomenon ends under the lights of the media-circus: on the catwalks and the fashion magazines. The members of the most fleeting and indomitable counter-culture do not surrender to the temptations of show business and continue to foster their unique identity. Through the piercing lens of Angelo Sindaco, it is possible to discover them in their extreme and authentic habitat. This is not a book about politics, it does not celebrate violence. Skinstreet uses vivid photography to document the fashion and iconoclast lifestyle of one of the world’s most notorious subcultures.
