Battered - Photographs by Harri Pälviranta

Lens Culture... Battered - Photographs by Harri Pälviranta. "...Like a modern-day Weegee, Harri Palviranta cruises the night streets of Finland, armed with his Hasselblad camera and a big flash, looking for a fight to photograph, or the bloodied face of a drunken party-goer, or the scene of a recent brawl.
Drunken public violence is an increasing occurrence among the young and restless in many parts of contemporary Finnish society. Weekend parties often lead to intoxication, loosened inhibitions, random physical aggression and bloody violence." More Works by Harri Pälviranta at his personal site.
