'Silent Weapons' is a photo document of the current and very bubbling "new underground" in New York City by one of the scene's most vital lenses, Richard R Ross (aka @auniqueting).

Silent Weapons started in 2018 as a means to not only gather ourselves as a local and engaged community, but to transfer our energy into actual resources via channels of local non-profit action.

From the four shows, we raised over $2,600 for various bail abolition organizations and prison/jail library programs + donated hundreds of books to library services at Rikers Island and other local facilities (10+ boxes during the first show/book drive) + raised over $1,650 for immigrants’ rights via Black Alliance for Just Immigration and Kids in Need of Defense.

This book is a true archive of the first year of the Silent Weapons series. We believe that these shows (gatherings) represent an up-springing of diverse and uncompromising sonic languages. This is a moment of a new underground which has been evolving over and over again - from years prior, to the present, and then into tomorrow. Energy is real. Real energy builds.

This is a document of real energy in action. No media conglomerate nor institution nor high art imprint nor corporate entity shrouded in (sub)cultural camouflage can ever have this. Our collective is too strong. Their culture is not ours.

Richard R Ross has been capturing energy through his lens work for decades and has been an active staple in the tri-state underground (NY, NJ, PA) for longer than we can say.
