Those unfamiliar with the world of photography – especially as it relates to this culture – would do well to start with Glen E. Friedman. Widely considered one of the pre-eminent photographers of his time, Friedman has covered the canon of skateboarding, hardcore punk music, and later on, hip-hop. Throughout the years, it’s become evident that the American photographer has an eye for burgeoning subcultures – and we’re thankfully all the richer for it. Slam City Skates has just released an exclusive interview with Friedman, recorded in light of his current exhibition in London dubbed “My Rules.” Head over to the Slam City Skates website to read through this insightful account, as Friedman talks almost ruining a Public Enemy album cover, skating with Jay Adams, and fighting generational apathy.
