Skinhead [Nowegian Skinhead Photobook]

Price: $125.00


Number 70 of 300 printed. Wraps, 17 by 23.8 cm, [86] pp. Very good with light cover wear and something blacked out (probably a price) near the bottom edge of the front cover. If there’s one thing we know about skins, they love photobooks. In some ways this volume is quite typical of these photobooks, which have been around since at least the early 1980s, with photos of bands, tattoos, skins in candid shots, and skinheads posing in their moonstomping best. What is unusual is that very little comes out of the Norwegian skinhead scene, and that speaks to the rarity of this book. My rough translation of the back cover: “Skinheads are a youth culture that has often been associated with political ideas and nationalism. But the saying ‘not all go under the same comb’ has probably never been more appropriate. Even with this stamp from the media and other ignorant people, the music, the clothes, and camaraderie has survived more than 40 years. This book portrays skinheads through images, which are taken by someone who has experienced the environment himself.”
