Dan Martenson photographed indie rock trio The Yeah Yeah Yeahs in an editorial for Holiday magazine. The grainy, black-and-white images look like old passport pictures or a long-forgotten reel of photobooth photos fished out of an old wallet.

The nostalgic element of the photobooth medium -- which brings forth memories of travel, adventure and life-long friendships -- coincides perfectly with the band, whose music focuses on the euphoric feelings of adolescence, first-time love and the incipient potential of the future.

To top it all off, the band appears to be having a great time. They pose for Martenson in a range of eclectic outfits and silly faces, imbuing the spread with a rambunctious and playful energy. The band seems like an easygoing, super fun group to share a beer with. Stats for Indie-Rock Photobooth Photography Trending: This Quarter & Warm
