HALLE-LU

" I look at this picture Dash took, and I guess it is easy to see disrespect in it, and nothing heroic about it, but I like the cockiness of it. I love it, in fact. I look at it as a scrappy little "Fuck You" from New York kids to whomever thought they could squash them. Simple as that. Maybe that, to people today is as naive, earnest and treacly as I might regard a '60s folk song, but that's what I see in the picture.

If you see something else in it, tough shit for you."
--Jeff Johnson on Dash Snow's work/life/context in one photo.
