Lort Nok – Soren Svendsen

Great looking book from Danish photographer Soren Svendsen on the street youth scene from Denmark in 1981 – apparently the original idea was for him to visit London at the time and photograph street punks but he decided to shoot kids in his own country’s streets. Tracking down any more information has been tricky but i’m kinda glad he didnt go to London – there’s enough pictures of towering mohicans and studded leather jackets from that era – its good to see how street styles are adopted and adapted simultaneously away frpm the cities in which they began.
