Robbie Jackson is a Level 5 student on the BA (Hons) Commercial Photography course at Arts University Bournemouth. This is his project “The Brummie Boys”.
This project was my attempt to mix both fashion editorial and cinematic stills, i did this by producing a set of 4 cinematic stills with editorial shots separating them. My series is inspired by the fashion of the working class during the 20’s and the gangs that gained momentum such as the brummagem boys and the cheapside sloggers. in the early 20th century wearing a suit wasnt for special occasions it was every day and these gangs adapted their clothing to their lifestyle stitching razorblades into their flat caps, they commanded fear and respect and did it looking their best.
