Review

Glen E. Friedman, universally considered to be one of the most prominent photographers of his generation, is most well known for his influential images of rebellious artists from classic skateboarding, hip hop and punk. His photographs of key figures such as Fugazi, Black Flag, Public Enemy, Beastie Boys, Run-D.M.C., Ice- T, and Dead Kennedys, as well as skateboarding originators Tony Alva, Jay Adams and Stacy Peralta. All included in this his first groundbreaking hardcover book. Friedman's work is included in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Smithsonian Institution.

'Friedman's always been crazy' -- Tony Alva

'Truth and beauty reside where ever one is lucky enough to find them. Glen E. Friedman works overtime attempting to ferret them out and present their essential characteristics in a manner that others can learn from. This man's mission is to distill it all down and to then serve it straight up and right at you.' -- C.R. Steyck III

'When Friedman locks onto something it's absolutely scarey. He's one relentless motherfucker.' -- Ice T

From the Author

This classic book, my first hardcover, as well as FUCK YOU TOO is currently out of print, Well worth finding if you can.

That said the 2014 release of MY RULES (the book) will contain most of the best photographs from both FUCK YOU HEROES and FUCK YOU TOO, together in it's huge, 324 pages, as well as many additional photographs never before seen, unearthed classics from the archives.

More About the Author

Glen E. Friedman, (Born 1962) considered one of the most important photographers of his generation, became well known for working with such rebellious artists as Fugazi, Black Flag, Ice-T, Dead Kennedys, Minor Threat, Misfits, Bad Brains, Beastie Boys, Run-D.M.C, KRS-1, and Public Enemy, as well as old school skateboarders like: Tony Alva, Jay Adams, Alan "Ollie" Gelfand, Duane Peters, and Stacy Peralta, among others. Many of his photographs are recognized as the subjects' definitive portraits. His graphic documents of the movement in culture reveal the science of defiance upon which all are based. Friedman's photos reflect the spirit of progression and angst that defined an era. Not only was he in the right places at an extraordinary number of appropriate times, Friedman has helped define the moment and movements he was caught up in. His process was much more incendiary than it was documentary. According to Henry Rollins "The bottom line is that he was there at the beginning of so much cool stuff in so many different areas it's not funny."

"Inspiring people, with integrity and rebelliousness."
For the past quarter century, Friedman has been doing just that.
- Los Angeles Times

"One of the greats of his generation."
- Washington Post

"The most prolific photographer of his generation."
- American Institute of Graphic Arts

"The esoteric political and aesthetic conscience of his generation..."
- Juxtapoz magazine

Glen E. Friedman's captivating images demonstrate his remarkable eye for raw reality, talent and aesthetic beauty. He is, without doubt, one of this generation's most discerning and important photographers, Friedman has documented like no one else.

Format: Hardcover
This is probably the greatest compilation of original old school photos of the Hard Core heroes in Skate Boarding, Punk, and Hip-Hop. Friedman's photography and perspective as the ultimate insider on all that he shoots shows us the evidence we can't find anywhere else, particularly under one cover. From Jay Adams (Dogtown) to Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat, Fugazi) to Chuck D. (Public Enemy) and tons of others, how can you not own this book? The photography, and this book in general is in a class all it's own, head and shoulders above any other skate, punk or rap book of photos, and this one includes the best of all three genres. This book is a master piece and you'll be happy you got it, the greatest coffee table book for our generation.

Many photos that you may have seen, but never knew who took them. This guy has taken some of the most famous photos in the history of skateboarding and punk rock. The pics of Black Flag(Rollins w/ the mic in his mouth), and (Chuck D in prison are killer!) The hardcores will know what I'm talking about. Freidman Rules! Also, check out his Z - Boys book. It's great.

If you want to experience life in a different time, a life of music, fun, crime and lots of color, buy this book. Glen Friedman knows how to capture an angle that will put any photographer to shame. It's like a yearbook of every classic band you have ever loved.

Format: Hardcover
This book is amazing only an idiot would not recognize that. Photographs of the highest quality of all the most important Hardcore punks, Hip-Hop artists, and old school skateboarders from someone who lived the life, it's obvious. From Tony Alva to Black Flag, the Dead Kennedy's to the Beastie Boys, Jay Adams to Public Enemy. There is nothing like this anywhere and it's a must. Anyone interested in radical youth culture will love this book

This book is a classic. All it's claims are true. The most incredible pictures of the most incredible original dogtown skateboarders, the most radical hardcore punks in the heyday of hardcore, and the greatest hip hop artists of all time. All photographed with respect and integrity with a style like no one else, and everyone else can only aspire to and be inspired by.

I don't own this book myself, however I have seen it and I do own the second issue "*&^% you too". This is an essential work for anyone that grew up on punk rock, skateboarding, and in general displays a counter culture attitude that just says what else "&*^% you". Glen's eye catches that exact moment in time that completely makes you wish you were there. How many times can I look through for the most intense punk photos from Black Flag one of the sickest and most aggresive bands ever. This book also contains some old and classic skateboarding photography when the movement was just a baby. Glen also did a lot of work for early underground rap artist's and has shot many album covers that you will most likely recognize. Just get it for the Black Flag photos by itself.

This is a classic. If you're even looking at this page it's obvious this book is a must. What other book on the planet has pictures of Black Flag, Public Enemy and Z-Boy Jay Adams?

And all of it's other hard core icons. This is an incredible collection of excellent photographic quality.
