Michael Grecco Print Collection

Michael Grecco's extraordinary punk photography collection truly captures the spirit of the late 70s and early 80s punk movement. His extensive body of work includes an extraordinary collection of images that document the raw energy, vibrancy, and abandon of those involved at the heart of the punk club scene in places like Boston and New York.

As a newly qualified professional photographer and avid club-goer, Michael was uniquely positioned to chronicle this revolutionary time in music and those who created it. His archive includes iconic images of leading US and UK bands who pioneered the movement including The Clash, Buzzcocks, Ramones, Sex Pistols, Billy Idol, Adam & the Ants, Talking Heads, Siouxsie & The Banshees and The Cramps.

In 2020 Michael published his acclaimed book 'Punk, Post Punk, New Wave: Onstage, Backstage, In Your Face, 1978-1991' that contains over 160 photographs taken of the scene many of which were previously unseen. The release was supported by an exhibition 'Days of Punk' that continues to tour in the US and Europe.

As Michael Grecco says. “And when punk came, it was groundbreaking, it was expressive, it was authentic. People said and played and did what they wanted” and he was there to capture it all.

So enjoy Michael Grecco's limited edition collection of iconic punk, post-punk and new-wave prints featured below. If you want to know more about Michael and his photography career then you can read about him in our interview here
