I started working with the newly launched New York Magazine blog Bedford and Bowery, a localized blog covering the Lower East Side, the East Village, Williamsburg, Bushwick and Greenpoint in Brooklyn. The show was epic. One of the hardest concerts I have ever photographed as there was a pretty raucous mosh pit, my leg was in a brace and focusing was next to impossible. Someone fell on top of me while I was shooting nearly crushing my flash.
But for me, the fans were the stars. I didn’t realize there was a large heavy metal/burnout culture brewing again and they were all there so I killed time before the show making these portraits.
