While the author here makes clear his disdain for classic punk rock (frankly, nobody asked), American Suburb X does a remarkable job of digging into the conceptual core of photographer Graham Macindoe’s new book of his punk upbringing, All The Young Punks. The pictures, as described here, are a refreshing window into a chaotic era of rebellion and rock-n-roll, while avoiding many of the familiar trappings of nostalgia that most punk retrospectives fall victim to.

Earning good money in remote Siberia comes with a lot of risk, as Amos Chapple discovered in the time he spent with the truckers in the region. But as he also points out, the idea of risk is relative. These guys have a different relationship with the environment than we would as visitors of the same place. There’s an element of trust that the ice beneath you won’t give in to the weight of a heavily-loaded truck. Or that if you stop once a while, you’ll actually get the best views that nature has to offer.
