Pic of the Day: Punk Photography Isn’t Dead


If you’re among the naysayers that still need proof that punk is alive and kicking out the jams, we dare you to pick up a copy of the fiercely independent Maximumrocknroll, a collective-run zine that’s been living its radical politics since 1982. You may not have heard of many of the bands that grace its newsprint pages, but that’s all the more reason to pore over every edition. But one issue you won’t be getting your hands on is the zine’s recent photo issue, which features performance images shot by little-known photographers around the world. Luckily, you can check out three more of our favorite photos from the inspiring set after the jump.

Daigo Oliva, Sguardo Realto. Shot in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Mark Murrmann, The Mummies at the Bottom of the Hill, San Francisco, Halloween 2009.
