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

I work with a group of Tibetans currently. One of them commented to me recently that he thought the most beautiful pairing was what he called "American" (he means, essentially, a white person) and Tibetan. I'll be sharing the photo of Adam and his daughter with him today.

I have a follow up to my comment. I had the photo of Adam and Tenzin up on my screen at work, and one of my Tibetan coworkers (also named Tenzin)came over to my desk.
"That's Adam," he said, pointing to the screen. "I met him a while ago. His daughter's wearing traditional Tibetan dress in that picture."

He paused and looked at me. "He came to some Tibetan thing we were having a while ago. Very nice, very humble. Didn't say anything about what he did for a living... someone came up to me and said 'That's Adam Yauch from the Beastie Boys.' He was a very sweet man. We'll miss him."

... the world is a tiny, tiny place.

I felt the same way Alex. It shook me up for the exact reasons you mention.
