VTS (2)

As I have chosen to focus on Teddy Boys for my subcultures project I will do another VTS exercise with a different photo but of of the same subculture.

  1. (what is happening?) In this photo it looks like the four teddy boys are walking down the street, the picture looks like it has been set up
  2. (what makes you think that?) I can tell they are teddy boys from the clothes that they are wearing, the Edwardian suit jackets, ties and smart trousers. They also all have the slicked back quiff hairstyle. Their pose and smiles make me think that this photo has been organised.
  3. (what more can you find?) They are in a group and not often seen alone, maybe because of conflict or violence, gangs?
