In response to the success of the all colour photographs in Locals Only, this new volume of Hugh Holland's focuses only on his black and white images of the same 1970s skateboarding subculture in Southern California.
This book features iconic photographs of 1970s Southern California skateboarding culture by photographer Hugh Holland. This never-before-published collection showcases his black-and-white photographs of young skateboarders sidewalk surfing the streets of Los Angeles. Holland documents a drought-ridden 1970s Southern California replete with an abundance of empty swimming pools available for trespassing skateboarders to practice their tricks in. From suburban backyard haunts to the asphalt streets that connected them, this was the place that inspired the legendary Dogtown and Z-Boys skateboarders. With their requisite bleached blonde hair, tanned bodies, tube socks and Vans, these young outsiders are masterfully captured against a sometimes harsh but always sunny Southern California landscape.
Hugh Holland is a Los Angeles based photographer and author of Locals Only. He is represented by M+B gallery in Los Angeles.
"The gorgeous black-and-white photos collected in Hugh Holland's Silver. Skate. Seventies. capture the long summer evening of skateboarding's adolescence, a momentary sense of freedom from gravity, just before it rocketed into the cultural stratosphere." --Los Angeles Magazine
