Synopsis

Punk: 365 Days by Holly George-Warren

More than thirty years ago, a dark rumble of noise gurgled up from the Lower East Side of New York City, made its way across the atlantic to Great Britain, zigzagged back over the pond to the West Coast, and exploded. Its name - Punk. In Punk 365 , the most provocative photography documents the performances, the looks and the attitude that continue to shake up the status quo. From pre-punk pioneers (the Stooges, the New York Dolls) to New York's harbingers of change (the Ramones, Patti Smith, Richard Hell & the Voidoids) to London's Anarchists (the Sex Pistols, the Clash) to the West Coast's anti-beach boys (the X, the Germs), Punk 365 has them all, with more than 300 different artists captured by the most talented photographers on the scene, including Bob Gruen, Roberta Bayley, Stephanie Chernikowski and more.
