PUNK ROCK BOWLING 2018 — REDLIGHTS + REDEYES

In the Bears Ears region of Southeastern Utah, there is an area of winding canyons known by Navajo people as Nahoniti’ino – or the hiding place. American Indians used the landscape to elude U.S. military troops in 1864, as thousands were being marched by gunpoint down to Fort Sumner in New Mexico. Hundreds died from hunger and exhaustion in what became known as the Long Walk, a brutal chapter that five tribes highlight in a lawsuit they recently filed against President Donald Trump.

Lilian Caruana, Exotic “tribe” – The Eye of Photography

These photographs of the punks and skinheads of New York's East Village were made between 1984-1987.  There is, in most people, an inclination to be put off by the outrageous styles and symbol's that characterize this subculture's rebellion, and for that reason I chose to photograph them in a series of intimate portraits, which were taken in their homes and on the streets where some of them lived as well as in the clubs where they performed their music.

riot fest — LOCK + LAND

Riot Fest hit Denver this weekend with a lineup of 80 bands over three days of craziness. LOCK + LAND was there to document the debauchery. Clad in leather studded jackets, Misfit t-shirts, and mohawks for days, the crowd looked ready to riot, but really for as big as this event was, it was pretty mellow and awesome. It's the thing about summer festivals...they're loaded with tons of amazing bands, but you're running around like crazy just trying to hit every one and stay hydrated. Even for three songs.
