Glean E. Friedmand and Shepard Fairey art reception.
941 Geary Gallory
Opening reception 6-9 PM - November 6th.
Glen E. Friedman is one of the most signiﬁcant photographers of his generation. His images of the early Dogtown skateboarders in the late 1970s along with the burgeoning hip-hop and punk rock scenes of the 80s and 90s have made him one of the most important photographers today. With the uncanny ability to capture images of people whose subculture was about to change the world, his subjects range from Jay Adams and Tony Alva to Run DMC, Public Enemy and the Beastie Boys to Minor Threat and Black Flag, among many others. Over the years, Friedman has been able to capture the moments of the movements that deﬁned an era. This has cemented his place in history as an uncompromising, extremely gifted artist.
