Emily Matview’s photography translates front-row punk show mayhem into visual poetry

In 2011, Matview founded the local website Punks in Vegas, a community resource dedicated to everything happening in the Valley’s punk music scene. As Matview began writing about shows, she started photographing them, too, turning a hobby into a full-time commitment. Matview has been capturing the essence of the punk scene—from its unbridled energy to its deep-seated camaraderie—ever since.

His parents were careful to encourage a “colorblind” point of view. I’ve heard this often—the phrase “I don’t see color” is articulated as a source of pride. It wasn’t until I read my friend’s message that I was taken aback by my own self-reflection: I don’t remember a time where I wasn’t hyperaware of my Blackness. The experience of being colorblind in the context of race is a privilege and one that I can likely never know. My Blackness is omnipresent. It is with me while casually browsing in a store, while navigating the New York City dating scene (a roller coaster we do not
