Punk Daze

by John Brian King

In the early 1980s, John Brian King was photographing the stranded travelers and unfrequented places that would later appear in his unique, wonderful book LAX: Photographs of Los Angles 1980–84. At the same time, he was going to punk shows, desecrating L.A. industrial lofts, meeting John Lydon (!), and hanging out with some spectacularly dressed friends. He brought his camera along to capture the odder moments of his youth. His color photographs are vibrant and unaffected; his black-and-white shots are stark and impulsive, reminiscent of his work at the airport. “Punk Daze” is a casual, personal look into the photographer’s life, revealing, little by little, the anarchic ideas behind his artistic accomplishments.


John Brian King is a Los Angeles native who graduated with a degree in photography from the California Institute of the Arts. His photography books LAX: Photographs of Los Angeles 1980–84 and Nude Reagan are now available from Spurl Editions. He designed the film titles for over thirty films, including Boogie Nights, Punch-Drunk Love and The Ring. Additionally, he wrote and directed the feature film Redlands, an examination of creativity and horror in relation to photography. Visit his website here, and follow him on Instagram.
