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

There is only ONE possible good thing about this's a bit twisty, so ride with me here.....
IF I understand the waxing phenomena correctly, you have to have some bucks to be able to affortd it (especially if you have it done repeatedly).....
IF I understand the waxing procedure correctly, there is a not insignificant amount of pain to endure....
and IF I understand the history of the Cedar Tavern correctly, there are many spirits still residing there.....


EVERY time an overly-folliculed, overly-monied, more cash than brains, Yuppie/Muppie Scum SCREAMS out in pain during the procedure, the spirits of past Cedar Tavern patrons will get a measure of REVENGE on the VERY people who destroyed their/your shrine.

How'd I do?


And since my mind is experiencing some rarified level of consciousness here this about THIS flyer about THE STENCIL....

Seems to me in my travels around the city at various times in my lifr, this type of stencil was wide-spread, and ever changing from one period of time to another.
My idea is that, not unlike a couple of other examples, this stencil is NOT of a particular artist, but of an image as a representation of either an artistic style, or more likely a "branding" image for an artist collective/co-op, or even a "movement".
Having proposed this as simply brainstorming the challenge, it may just be the alternative definition of a movement....IF you catch my drift :+)

Break a leg with the hunt!
