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

Off-Topic Kid offers a just in case you missed it :


Such a powerful film.
LOTS of folks went down in flames much too early. Survival often times meant meeting that person/event/job that "kicked" you out of the lifestyle. Unfortunately that didn't happen for everyone; horrible to say that so much in life comes down to that ephemeral thing we call luck.
I was on the road much of the late 60s, and I can say that there were many enclaves of folks like these throughout Amerika....Philly, Cleveland, Chicago, Denver, LA and of course SanFrancisco. We were all experiencing the results of the major post-WWII re-designing of society, and the guidebook on how to think/behave/cope as a younger person hadn't been written yet. I think we're on the 34th edition, and we still can't seem to get it right.....still tryin' though, and that's something.


Thank you for posting, I watched the entire thing. That is one powerful piece of filmmaking. It brought together so many aspects of simple human existence and survival. Some things have changed, some have stayed the same. And you gotta love the character of those Jewish seniors. They don't make them like that anymore! I saw alot of that in my own family. Amazing people!

...Jack Gilford! God bless'im!!
