We received a really cool email from the UK this morning from Andrew Bannerman Bayles, who happens to be an unreal photographer. He said he checked out some of our past photo essays about the punk scene and said we should check out his flicks from the 80s and 90s. From the very first picture I was hooked – you could smell the aggression and youthful energy jumping off of the film. What makes pictures like his so special is that they were taken before the internet and social media, meaning that anyone outside of his circle of friends had no way of seeing them until now. In the 80’s, all we had were degraded xerox photocopies of pictures and our imaginations. Now it’s time for you to check out Andrew Bannerman Bayles portraits of the 80’s and 90’s underground punk scene in England.
