Editorial Reviews

Review

"'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

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.

It's really a great book and always brings a smile to my face!

The photos by Hugh Holland are iconic, and he is one of the great surf/skate photographers, and why not, documenters of a certain period in American history.

the size of the book is great, the printing awesome and the interview is useful to understand this golden period of skateboarding history. I'm not a skater or something, I'm a photographer and looking the killer book want me to know more about this world, their culture... and, I guess, the mean reason for a book is inspiration, so this one works fine... so fine.

LOCALS ONLY is edited by Steve Crist and provides a stunning addition to photography and California collections alike. An oversized presentation comes from a young photographer who encountered skateboarders riding along Laurel Canyon Boulevard in Los Angeles. Entranced, he devoted his photography talents to capturing them: this lovely survey captures Southern California culture and youth lifestyle and provides a vivid series of color images. Any arts or California history collection needs this!

This has to be one of the best volumes of photographic work published over the last twenty years. It perfectly captures the essence of an era that we will never see again, and it does so from inside the core of that experience.

This volume conveys the philosophy of an age that, like fine wine, has become more precious over time.

Many photographers, especially in the area of sports, are distant and aloof from their subjects. Hugh Holland, on the other hand, sweeps the viewer off his feet and takes him along for the adventure with him. That is the magical aspect of his images.

In an essay I just read online today, an editorial refers to Holland's work as capturing "The Lost Art of Living". Read this to fill in all that I would have loved to have said myself:

[...].

I am a huge fan of the Southern California skate/surf culture, and this book always puts a smile on my face. The photos by Hugh Holland are iconic, and he is one of the great surf/skate photographers, and why not, documenters of a certain period in American history. I highly recommend the book to anyone interested in board sports, photography in general and the Californian beach scene
