Photographer Michael Grecco takes us back to the ‘Days of Punk’ - Spectrum News 1

LOS ANGELES — Michael Grecco was a fledgling photographer in the 1970s when the punk rock scene emerged in the clubs of Boston and New York, which he documented with his camera.

The Los Angeles-based photographer became “embedded” in the punk scene and created intimate portraits of the people and places of punk including bands such as The Clash, Talking Heads, The Buzzcocks, Billy Idol, The Dead Kennedys, Human Sexual Response, The Ramones and many more.

On view until March 19 at the Museum of Art and History in Lancaster is a selection of Grecco’s huge body of black-and-white photographs that chronicle the punk movement from ground zero.
