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

You'll have to ask Brooke. Otherwise this will eat at you for years to come. The public has a right to know.


i'd ask her in a second, that is if i was stupid enough to even think it's her! Plenty of girls looked similar in that position back then, it's really just the eye brows, no? Who in NY had a tan like that back then? Not a famous actress? And for the record, seriously, not even the band members themselves trust everything their own manager says, certainly wouldn't be the first manager of an artist to try and shine positive light on his client. Good PR for both though, so they might as well run with it, until the real female subject of the photo stands up and let's everyone know. Seriously Brooke hung out with Michael Jackson around this time, you really think in the same decade she's be in a room SMOKING with H.R.? Hell fucking no.... that was a fun waste of time.

I imagine there was no shortage of healthy, well-brought up trustafarian gals and guys kicking around Manhattan at this time (there still are today, after all,) and the Brooke look was one you'd probably find in abundance at many east coast prep schools, so I'm thinking not Brooke, in this case.
