Skinheads 1979 - 1984, Paperback

Skinheads 1979 - 1984 Paperback



"In early '79 I was already engaged in what eventually turned out to be a lengthy photographic study of the New Romantics (though back then they were not known as such).

I'd been documenting this nascent scene in the Soho nightclub 'Billy's' and, one evening, a group of about half-a-dozen skinheads turned up.

They saw me taking photographs and one of them, a guy called Wally, asked me if I'd like to take some photos of them too.

They seemed pretty friendly and not at all camera shy.

I took a few snaps, we got talking and Wally suggested I go with the whole gang on one of their Bank Holiday jaunts to the seaside.

That was what led, eventually, to five years of photographing skinheads.

In those five years I got to know some of the skinheads quite well and liked many of them." Derek Ridgers All the photos were taken between 1979 - 1984 in either London or nearby coastal towns. Over 100 photos including 32 pages of colour.
