Based in Somerville, Massachusetts, artist Timothy O'Connell drives home the grunge-ridden life of an American kid.
The series exposes the rawness of North American youth. Young subcultures have been reworking grunge into a whole new dimension of brutal grime. The result is fantastic music, ass-kicking crowds, and an 'i-don't-give-a-f**k' attitude. O'Connell's work has perfectly captured the suburban life of Somerville and the true American punkass spirit. O'Connell skips over the cliche hipster haze cam, and goes for traditional flash use. The utter avoidance of the poor quality pictures that have become so popular is like an act of rebellion in itself.
Timothy O'Connell has a promising future in the art of photography and should seriously consider photographic journalism.
