Renegades documents the fans of Botswana’s heavy metal subculture, an underground minority rebelling against the status quo, redrawing the borders of both heavy metal and orthodox culture in Botswana. Marshall traveled to Botswana to take portraits of the metal scene there – a small but strong one, heavily influenced by bands like Iron Maiden, Megadeath and Motörhead.
“I can’t recall one instance where they were reluctant or dubious towards my taking their portraits,” says Marshall. “In most cases they relished the opportunity to show themselves off. They are proud and wield a sort of tangible power, wrought from both the fantasy and sonic force of metal. Whereas many ‘metal heads’ can be arrogant or smugly indifferent, these guys in Botswana are very open.”
Are you fucking kidding me right now? It’s been less than an hour since the news of his death broke and Ray & Andrew think it’s cool to pull this shit?
Jesus. Is there anything that doesn’t rile you people up?
Dude not even an HOUR. Don’t you think it’s kind of INCREDIBLY TASTELESS to disrespect one of the most influential revolutionaries in the world just an hour after his death? Seriously, what the fuck? What is funny about that? Seriously, explain it to me because I’m not getting the joke that’s SO AWESOME that you made it literally within an hour of his death being announced.
You’re right. I’m truly a disgusting human being. I should be more like you and promote how much of an angel I am on Tumblr.
Oooh “soical justice” people are the funniest of tumblr
