Great Punk Era Photographs by David Arnoff

David Arnoff is a Cleveland-born, London-based photographer who took iconic photos of every punk and new wave band you’ve ever heard of and a few you haven’t. Dangerous Minds has a short interview.

Tara: Who are/were your favorite subjects?

David Arnoff: Off the top of my head: The Cramps, Stiv, Thee Hypnotics, The Scientists, Nick Cave, Lydia and Exene…I do wish I could have spent more time with some people, the Ramones and X, for instance. But I’m not complaining.

My favorite Gun Club song was always their cover of CCR’s “Run Through the Jungle.”
