Esteemed photographer James Mollison spent over three years outside different concert venues, capturing the varied fans and their wild attire. During the project, he noticed different “tribes” of people, emulating the celebrities and bonding with other fans in what he calls “surrogate families.” It was a chance to belong, relive their youth and enjoy the art of musicians they revere.
