With the possible closure of the Southbank’s infamous concrete jungle imminent, skate boarders aren’t having the best of times right now. Luckily a new collection from Sandro has launched, highlighting the good times of the sport with photographs from Hugh Holland’s Locals Only series.
The images were all taken by Holland during the mid-70s, following a summer of driving around LA which saw his path cross with skaters continuously. This discovery fascinated Hugh and led to three years of shooting skaters across the Southern California coast, from empty swimming pools to Venice Beach.
Locals Only was originally released in 2010 with a re-edit released two years later. Today the images have been stretched and splashed across jersey tees in a tidy collection for the Parisian brand, accompanied by a brightly coloured skateboard (but of course). Our fave is this jazzy number above.
