Punk by photographer Max Boschini is a black and white photo installation considered to be a part of Affective Imaging, an artistic movement whose manifestos include contributions from Max himself. The aim of Affective Imaging is to create works of art that can express and foster emotions not only through the use of figurative components, but also by expanding the way the works are experienced through sensory elements such as fragrances and tactile parts.
With Punk project, Max’s intention is to capture contradictions such as anger vs. strength that are present in the punk movement. Max does so by juxtaposing hard angles of focused body parts featuring severe tattoos such as knuckles and an elbow with blurred black and white backgrounds. He believes this tension in punk creates a shockwave powerful enough to wipe out prejudices, break conventions and exceed boundaries to the point of shattering the frame’s glass!
