For over three years photographer James Mollison photographed fans outside different concerts. His stunning panoramic portraits of pop concert fans emulating their idols are collected in an addictive volume called ‘The Disciples’. Featured bands and stars include Madonna, Marilyn Manson, 50 Cents, Sex Pistols, Spice Girls, Iron Maiden, Rod Stewart and more. Says James Mollison,
I was fascinated by the different tribes of people that attended them, and how people emulated celebrity to form their identity. As I photographed the project I began to see how the concerts became events for people to come together with surrogate 'families', a chance to relive their youth or try and be part of a scene that happened before they were born.
