What I know a subculture to be is a subdivision of a national culture or an enclave within it with a distinct integrated network of behaviour, beliefs and attitudes.

Definition of Grime Subculture
Grime a Sub Culture of the 90’s. A Lifestyle, Hobby and Career all rolled into one. An expression of the youth of today.
Grime also classed as urban, can be found in the city’s and suburbs of England. It has its own language, appearance, discipline and culture.
Grime is influenced by Hip Hop Garage, Jungle, Reggae, Pop and many more genres. The dress code, Flow, Fashion, Attitude from these genres are very visible in this subculture.

How my work relates to Anita Corbin’s work
I went into their environment and made them pose for me how I wanted them to. I captured the attitude, clothing, expression and lifestyle.

My Portraits
My pictures are of a crew called Pace Setaz Gang. They are based in south London. I went to one of there hang outs; the studio where I took natural and posed photos of them.

When you think of the subculture grime first thing that usually comes to mind is the music, but in my work I wanted to show you the members as people, how they would look if you saw them in public. You would not necessarily know that they were musicians.
