Editorial Reviews

Review

Everyone know the old saying, "A picture is worth a thousand words." It couldn't be more true with this pictorial retrospective of Fugazi, one of the most influential bands from teh 20th century. Fugazi's career and DIY ethic are captured in photographs of gigs from their hometown of Washington, D.C. and abroad. It'll also most likely impress your crush as a coffee-table book in your dorm room. --Alternative Press

They say that timing is everything. Act at precisely the right moment and you re bound to come up with something original, urgent and, if you re lucky, absolutely truthful. While many artists lack instinct, forty-five-year-old photographer Glen E. Friedman has built a career on perfect timing knowing just when and where to capture the moment that otherwise would have gone undocumented. His impeccable eye, paired with his heart and ability to decipher between what is and isn t genuine, have allowed him to capture some of our generation s most important images. Skate, punk, hip-hop Glen s presence at the dawn of each subculture can never be replicated. Fugazi were totally different from Minor Threat but they were like a whole new level. He had a different group of guys but still had that same intensity, says Glen about the first time he saw Fugazi. I forgot my camera that first show, but I vowed to bring it to every other show to help spread their inspiration around. Over the following years Friedman would go on to shoot Fugazi endlessly both on and off the stage, and many of these images feature in Keep Your Eyes Open. The book contains some 200 colour and black and white shots showcasing a spectrum of moments, ranging from on-stage ferocity, to candid portraits of the guys on tour. Being close friends with the band, Glen was able to capture a certain honesty and intimacy that is carried wholeheartedly throughout the book. In a world where success and timing supposedly go hand in hand, Glen E. Friedman has added heart, soul and truth to the equation documenting the result for the world to see. --Huck Magazine

From the Back Cover

"While most photographers were taking photos of Fugazi, Glen was making photos with us." - Ian MacKaye

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.

The one curse is that as a New Yorker, many of the pictures are not from DC with the band. Still has from the beginning to the end of their run, in great action and band shots.

There's a massive rip in the first page like between the hardcover & paper. Must've been a manufacturing fault but otherwise i'm happy with it
