Konstantin Sergeyev's Photos Will Punch You

Photographer Konstantin Sergeyev has been making himself (and readers of New York Magazine, Vice, Chief Mag, & many others) happy by taking photos of punk shows in & around NYC for coming up on ten years. Lucky us that he sent over this photo of a GUIGNOL show in December at Shea Stadium in Brooklyn. More about Konstantin:

"ok lets see.. i was born in odessa, ukraine but came to brooklyn, new york with my family when i was just hitting my teens. discovered punk rock a couple of years later and took a photo class in high school at the same time - turned out my teacher used to take photos at hardcore shows in the early 80s, shooting mdc, minor threat, black flag, etc. so i started shooting shows as well. this march it'll be 10 years since i shot my first show. i still shoot mainly smaller local shows in new york, and have been lucky enough to document some of my favorite bands on tour...coming up on feb 6 i'll be showing some of my work at an event called "hardcore punktuation" at the hub city art space in new brunswick, nj. its a "diy group art exhibition featuring nyc & nj punk artists" and besides visual art there will also be spoken word and acoustic sets. "

To see more of Konstantin's work please have a look at KONSTPHOTO. Also I strongly suggest checking out HIS FLICKR PAGE. He's shot everyone from Vivian Girls to The Pogues. If you're near/in New Bruswick, NJ here's the flyer for the upcoming show he was speaking about.
