These Photos of Teenagers Moshing Will Make You Feel Young (and Punk) Again

The teenage years may be the most self-conscious stage of most people’s lives, but as any high school punk rocker knows, the prying eyes of teachers and parents and popular kids can’t touch you in the mosh pit. Emily Stein‘s Saturday Mosh series (spotted via Beautiful/Decay) captures this feeling completely, in sweaty, closeup photos of teens — and even, from the looks of it, tweens — dancing like no one’s watching. Click through to vicariously relive your misspent youth.
