About the Author

Hugh Holland began photographing skateboarders in southern California in 1975. His series of skateboard photographs was first shown at M+B Gallery in Los Angeles in 2006. Following the success of the show, his work has been shown in Paris and New York City, and fashion trendsetters such as American Apparel have used Holland's skateboarding images in their publicity campaigns. Holland resides in Los Angeles.

Reviews

"A wonderful time machine that captures a unique period of skateboard history. ... How fortunate we are that Hugh Holland was there to document a golden era." -Concrete Wave "Sometimes, you stumble upon a photographer whose work has gone unnoticed. He has been sitting on photos shot 30 years ago; like a good stew, they've been simmering, getting juicier and juicier." -C Magazine "Skateboards, sweatbands, streetwear and other relics of the '70s are perfectly preserved in Holland's action shots of rail-riding teens." -Time Out New York


"'Locals Only' is a celebration of youth. Muscles, wiry bodies, long, tangled hair. A kid might have been in one of the most awkward stages of adolescence, but when he was sailing around an empty pool, Holland reminds us, he was something else entirely. He was perfection." --Los Angeles Times"Photographer Hug Holland's book captures the short shorts, big hair, and sick tricks that defined Southern California's '70s skateboard culture." --Men's Journal"[Hugh] Holland immortalized the brash riders with his camera. Nearly four decades later, the fruits of his work are collected in 'Locals Only, ' a book infused with nostalgia for the birth of a sport and the exuberance of a youth culture. ... The book may be a snapshot of an era long passed, but the photos of young skaters in long haircuts and Vans feel as timely as ever." --ESPN Magazine"Skateboards, sweatbands, streetwear and other relics of the '70s are perfectly preserved in Holland's action shots of rail-riding teens." --Time Out New York
