Pomeriggio, spulciando tra gli scaffali della biblioteca vicino casa, sezione fotografia, ho trovato questo, singolare retrospettiva del fotografo inglese Gavin Watson, ritratto new wave della giovane e ribelle classe operaia inglese

Gavin Watson grew up in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, photographing the people he knew and the gangs they hung out with. In his latest book Skins and Punks, Watson captures two of the country’s most iconic subcultures as they come to life in the dreary climate of 1980s Britain. As This is England director Shane Meadows comments in the foreword, ‘What makes Gavin’s photos so special is that when you look at them, there’s clearly trust from the subject towards the photographer so it feels like you’re in the photo rather than just observing’.
