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."

Introduction by Cameron Crowe.
Photographer Joseph Szabo's subject is adolescence; his rare gift is capturing the spirit of his students at Malverne High School, caught between puberty and the precipice of adulthood. Taken in the 70s and 80s, the photographs in Teenage represent a remarkable evocation of that period, and yet there is something timeless and endlessly compelling about Szabo's portrait of almost-adulthood. Some kids are painfully self-conscious, others are self-assured beyond their years--all have allowed Szabo the unique trust of seeing them as they are. The fine line between intimacy and exploitation that other photographers approach is not in evidence here--Szabo has no agenda beyond the recording of these moments of extreme loveliness, bravado and confusion. With an introduction by writer/director Cameron Crowe--himself an expert chronicler of the excitement and heartbreak of youth, having directed Fast Times at Ridegemont High and more recently Almost Famous--Teenage is a poignant record of Szabo's work spanning two decades, a timeless evocation of almost-adulthood.
