Paradiso, Amsterdam’s pop temple, was the favourite hangout for punk rockers in the 1980s. Thunderously loud music, boxes full of dope and every kind of character imaginable made an evening complete. From 1980 to 1985, Max Natkiel photographed Paradiso’s punk rockers. They posed for him in their own characteristic way, mildly destructive and always with a look or attitude that said ‘Look at me all you want, you can’t touch me.’ Paradiso Stills is not a photo documentary about the pop temple, but rather a mirror of the punk generation.
