brooklyn gang

These amazing photos are from New York photographer Bruce Davidson's 1959 series Brooklyn Gang, following a group of teen greasers styling themselves "the Jokers." Rarely do I see things this up my alley. The boys, the girls, the clothes, the hair, the sense of danger and badass-ery(yeah this is a term I learned while obtaining my art history degree), and the cinematic aspect of even the most mundane moments of adolescence.

You can learn & see more over at the Retronaut.
