Nobody but nobody out there understands disco culture like Andy Massaccesi. Having worked in discos for the past eight year’s he’s got a pretty unique perspective on the strange happenings that take place in those vast, darkened dens of iniquity. In his attempt to reveal the strange nuances of human social interaction Andy has put himself amongst a plethora of partygoers; young, old, male, female, foamy, sweaty and off their nuts, each of them following the same ingrained rules of party-going.
The best news is Andy’s gathered together his very best shots into a new book, Is Getting Over where you can appreciate all of these stunning photographs in one great, thick book. Spot on.
