Photographs on the Brain #50


Punk Passage: A Tragicomic Romp Thru the Hardcore Axis of the SF/LA Punk Scene 1977–1981 is Ruby Ray’s first book, as DIY as anything she has ever done. Produced exclusively as a photographic ebook, Ray has amassed the best of her archive into an explosive volume of style, angst, and art set adrift the punk revolution as it swept through California like a wildfire. Ray’s photographs read as a who’s who of the time, with portraits of the Avengers, the Screamers, the Germs, the Nuns, X, the Cramps, and the Dead Kennedys, among countless others.
