The Disciples – Photographer James Mollison

I came across a series of photographs via Rookie magazine and couldn’t help but spend a few minutes studying each one. The people in the photos all seemed similar and I was curious to find out how.  They were all concert goers.  Over a series of three years, photographer James Mollison attended many concerts and took photos of all the concert goers, he’s named this collection of photos, the Disciples.  Such COOLNESS!

Bjork — Hammersmith Apollo, London, 10th & 14th April 2008

“Over three years I photographed fans outside different concerts. I am fascinated by the different tribes of people that attend them, and how people emulate celebrity to form their identity.”

Marilyn Manson — Mazda Palace, Milan, 7th June 2005

“As I photographed the project I began to see how the concerts became events for people to come together with surrogate ‘families’, a chance to relive their youth or try and be part of a scene that happened before they were born.”
