Every generation thinks that they invented rebellion. Every generation thinks they invented punk rock. Who thinks that their parents could have possibly done anything cool? No one. It’s not possible that your parents were ever anything other than boring.

Your parents may be boring now, but guess what, kids: We weren’t always boring. We had our day, just like your kids will too.

I photograph the angry (and increasingly middle-aged) youth because one day they’re going to want to look back and remember their misbegotten younger days. When that day comes, the records, flyers, and photographs are what they will have to show the next generation. I’m just doing my part.
