The raw need to vent, let loose and throw ourselves around with other youngsters, preferably to equally angst-ridden music in some dark and sweaty venue somewhere?

British photographer Emily Stein's Saturday Mosh is a series that pays homage to that very sentiment. "A mosh pit is a semi-controlled place to vent. It's somewhere to build up adrenaline and let go of all the troubles of young life. It's physical; it's contact; it's anger; it's aggression – it's celebrating things that are not allowed in polite society."
