Skinheads

Skinheads

A member of the United National Front Nazi Party relaxes with his girlfriend in Christchurch in 1990. His shaved head and high lace-up boots represent the 'skinhead' style, which many white-supremacist groups adopted from the 1980s. Swastika symbols were also a common feature of such groups. The 'skinhead' style had been first adopted by British working-class groups.
