Since its inception, the Indy has been committed to publishing memorable images. A prevailing "give 'em hell" attitude fueled a desire to push the boundaries of traditional newspaper photography, to champion images that seemed more personal and timeless. "[In photography] it's rare to have total aesthetic freedom and do something worthwhile," said former staff photographer Alex Manness.

This is the second of two portfolios representing Indy photography over the years, as part of our 25th anniversary. (View the first portfolio, covering 1983-1989.)
