self released pl01 Susie Horgan Punk Love

Photographs by Susie J. Horgan, text by Ian MacKaye and Henry Rollins.

Susie Horgan (formerly Susie Josephson) is one of the first great photographers to grow out of and document the early punk scene in Washington DC in the early 80s. Her iconic photographs from the Washington DC punk scene in 1980-'81 are instantly recognizable by people familiar with Dischord Records -- the Teen Idles 7" , The SOA 7", the first Minor Threat 7" and the Flex Your Head LP all use her photos as central themes. Unlike many documentary photographers Susie's perspective is personal. She doesn't view the scene from the outside but as a participant and the result is a document of history and of friendship. Punk Love.
