DISPATCHES FROM PUNK ISLAND

I love shooting punk shows when I get a chance. So much energy, and positive energy at that. Although to someone who doesn’t get it, the speed and aggression of the music, the frantic pits, the heat, etc can look violent however a punk / hardcore crowd looks out for each other, and ensure that everyone can have a good time, plus some extreme acrobatics from some fans who turn flips in a pit. Punk in NYC is still very much DIY and alive. Boyle_PunkIsland_009
