Jocks and Nerds: Safety Pin

Jocks and Nerds Autumn Issue features as always vital stories. Here is one particular feature on the humble Safety Pin, well we say Humble it's not really ...The Safety Pin is a design classic, functional and aesthetically beautiful. Of course Punk made it into a statement all of it's own, and with the anniversary of the Punk 70's explosion and all that went with it, it's only right that it's celebrated. Punk is not where it stopped though and who better to wear one now than the front man of The Parkinsons, Afonso Pinto. The Safety Pin shoot was photographed by Dean and styled by Jocks and Nerds fashion director Mark Anthony Bradley.

A Long Way To Nowhere documentary has been made about The Parkinsons and will have its premier at the DocnRoll Festival on the 13 November 6:30pm followed by a Q&A this will no doubt be a riotous affair...visit the DocnRoll site here for more information.

Jocks and Nerds also includes features on Wagner Moura, Sly Johnson and Danny Fields. More from Dean's other shoots in the current issue soon.
