Since the release of our first issue, in which iconic photographer Glen E. Friedman featured in a lengthy interview, the magazine has been steadily working to set up a live talk event with the photographer in Washington. When Glen’s latest monograph, MY RULES (Rizzoli, 2014) was published last year, launch events in New York and Los Angeles took place and knowing that a portion of Friedman’s work was shot in Washington or captured DC-related subjects, I felt the need to invite Glen to do an event with the magazine. Over the last year, the idea slowly matured and went through a few stalls but remained resolute. When the DC Punk Archive was instituted last year, I thought it would be a great place to have the talk, after all, they were having punk bands perform live, right in the lobby of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library.
As part of the one-year anniversary celebrations of the DC Punk Archive, HIGHWAY has collaborated with the new collection, along with support from The DC Public Library Foundation, to set up a live talk with the skate, punk and hip-hop photographer and Alec MacKaye (Untouchables, The Faith, Ignition).
On Sunday, October 25th, the live discussion will also feature a short video, Q & A session and time for book signing. Copies of MY RULES will be made available for sale courtesy of Upshur Street Books (who also stock HIGHWAY) and another HIGHWAY stockist, Smash! Records, will have a pop-up shop. This event will take place in The Great Hall.
Looking forward to seeing you there.
