Just got the new monograph, MY RULES by Glen E Friedman.
Fabo, huge, important, big, coffee table book.
Tony Alva at Dog Bowl. As seen in Skateboarder. 1978.
I was a devotee of Skateboarder magazine because of photos like this by Friedman and accompanying essays by Craig Stecyk. My wife (ex) never got it. 30 years old and riding skateboard….When Stacy Peralta’s Dog Town and Z Boys came out in 2001, I told my ex to go see it. She still didn’t get it and laughed when I told her I just bought a new longboard. I was 50, revisiting the stoke. The stoke is revealed in every Glen Friedman shot. Skate, Punk, Rap, from hardcore action to sublime, reflective portraiture. MY RULES rules.
