What could have been? This is a question I sometimes ask myself when I think of the punk artists who are no longer with us. This image of Screamers frontman Tomata du Plenty seems as if he is entering another dimension causing his features to distort. My camera could barely capture his performance as he unleashed his intense energy out to the crowds. True punk is energy that can be experienced, but never captured. I was a lucky man to have witnessed this great artist. He continues to inspire me to this day!
