Over the years, we’ve seen a few pictures of Daft Punk without their famous helmets on. A new website called Daft Bootlegs has collected dozens of rare helmet-less Daft Punk photos from the late ’90s and early 2000s and put them in one place. It’s a fascinating look not only at what these two game-changing artists look like under the helmets, but at their early careers as DJs on the rise.

See all of the photos here.
