SKINHEADS

Introduction

Back in 1995 I met a group of skinheads on the ferry between Sweden and Finland. Skinheads were considered the most provocative youth culture ever; particularly back then in the middle of the 1990’s when the skinheads had a tendency to get spectacular headlines in media. The young men at the ferry made me curious and I wanted to know who they were. I approached them and they started to tell me about their subculture. Back home in Stockholm I met up with them again and they introduced me to other skinheads. I started to bring my camera and those first encounters were the beginning of a ten year long journey of photographic documentation and an in-depth study of the subculture.
