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

Ok....I'm a little confused (as I'm hearing a chorus from my buddies "So.....what's new":+).....about exactly what I'm looking at in this post.

Either :

A relatively happy and healthy group of New York stalwarts (including the oh-so-cute offspring) braving the elements to re-establish contact with their devastated neighborhood and some kind of outside world; seeking relief from the aftermath of a TRUE Storm Of The Century.


A giggling, semi-exhausted troglodite tribal family unit stumbling into the light ; overwhelmed by their strength to bend traffic poles, they raid the Reade for free vittles ; marauding uptown establishments loading up on the essentials of candles, batteries and BEER!

Maybe some WONDERFUL combo of the above filtered through the amazing SOPA (South Of POwer) community spirit that it seems even WHOOO or hurricanes can't kill.

(And really, EXCELLENT mix of pics. We got hit HARD by the Great Ice Storm in the late 90s.....ALWAYS strange to not be able to see down a street for all the fallen trees.)

Keep on chooglin'!

Metal Dad
