PUNKS & PORTRAITS SAN FRANCISCO 1979

By John Roberts

“…Only a rare eye can make such intense people doing intense things on sticky floors so unforgettable, even decades later…One of the least known from our Mabuhay/Deaf Club days is John Roberts. I am so glad John's pictures, thought lost for decades, are now out and available, so everyone can see them. His work is as important as anyone's out there. Maybe better. - Jello Biafra"
