Screamers Debut May 28, 1977 #5

Screamers5-28-77-5-400wPerhaps THE most iconic photo of the Screamers (large image, second from bottom). Seen on bootlegs, magazines, books, documentaries. THE centerfold in New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s catalog for their Punk: from Chaos to Couture fashion gala show, 2013. Do you know what it’s like to wake up to an email from the MET???? I thought I died and went to heaven. I was a fine artist, having earned my BA in Art and Master of Fine Arts degrees before I ever picked up a camera and photographed punk. To think I have a piece used by METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART! OH MY GAWD!!!

Also in my hardcover coffee table solo photo book from Rizzoli, “PUNK PIONEERS.”

The other images are scanned from proof sheets, hence their lower quality.
