Zee, storm en duister #009 Where it went, what was said
“AND WHERE IT WENT, AND WHAT WAS SAID”,-Judge
I guess it was 2004 when I started photographing hardcore and punk bands. At the same time there was this smal community that felt really tight and lasted until around 2008. The amount of memories and stories, the things I've learned, the people I've met and adventures are endless. The fact that it became two issues (for now…) says enough about the amount of material that was laying around.
I dug my way through 10 years of photos, and asked a bunch of people to tell a story about that time. I thought that some would decline, you know, not having time because we grew up. But everyone was really excited to write a piece.
Then I ran into an envelope full of flyers so I had to put them up a wall to photograph them. Although internet was already a big thing, flyers are an important part of the punk scene. At some point I had so many flyers I could fill up multiple walls, so I did.
I thought printing the photos with the shittiest printer the local printshop had and photographing them all over would give it the cut and paste vibe I really liked of fanzines. I really enjoy the almost 3D feel it has now.
