Noteworthy Photography

  • Burning Flags Press
    The website of Glen E. Friedman. Renowned for both his work with musicians like Fugazi, Minor Threat, Public Enemy, the Beastie Boys, Slayer (and many, many more) as well as his groundbreaking documentation of the burgeoning skateboard phenomenon in the late `70's, Glen has been privvy to (and has summarily captured on film) some of the coolest stuff ever. He's also an incredibly insightful and nice guy to boot.
  • SoHo Blues - Photography by Allan Tannenbaum
    Allan Tannenbaum is a local photographer who has been everywhere and shot everything, from members of Blondie hanging out at the Mudd Club through the collapsing towers of the World Trade Center on September 11th. You could spend hours on this site, and I have.
  • Robert Otter Photographs
    Amazing vintage photographs of New York City, specifically my own neighborhood, Greenwich Village.
  • oboylephoto
    Just some intensely cool photographs of abandoned places.
  • Rikki Ercoli's Legends of Punk
    Much like Glen E. Friedman (see above), Rikki Ercoli has managed to catch some amazing bands in their manic element.
  • Lost & Found Film
    A fascinating website devoted to undeveloped film found in vintage camers. A curious mixture of interesting and spooky.
  • Pinhole Photography by Veronica Saddler
    NYC landmarks shot through a pinhole lens. Neat-o.
  • Eugene Merinov
    Compelling shots of Punk, Post-Punk and New Wave band performing live in various long-lost venues in a pre-sanitized New York City. Great stuff!
  • Edward Colver

Bowery Boogie

nice touch with the last pictures.


I don't get it.
These pictures don't show anymore change than they would show if you snapped them every 3 months.

Some do. Some don't. Maybe you're just not taking very detailed stock of your surroundings.


Or maybe there's an alarmist fear that one's perception of negative changes are permanent, and positive ones will never be seen again.

Alex in NYC

If I was as negative as you seem to be projecting, Paul, why would I even bother remaining in NYC? By the same token, I have a hard time perceiving the transformation of Soho from what it was to what it is now. Personally speaking, I miss the Soho of my youth, when it was a haven for street art and reinvention. I think its current incarnation is rather staid, soulless and bland. This is only my opinion, of course.

You can take it from this alarmist who had a 1600 sq ft loft on Crosby St in the '60s for $125/month. The glory days of Soho are gone forever, The same goes for Mexico City, Acapulco, Torremolinos, and Papeete. Savor what little bit is left because that will disappear, too.
