Carol Jerrems. Photographer. Australian. 1949-1980.

Carol Jerrems took photos of the ‘sharpie’ youth subculture in Melbourne in the 1970s. Her photos mark the beginnings of a new-wave in Australian photography, a blurring of documentary-style realism and a more subjective-style of portraiture. Her style remind me of Gavin Watson‘s photos of British skinheads.
