The Backpatches of the Maryland Deathfest, 2013

Took a weekend trip down to Baltimore for a few days of sun, photos, and more kinds of metal than you shake guitar strings at.

While at 2013's MDF, I got the idea to start taking photos of backpatches.
I took over 100 photos of people’s backs, and asked every single person for permission.
Each one kindly obliged, while a handful where ecstatically proud. Cheers to them all!
