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

Ricky is a pretty cool guy, he probably would have been happy to chat as long as you didn't come off too geeky and fanboy-ish.

Alex in NYC

Well, that was precisely my concern. Oh well, maybe next time.


Fantastic. Bob is some kind of savant.

I Love This....

And yes, I still live in the neighborhood, on Charles St btwn West 4th and Bleecker. But I wasn't living there yet. I was still living at home at 24 Fifth Ave... I too, went to PS41, Class of '72. Rachel Horovitz was in my 4th grade class and she lives a couple of blocks from me now and we run into exch other and say hello...She's always been very nice... I'm pretty blown away by this article... Next time say hello, I'd be more than gladd to stop and chill on a stoop with you and charlottee. Stay up.

Btw, I shot this photo / roll in May of '86...It was for a cover story on them for The East Village Eye magazine...

Btw, I'm a big fan of Robert Otter ( 's Photography).. I'm friends' with his son, Ned, we both went to I.S,70 in the early-mid 70's... He seels his father's photos from a cart with a sign that reads 'Greenwich Village 1960's or something to that effect....I stand at that cart for like an hour at a time and talk about the buildings/ neighborhoods in each photo with Ned and just reminissce (sp?) I miss the old village and hate the new jack cornballs that have infested it... Props also to Glen E. Friedman who brought the Beastie photo thiong up to me....I'm a big fan of him and his photography as well...
