“Rebels” by Richard Young at Leica Gallery Boston is an exhibition of punk rock photography featuring both famously classic and never-before-seen images selected from the Richard Young Gallery archive. Beyond The Sex Pistols, this exhibition features photographs from other punk and punk-influenced bands such as The Clash, X-Ray Spex, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Blondie and the Ramones, alongside other lesser known artists like Gaye Advert, even Adam and the Ants. These photographs capture a unique music scene in London in the 70s while also presenting the culture that emerged in reaction to punk.
