Recent press on Order of Appearance:

…Contrary to most punk photography of the era this book is full color and almost devoid of any of the bands actually playing shows. Instead, these photos preserve touching moments of his friends dying their hair, stuffing themselves into cars, and passing out in public. Jocoy finds the powerful contrasts of an era in San Francisco sandwiched between sexual liberation and the AIDS epidemic in these vivid photos of his friends who were affected by both...”

“…Intimate, lucid and heartfelt, Jocoy’s images are a record of a fragile moment when the Summer of Love was definitively over and the AIDS epidemic was still in its earliest stages…”

- PDN Photo of the Day: An intimate view of early punk San Francisco

“…The book unfolds as a film would, with kids getting ready then heading out, hitting the sweat-drenched clubs and stumbling through after hours until they’re back on the streetand the sun comes up…”

- Dazed Digital: Chaotic photos of San Francisco's punk explosion

“…an intimate, diaristic view of an incipient youth subculture as Jocoy’s punk subjects primp and sneer while the city crumbles around them…” 

- Guardian UK: Bay of punks: remembering when punk rock invaded San Francisco



"It is this (fascination), along with his shrewd eye for composition, that makes Jocoy’s photographs so mesmerising; he sought to celebrate the poetry in punk, the unique energy at the heart of this subculture that he could call his own."
