In his astonishing photo gallery, Gavin Watson documented the identity of the first skinheads in Britain. Perhaps surprisingly, they had nothing to do with the neo-nazi movement. The generation of skinheads that emerged in the 60s was different in its dressing style and music taste. They were really no different in terms of any other counterculture such as the punk, rock or reggae movements of that time. British skinheads were definitely one part of the New Wave and Watson’s documentary photographs represent this social period very realistically. The photographic is called Skins. This is probably one of his most important records in the career of this London-based photographer.
