If you went raving in the noughties your face could be in new book of photos

Street photographer Matthew Smith's latest publication features ’human rave behaviour’ between 2000 and 2005

Glowsticks and gurns dominated the UK’s dancefloors when the rave scene went mainstream.

Once the preserve of illegal free parties and soundsystem culture, the ‘noughties’ saw the underground dance culture move indoors - and explode into a legitimate industry.

Drenched in sweat - and in various states of undress and inebriation - ecstatic and uninhibited clubbers escaped from reality in a neon wonderland, to a soundtrack of distorted bass and repetitive beats.

It was an era before camera phones became ubiquitous - and Instagram selfies and Snapchat filters became an obsession.

But your best (or worst) bass face could still have been captured on camera - and it may even feature in a new art book, featuring photos of ’human rave behaviour’ between 2000 and 2005.

His new book ‘Full On. Non-Stop, All Over’ documents those naughty noughties nights in glorious style.
