Skart Attack

Following on from our last post, all you culture vultures out there should cruise over to BoingBoing and check out the new four part series of videos focussing on Shepard Fairey and photographic genius Glen E. Friedman, based on conversations held around Friedman's exhibition at Shep's Subliminal Projects space.

There's another discussion of Shep's Obama portrait (and you can watch Shep get grilled by legendary interviewer Charlie Rose about his poster, and the rest of his work HERE), and Friedman discusses how he got into photography through skateboarding and punk rock and his work for practically every seminal hip-hop artist/act, including repeated shots of the Beastie Boys, Public Enemy, Run DMC and just about everybody else on Def Jam when it started.

Check Friedman's work out here and peep the video on skate and punk rock photography below:

The other videos are on BoingBoing, or on their YouTube channel, and you can even subscribe to their daily podcast .

Watch and learn.
