Welcome to Skinstreet, the first book published on the skin head subculture since 1982. After the success of “Amplified Youth”, an amazing reportage on the indie scene and the new rock ‘n roll fever, Angelo Sindaco continues to dig into the roughest faults of modernity. The challenge, this time, is in the controversial, usually demonized, world of the shaved heads. A former skinhead himself, Angelo Sindaco rivisits his past through the eye of the camera and immortalizes one of the most esoteric tribes of our time. “A world apart”, tells the author, “hard to approach”. Radical, too, is the code required of the adepts. It Starts with the initiation rite of shaving; boots, leather jackets and heavy tattoos complete the dress-code of these urban warriors that, since the Sixties, have remained true to their roots in the white working class.This phenomenon ends under the lights of the mediatic circus: on the catwalks and the fashion magazines. But the “gonzos” of the most fleeting and indomitable counter-culture doesn’t surrender to the tempations of the showbusiness. On the contrary, they continue to protectively foster their identity, avoiding all sorts of contaminations. Hard and pure until the end. Through the eye of Angelo Sindaco, it will be possible to discover them in their extreme and unsettling habitat. An alien dimension inhabited by secular “krishnas”, devoted to resistance. This is not a political book, it does not celebrate violence. Skinstreet is an iconoclast lifestyle book, a fashion book, a subculture book and a photography book all in one.
