@ojharv here posting on the LensCulture account. This portrait is of a young skinhead girl in Hackney, England called Mykie. This picture is taken from my series “Skins & Suedes.” The skinhead style was often seen as an aggressive way of presenting yourself by the media, with short hair, rolled up jeans and footwear often referred to as “bovver boots.” The distinct skinhead look went on to be adopted by neo-nazis and various other racist groups and many original skinheads felt it was time to abandon their style, due to negative associations.
