Creation Summer 2017

Creation’s latest offering includes a collaboration with respected independent photographer David Hoffman. They have utilised two of David’s iconic photographs which form the focal point for their summer drop.

The “Skinhead being chased” by police was taken Thursday 9 July 1981.”

After the April uprising in Brixton there were sporadic outbreaks of relatively small scale rioting across the country. One of these was on a dull afternoon in Wood Green with attacks on police and some looting. This shot was taken on the fringes as the guy tried to escape. A couple of days later there was a major outbreak of rioting lasting 2 days in Brixton again.

The second photo was taken in Brixton over the weekend of 11 & 12 July 1981. The image was captured on Saturday 12th July

This was under the hard authoritarian Thatcher government and at a time of heavily racist policing. There had been riots earlier that year in April, first in Bristol then quickly followed by Brixton and then dozens of other places. The rioting calmed down a lot in May and June but tensions remained high and the state response was to increase policing and to encourage the police to be even more oppressive. Of course that only raised the tension and encouraged confrontation.
