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

Yep Uhuh


Fantastic.

You two should have your own PBS show.


Can't imagine how low the ratings would be, but I'd be watching.

Nice post, but you could have just asked Godlis - he took the photo.

Yes - 9th street it is. To have my photograph subjected to a Bob Egan archeological investigation makes me feel a bit historical and hysterical at the same time - I'm a total fan of his Bob Dylan LP cover creeds. I now feel worthy of the likes of Schatzberg and Kramer - ha!

it was indeed the fall of 1977 when I walked (lured) television into walking across St.Marks (Fred lived on St.Marks between 1st & 2nd ave), past the holiday cocktail lounge & stromboli's) and up first ave where we came upon this enormous puddle on the corner of 9th. I had them wait on the corner while I traversed around to the other side of the water, to take the photo - I think they thought I was a bit crazy. That sidewalk is still kind of crooked & there probably was a clogged drain at the time. That corner was a fruit vegetable stand for years. To coin a phrase, First Avenue was so medieval - strewn with colorful little shops (buttons, curtains, etc.) excellent as backdrops - all now restaurants. Believe me, nobody noticed us at all.

Alex in NYC

Holy Smokes!! GODLIS WEIGHS IN!!!
