Nick Knight's debut publication presents an unflinching vision of skinhead culture. A reaction to the Hippie lifestyle of the sixties and seventies, and strongly influenced by Mods and Jamaican rude boys, the skinhead movement itself was started in the mid-sixties by working-class youths in England. Knight immersed himself in their world and was able to create a genuine portrait of the youth subculture in the early eighties.
The book features both written and visual musings on the style, music and behaviour that came to define the movement. The now-iconic Skinhead has become an essential fashion reference which helps to contextualise Nick Knight's artistic and photographic trajectory.
