Vinca Petersenis best known for her seminal photo essay No System. Published to great acclaim in 1999, it tells the story of a10-year personal journey travelling between the UK and Europe, staging illegal raves and festivals. Her imagery offer a window onto what was an otherwise highly secretive and closed tribe. Living within the rave community, rather than simply documentingtheir activities, legal or otherwise.
