Marilyn Manson, Utica, New York 1997.

Wednesday, 21 July 2010 This was from the time when a lot of middle America genuinely thought Marilyn Manson was the devil. Later on in the day, after I’d shot this photograph, religious organisations and deep-thinking bastions of family values such as ‘God Hates Fags’ picketed his gig. He didn’t strike me as being any great danger to the fabric of society.  Quite the opposite.
