Glen E Friedman Captures Fugazi For New Book
Posted by Molli Fire on Thursday, 7June07
It’s a book of photographs of the legendary punk band by an artist who is well known for capturing the most exciting action on still film. Whether he’s aiming at pioneer skaters Jay Adams or Tony Alva, or frenetic stage performers Minor Threat or Beastie Boys, Friedman’s camera has excellent perspective. This man has shot it all, and has the talent to portray the raw energy of the live experience. My esteem for both Fugazi and Friedman is in the upper atmosphere of esteem layers due to both going beyond what is necessary for their careers and truly caring about the audience’s experience of their medium. It will be wonderful to see the large glossy pages of this upcoming coffee table tome. I think I will have to add this to my wishlist!
The book will be officially released on the 3rd of September, 20 years on the day of the band’s first live show. (ISIS and Neurosis like to think they are veterans for being 10 years old, but 20 years and still touring, playing, and being super cool, that’s Fugazi…)
