Portraits Of Metal Heads…
HEAD BANGING by Jacob Ehrbahn

Do I like head banging? HELL YES!!! The photo journalist Jacob Ehrbahn documented kids head banging in 2012 during the Wacken Fest & Copenhell, and the outcome was unreal! What I love about his photos is the sense of freedom you see on people’s faces – they seem to be in a state of chaotic joy! Ehrbahn has a book coming out in September entitled Headbangers that you can pre-order HERE. I know I’m not alone when I feel like I have reached the mountain top after a long night of swinging my head like crazy!

All photos by Jacob Ehrbahn from Great Photojournalism
