Portraits Of… Belgian 80’s Punk Culture

I grew up at a time when the internet didn’t exist, but we did have MRR with it’s scene reports that turned me on to so many bands from around the world! One reason I enjoy doing these Portraits of 80’s Punk Culture is because all we had back in the day were fucked up xerox copies of photos, so now I get to see the real things. Today we would like to celebrate 80’s BELGIAN punk culture. Punk rock changed so many people’s lives on a global level, which is beyond fucking awesome!

All Photos Taken From 80s hardcore punk photos
