SNAP – Sharpies Urban Folklore – Australia 1952-1987
Complied by Julie Mac
SNAP sketches the timeline of a lost Australian sub-culture, the teenage Sharpie gangs.
Tough and stylish, the Sharpies created their own diverse family, where mateship and defiance were valued over race, colour or authority.
SNAP is loaded with photos, snippets from the internet and first hand recollections from former Sharpies and observers.
