“DAYS OF PUNK” will be on display from October 15, 2023, to January 28, 2024, at the Centro Cultural de Cascais, in Cascais, Portugal. The exhibition is a production of the D. Luís I Foundation, with the collaboration of the Cascais City Council, as part of the city’s Museum Quarter program. The opening is scheduled for October 14th, with the presence of the photographer.
The more than 100 photographs featured in “DAYS OF PUNK” date from the late 1970s to the early 1990s, when Michael Grecco witnessed the explosion of the punk, post-punk and new wave scenes at concerts and nightclubs in Boston and New York. In the midst of the events, on stage and behind the scenes, the photographer had the unique opportunity to document for posteriority a frenetic moment in the history of music, translating into images the rebellion, raw energy, emotional power and outrageous irreverence that characterized the alternative music of that time.
