Joseph Szabo: Rolling Stones Fans

Joseph Szabo's riveting photos capture the energy and times of a 1970's Stones concert

In 1978 two of Joseph Szabo's high school students invited him to join them at a Rolling Stones concert at JFK Stadium in Philadelphia. Sensing a promising photo opportunity, Szabo agreed, packing three 35mm cameras and plenty of black-and-white film. Some 90,000 Rolling Stones fans converged on the stadium for the concert, where Szabo captured them drinking, kissing, smoking, dancing and hanging out. Their young subjects transported by the music, the drugs, the alcohol and the community, Szabo's Rolling Stones Fans photographs show unguarded moments of absorption and abandon in the sublimity of the rock and roll gig. Szabo recently returned to these contact sheets; an earlier edition of this work, published in 2007, is now highly collectible. Joseph Szabo: Rolling Stones Fans reprints photographs from this series, selected by Szabo, in a luxurious new edition.
Joseph Szabo (born 1944) has been called the "quintessential photographer of the teenager." He is best known for his photographs of adolescents taken in and around the halls of Malverne High School in Long Island, where he taught photography from 1972 to 1999, which were published in the photobook classic Teenage (Greybull, 2003). Turning his camera on his students to get their attention, Szabo captured the anxiety and bravado of the American teenager in classic documentary style black-and-white photographs that quickly attained cult status in the fashion world. In Szabo's own words, his images capture "the years of restless desire and blossoming sexuality. The world of high school, parking lots and street corners, and the uniquely American culture in which all of us have grown up."

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Another Magazine

Edwina Langley

Szabo presents the stadium as a microcosm of late-70s youth; conflicting attitudes, sexual awakenings, freedom and fear, laid bare for all to see. We observe exhibitionists performing to mini audiences; pockets of friends reveling in the euphoria and mayhem of rock; sultry figures loitering in picturesque postures; couples lounging in carefree embraces. There is an energy to the collection, and a soundtrack – rock and roll is a prominent motif. Rolling Stones Fans is where an eternally iconic and intangible mood, movement and music are united, all at once, in a tangible form.

Benedict Browne

His photos capture joy, happiness, euphoria and youth while providing an insight into what it was like to be a young Stones fan in a carefree environment.

Photograph Magazine

Vince Aletti

Like his subjects, the photographer was totally in the moment, and the energy and empathy he brings to it makes his images vibrate.

Szabo’s work has always possessed that unlikely, unconscious quality...

Joseph Szabo: Rolling Stones FansFeatured image is reproduced from Rolling Stones Fans, Teenage photographer Joseph Szabo's riveting new collection of pictures from a 1978 Stones concert. Szabo writes, "I was very close, physically close to all the people I photographed. They trusted me. But there were some situations where I would get a hostile look from somebody. And momentarily I questioned myself, 'Do I take this person's photograph or not?' But I thought, 'This is why I am here,' to mirror this whole situation. I want people who didn't come to this concert or people who did come, to say, 'That's the way it was. That's a true picture.' …This is what teenagers were like on this day, in this place, in this time. Substitute today's clothes and hairstyles, and I think you'll find teenagers doing pretty much the same things." See more images here. continue to blog
