If you follow punk rock or skateboarding, you’re probably familiar with the kinetic, evocative photographs of Glen E. Friedman. Friedman’s work has documented decades of punk history, and has contributed to some of the most defining images of an era. This summer brings with it new editions of his books DogTown: The Legend of the Z-Boys and Keep Your Eyes Open: The Fugazi Photographs of Glen E. Friedman.
