The Boing Boing Video crew has been taking a few days off, and I thought today might be a good time to recap the four-part series we recently completed on punk/hiphop/skate photographer Glen. E. Friedman, and graphic artist Shepard Fairey. Sometimes they team up together, and that was the occasion for producing these episodes on both artists together. Above, part 3 in our series which focused on Glen's hardcore and skate culture photography. Below, the episode about a punk-themed collaboration between Shep and Glen around the band Bad Brains. If you missed any of these last week, check 'em out now!

PART 1: BB Video: Shepard Fairey and the Obama Poster, on Inauguration Day
PART 2: BB Video: Photographer Glen E. Friedman in Conversation (and Collaboration) with Shepard Fairey
PART 3: BB Video: Glen E. Friedman, Skate + Hardcore Punk Photo-History

    Wow. That is amazing. The photo of Ian McKaye in the video I bought from Glen several years ago. He had never printed it that big until I wanted a copy. I am sure the one in the show was printed at the same time. That is just a really cool video.

    Loved the anecdote about the Jay Adams photo where he’s lost the board, but they featured it just to stoke the skating world about going above the coping.

    sorry, haven’t watched it yet. is this the one with all the “fuck”s and “shit”s unbleeped?

    shepard had a decent segment on charlie rose last night, too. a little culture-clashy, but not bad.

    Putting up a video with Glen talking about punk and skateboarding without bleeping him would just fucking ruin that shit.
