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

Hear hear.

A case of 'everything that is wrong with everything'.

Martin

Well said.

GEF

AGREED! nice one Alex.

William Score

Yes! Finally someone says it! Violence is the answer to free speech!

Alex in NYC

Ah yes, ... free speech.

Mr. Score, if so much of what you read here offends you, why do you keep coming back?

William Score

Hi Alex, not offended here... just like to watch you confused losers trainwreck yourselves

Alex in NYC

Lovely. Well, in the interest of free speech, I'll go ahead and publish that comment, but I'd respectfully ask to keep your slights to a minimum.

And to be clear, my comment about getting punched in the face for wearing this stupid shirt doesn't equate with my condoning such an act, but I can certainly see it happening. And while, yes, free speech certainly enables one to say and wear such messages, but it's not a license to behave like a tone-deaf, insensitive asshole. You, of course, may beg to differ.

William Score

Sorry to have to break the news to you but free speech includes tone-deaf insensitivity... And to educate you further, get it right: the vast majority of black/brown people HATE YOU. We (and I include myself only because of my skin color, not because I think the same) don't care what you tweet or if you light a candle while crying because "BLM"... You better just keep coming with the EBT payments or else! It's embarrassing and I hate it and I wish it wasn't so but there it is

Alex in NYC

Like I said, .... you may beg to differ.

William Score

Thank you, I do respect that you didn't delete these comments. (Now if only the rest of the USSA felt the same way!)

Alex in NYC

Well, y'know ... it's a dialogue. We've never met, but I'm sure there's a lot we actually agree on. We can still be civil and learn from each other, ... not to sound all Kumbayah about it.

White American Jewish Dude

God forbid a minority group should want to publicize its own plight. I never understood why there was so much backlash to the BLM movement...until I saw who was doing the 'lashing. And yes, I intentionally said "lashing."

Was Proxy

BLM is a movement that DESERVES discrediting and ridicule as much as any other org that is misguided and inherently racist. Although I will admit I liked the BLACK OLIVES MATTER sign at that Italian restaurant better.
