Riot women captured in their element

Music photographer Pat Graham is releasing a book of his legendary photos from Akashic Books in early September, and several of the pictures are of dykes on mics (and other instruments.) From iconic Bikini Kill portraits to classic pics of a pre-Sleater-Kinney Carrie Brownstien in Excuse 17, Graham has always had an eye for talented musicians on the rise, which makes Silent Pictures a purchase for a good cause.

Other ladies featured in the book include Slant 6, Bratmobile, L7, and Cold Cold Hearts. It makes us nostalgic for the 1990s.
