A photographic study of youth tribes between 1977 and 1982 by British photographer Chris Wroblewski and French photographer Nelly Gommez-Vaez. A masterpiece of punk rock and youth culture, City Indians aims to draw a comparison between contemporary subcultures and ancient native tribes thought its influences on hairstyles, tattoos, piercings and fashion.

 

“As the western armies and cultures marched in and took over the civilizations of the east, the displaced and unwanted ceremonies, rituals and modes of dress quietly graduated and entrenched themselves in the west in return.
Just as our museums and galleries are cramped with the looted remnants of vanished civilizations so too are our streets and inner cities brimming with the evidence of a tribal past.”
