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

After buying it every Wednesday for what seemed like ages, it seems to lose it relevance once it was handed out free. Sorry to see it go nonetheless.


I wondered if something was up. This past summer, every time I passed by a Village Voice news box, it was empty. I figured there should still be some copies left on, say, a Thursday morning, but put it to "Hey, you're slowing down and don't live in the 'hood anymore, so there." But yeah, I stopped following the Voice regularly after the last changeup in ownership. Some great writing came out of it, but it also started resembling those freebie broadsheets guys try to hand you as you come out of the Times Square station: too many ads for nail salons, karaoke bars, and "Tuesday Ladies' Nite," while the shows got buried in the back. Also, the political stories seemed to miss the point. (No, Bernie didn't get the nomination, but you actually think Jill Stein was a candidate based in reality?) Anyway, too bad. I wish now I had kept some of the old paper issues from the 80s.

I have a few, including one with a lengthy interview with Jerry Nolan of the Dolls.
