Glen E. Friedman photography show in SF thru Dec. 31

[Video Link]

If you find yourself traveling to San Francisco between now and New Year's Eve (or perhaps stranded there, as a result of the thousands of Snowpocalypse flight cancellations), do check out photographer Glen E.Friedman's FUCK YOU ALL show at Nine Four One Geary. Friedman is best known for his work from the '70s and '80s forward, documenting the roots of skate, punk, and hiphop subcultures (and the places where all three intersect).

Above, a short video clip by Colin M. Day, in which Friedman and his sometimes-collaborator Shepard Fairey are interviewed before the opening of the show.

Glen was smashed in the face for Christmas at the Venice skate park, first time ever after 35 years of shooting skaters. I caught up with him a few hours later, and he had a pretty righteous gash on his forehead. Read all about it here. But like a true pro, he kept shooting, before and during. One of the shots is below.

I have both, and they're gorgeous.
