Abrams & Chronicle Silver. Skate. Seventies. - Hugh HollandHugh Holland


The mid-‘70s was a turning point for skateboarding culture, and photographer Hugh Holland was there to capture the spirit of the developing phenomenon. Silver. Skate. Seventies. is his collection of black and white photographs depicting young skaters lost in the carefree sport, tackling makeshift ramps, concrete drains and abandoned swimming pools in pursuit of the next big move. Set against a backdrop of sun-scorched SoCal, it’s a raw celebration of the youth culture that shaped today’s street communities.
