It's been a minute, but it's time for a new Hardcore Photo Party entry on the site. This time out, we're going back to both the '90s and '00s in Chicago (and a couple from Indiana) with Sean Capone. From 1990-1994, Sean was behind Positron Fanzine, covering the punk scene via his camera lens. Since then, he's been immersed in the digital video and animation world, working in film & TV, video games, music videos, gallery and museum exhibitions, and many other fields. You can see some of Sean's work on his website and Instagram page.

For now, enjoy some of Sean's photos from his zine days!
