I can’t remember where I met Ole Peterson but I guess it was at some 108 show somewhere in Germany in the mid-1990s. Neither can I remember why we talked about photography. All I know is that I got this letter from Russia in 1995 or 1996 with these photos here for my fanzine that I was putting out at that time. Ole’s photos just catch the right raw moment; the essence of hardcore. Those are photos that made me take up the camera.

The color of some of these photos starts to fade away. This will digitally preserve them and pay homage to their author.
