Gavin Watson started out taking photos of his family and friends when he was 14 in Wycombe, England – eventually, his images of working class youths from the 1970s and 80s, first published in Skins (1994), would become classics, influencing a generation of photographers.

More recently, Vice Magazine Editor Andy Capper brought Gavin Watson out of a self-imposed exile and uncovered hundreds of new, unpublished photos which were released in Skins & Punks: Lost Archives, 1978-1985. The images have also been compiled into an exhibition and are currently being shown at Myymala2 in Helsinki.
