Witches, club kids, tarots and township punks: Accent applauds the otherweirdly
Accent Magazine No. 8 — London-based digital magazine releases eighth issue jam-packed with unusual photo stories from around the globe.

Accent – the quarterly digital magazine celebrating ‘lives lived outside the ordinary’ – has just dropped issue eight and the line-up is as bizarre and brilliant as ever.

As well as legendary youth culture photographer Derek Ridgers sharing his insights from the frontline of 80s Soho club culture, there’s a snapshot of the vibrant punk underworld in Burma experienced first-hand by musician Greg Holland and a study of the eclectic residents of New Orleans’ French Quarter.

One of the more personal stories comes in the form of a conversation with Harnaam Kaur, a young Sikh woman who has been proudly growing her fabulous beard since the age of 16 after being diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome.

See all ten new stories on the Accent Magazine website.
