These mosh pit photos don't show metal-heads in their early '20s, but rather teenagers in the throes of the angst and aggression that mark the teenage years. For this particular series, titled 'Saturday's Mosh', photographer Emily Stein literally dove into teenage mosh pits, where energy and aggression flow unabated.
While mosh pits have traditionally been fundamental aspects of heavy metal, punk and hard rock live scenes, it has transcended its live music roots. It remains especially popular among young people, who knowingly or otherwise use it to release aggression and forget about the troubles of their young lives.
Stein's mosh pit photos show boys and girls alike banging their heads with reckless abandon and indulge in the kind of aggressive and potentially dangerous physical contact that is banned in their schools and homes.
