7 p.m.

From the birth of seminal bands such as Black Flag, Minor Threat and Public Enemy, to the gravity-defying feats of skateboarding trailblazers like Tony Alva, Duane Peters and Stacy Peralta—photographer Glen E. Friedman was there to capture, chronicle and create art as part of subcultures that defined the 1980s and beyond.

Fans of contemporary photography and the history of 20th-century counterculture should not miss the chance to
welcome Friedman to town for this special event on Friday night at the Harris Theater.

During a public discussion and Q & A, Friedman is expected to talk about his artwork, creative process, career and background. Friedman’s books will be for sale at the event.

One of the most significant photographers of his generation, Friedman is acclaimed for his highly influential images of iconic artists spanning skateboarding, hip hop and punk rock. His fine art photography has been published in six books, on album covers and is featured in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive.

Co-presented with Pittsburgh Filmmakers, the event is part of the FULLTIME lecture series created by Commonwealth Press, Sapling Press and strawberryluna.
