It's said to have started with the punk pogo, then it went on to become hardcore slam dancing before the bastardized pronunciation of mash left us calling them mosh pits, but whatever you call them chances are you know the scene- a bunch of people at a hardcore or metal show thrashing about with reckless abandon.
Photographer Emily Stein captures the feeling of being up close and personal with your fellow hard music lover in the pit in her photo series 'Saturday's Mosh', capturing today's punky teens in their natural environment.
Emily's images captures the chaos, emotion and general giddiness felt by her kid subjects as they take in a show, and they're likely to make those who've dwelled in their share of mosh pits feel nostalgiac.
