RECKLESS by David Forcier

After selling out RECKLESS Vol 2 in less than a day MOM is proud to bring you the complete edition, featuring both vol 1 + vol 2 in one book.

The images document a variety of established musicians and artists such as; Straight Jacket Nation, The Stevens, Total Control, Hankwood and The Hammerheads, Haram, Parsnip, Lowlife, Oh Sees and more. From 2015 through to the 2020, the zines create a monochromatic narrative that presents the in and outs of the Australian Punk scene during one of its most prolific eras.

“There’s always endings and beginnings to everything in life and this period of time is no different. I've always found it important to be able to bookend periods of time so we can know that we are all collectively moving forward in some capacity.“ - David Forcier

The book allows the viewer to see moments in time that are normally lost in the chaos of these very shows. It is very easy to take photos of a band, but its very hard to actually capture the emotion, passion and pure reckless nature of such an environment, Dave does just that.
