Photography: 1970s American teenagers captured by Joe Maloney

Oh to be a teenager in the late 70s, smoking weed in your car and driving to a lakeside fireworks display after a long day chilling at the waterpark. Photographer Joe Maloney was there and rather than spending his time rolling joints and eating cotton candy he actually made the effort to document what was going on around him. His photos are like the best parts of Dazed and Confused combined with the white-sock style of Do the Right Thing, making him my new favourite photographer.
