Haute Punk. Chelsea Flea.

Chelsea. NYC. Summer 2017.

While I was walking around, in and out of the Gay Pride Parade, I stopped at Chelsea Flea Market. This man, who has been a fixture for so many years in Chelsea, has become known for his Punk style. New York City is made up of small neighborhoods, and like any small town, you get to know the locals.

I want that leather vest – – “G-D save the queen”

My mom used to put me in tiny plaid, pleated skirts – still love them, because they can be so East Coast preppy, and so Punk. It’s all about the accessories.

Lucille Ghatti (far right) and Friends. Brooklyn.July 2015.

Lucille is a singer. She talks openly about her struggle loving the father of her baby, and him not reciprocating. The pain is so real, and her emotions so raw and truthful. It’s hard to share our pain – most of us like to pretend everything is perfect, that we’re happy all the time. But that’s impossible, isn’t it?

I LOVE these friends! Lucille and her stylish crew walked by me in the Burrough Hill section of Brooklyn. Lucy told me she’s a singer and new mom.  Struggling with issues as a young woman raising a kid alone, Lucille shares her struggle through her music.  Lucille has quite a following because so many people can relate and feel something when listening to her voice.

Jason. San Rafael, California. April 2014.

Jason walked into this pizza place with a look reminiscent of the amazing styles seen at  hardcore/punk shows.  It’s awesome to see a sweet dad who continues to express himself as an individual…love this! And love the mohawk, it’s impressive how well held together it is..what product does he use?

Jason is wearing a Noi!se T-shirt, Noi!se is a street punk band based in Seattle.  Check them out at http://destinycitynoise.blogspot.com
