What to do in LA this weekend: Glen Friedman photo book launch

If you're in LA this weekend, head downtown to sixspace tomorrow night for the world premiere of The Idealist by Glen E. Friedman. The new book (which is totally gorgeous — I fondled one of the first copies a few weeks ago) gathers images spanning 25 years of Friedman's fine-art photography.

"Though he continues a heavy focus on both imagery and message, only a few of his traditional photographs of legendary people in the hip-hop, punk and skate communities will be recognized. The Idealist traces Friedman's development as a fine-artist as his subject matter includes a breathtaking international scope of landscapes, still life, and documentary."
