Jay Adams, shot by Glen E. Friedman in 1976.
Photographer Glen E. Friedman, whose work we featured in a four-part Boing Boing TV series back in 2009, is best known for documenting early Dogtown skateboard culture in the late 1970s and the hip-hop and punk scenes of the '80s and '90s.
His subjects have included the likes of Jay Adams and Tony Alva; Run-DMC, Public Enemy and the Beastie Boys; Minor Threat and Black Flag, and many others. A show of his work titled "Fuck You All" will open at San Francisco's 941 Geary Galley on November 6th 2010 (reception from 6-9pm), and continue through December 31, 2010. This exhibition will be the first time that Friedman's collaborations with Shepard Fairey will be presented along with the original photographs on which the collaborations are based. Not to be missed.

Adobe Flash, the clunky and unsearchable interactive plugin tech, was always bad. Its presence on a website guaranteed a user interface disaster, an unblockable ad, or general bloated shonkiness. But it was also liberating, making animation and programming accessible in a way unseen since the days of 8-bit computers with BASIC built-in. Flash Is Responsible […]
