Look Inside

“In the 1970’s something started creeping into Toronto’s squeaky clean reputation, spilling beer all over it and, sometimes, even a little blood. Photographer Don Pyle, who was a teenager at the time, hid behind his camera lens to capture the chaos of hundreds of gigs. Trouble in the Camera Club brings them all together in a first-time collection that showcases the best of many reckless nights and relentless energy. The images here are more than photographs. Each tells a story through bleak angles and stark expression, perfectly exposing the dynamic, iconoclastic personalities of Toronto punk in all their grainy, frayed originality. This stunning collection of images showcases local heroes the Viletones, Diodes and Teenage Head, alongside international punk icons like Deborah Harry, The Dead Boys and many more.”
