When does a subculture become mainstream? It's a question I've been asking myself all day. My new university brief asks me to produce three photographs based on the word subculture. So I did the standard research the definition, mind maps, write down what it means to me sort of start research you do for a project. I'm more stumped now then I was at the start of the day. I have lists of what technically can be classified as a subculture. I have sub groups of that, like conflict subculture and retreatist subculture. I could do a whole project on the punk rock movement but when it's s such a large part of society and history is it really a subculture now? Can I plaster a bunch of my photographs on the wall of people taking drugs, or people who have tattoos, or people that are really into electronic dance music and say I have fulfilled my brief requirements?
