Editorial Reviews

Review

"Friedman’s latest book My Rules...was nothing short of amazing. This is literally a book that every skateboarder, musician and cultural enthusiast must get their hands on. It is more than worth it." -Juice Magazine

"I don’t normally write posts and say “you must own this!” but… you’ve gotta get this! Glen E. Friedman’s new My Rules (Rizzoli) is simply stunning. A real masterpiece! It was a very pleasant—and unexpected—surprise indeed. The book is a glorious MONSTER, with huge color photographs and amazing B&W images. Glen’s work splendidly captures historic moments in time." -DangerousMinds.net

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.

This book is IMMENSE and surely will take considerable time to digest, but first impressions are very positive. I knew I was in for a treat when I saw the tracking info noted the package weighed nearly eight pounds. Clear your coffee table and get ready to get lost in this. Here we have so many classic photographs, some we've seen and some new, but all presented in new ways regardless. The original written contributions from some of the subjects pictured within are worth the price of admission alone. The "embossed" cover texture is a great touch, literally. Those fortunate to own copies of Glen's older books and the original MY RULES 'zine will be happy to add this to their collection. For those who haven't had a chance to view this body of work, or those younger fans who are just discovering the artists Glen has helped share with the world, this is a fantastic place to start. Get it!

This book is a huge tome of photos from the 80's and early 90's chronicling Punk, Skating, and Hip Hop for those of us who wish they could have been there but couldn't for lack of years. Being 5 years old at the time I couldn't have caught Minor Threat at CBGB or Run DMC at the Palladium but there are plenty of photos from that time and place and many others in this book. Having plenty of friends who feel the same way I expect this book will see some serious use from guests leafing through it.

The construction and print quality are good. Photos fill entire pages with unobtrusive captions. Commentary from the various musicians and skaters pictured are interspersed but the book is easily 90% photos. Color quality is good, pages seem sturdy. Can't argue with the price point either. 35 bucks gets you a pretty hefty book.

This is a masterwork. Not only the photos - many seen before, but also many new ones - but the sequencing, written contributions from artists, and packaging make this an absolute must-have for any fan of Glen E. Friedman. If you're interested in seeing or learning about the most monumental forces in the history of punk, hardcore, skating and rap, this is the quintessential photography collection. I could not put the book down once I started flipping through and look forward to looking at, and reading in more detail for years to come. Kudos to Glen E. Friedman for not only the amazing photos he's captured and shared, but for the presentation and effort in putting out this outstanding, must-have book.
