Monday Photo Blog: Tamás x2


April 4th, 2011 by

My apologies for playing hooky last Monday. I was out in the desert, camping in the Mojave and Joshua Tree and also–ehm–at the Palm Springs Hyatt, busy critiquing photographers’ portfolios at the Palm Springs Photo Festival. To make it up to you, this week we have a double feature for you!

Back in late January, two people named Tamás (Slabéczi and Bernáth), both from Budapest, sent in submissions on the same day. Both Tamáses do Hungary’s rich photo legacy proud with killer shots from around the region, including Slovenia and Romania. Perfect for a double feature.

Thanks Tamás and Tamás!

If you shoot shows and have photos you want to submit for the MRR Blog, send them to: Be sure to put “MRR Photo Blog” in the subject. Include your name, the band, where and when it was shot. Just send your best photos – edit tightly. Three to five photos is plenty. We like to exercise a little quality control here…not everything sent in will be posted. Please size your photos so they are 600 pixels (72 dpi) at the longest side.

The Powers That Be at MRR and I have started talking about doing a new photo issue. This one will most likely focus more on people who were shooting in the early days of punk. If you know of any unsung photographers, undiscovered photo collections of punk bands from the late ’70s – early ’80s, or are just interested maybe in interviewing someone, drop us a line!
