Peter Funch: Ritual de lo Habitual
Last August, Peter Funch travelled to Southern Germany to photograph the Summer Breeze heavy metal music festival in Dinkelsbühl. Below is a triptych Peter created using images shot from within the mosh pit.
“Being in the mosh pit is special experience. At the more wild and intense concerts you will be part of what is called Wall of Death. The audience creates a circle and after a while they run against eachother and clash. It’s something else and so much more than just aggression and destruction. It is freedom and brotherhood to be there. I loved it but felt like I had run a marathon after three days in the mosh pit.”
