Fugazi, one of music’s most revolutionary and gloriously indefinable bands, played their first concert on September 3, 1987. KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN presents the best of Friedman’s unparalleled photographic documentation of Fugazi’s members in almost 200 colour and black-and-white images captured onstage and off between 1986 and Fugazi’s last US concert in 2002. Fugazi evolved from Washington, DC’s, hardcore punk scene of the late 1970s and early 1980s. While it would be impossible to fully capture Fugazi in any one medium, Friedman’s book effectively complements the band’s Dischord Records catalog, which includes seven studio albums, one soundtrack, three EPs, and hundreds of live concert CDs produced from Fugazi’s own soundboard recordings.
The first edition of the book was released in 2007 on the 20th anniversary of Fugazi’s first show). As of 2019, a second edition has been released which includes a new interview with Glen E. Friedman & Ian MacKaye. The almost 200-page, hardcover book presents the best of Friedman’s unparalleled photographic documentation of Fugazi’s members in almost 200 color and black & white images captured by Friedman on-stage and off between 1986 and Fugazi’s last U.S. concert in 2002.
“Glen E. Friedman is considered one of the most important photographers of his generation, world-renowned for his prescient documentation of many of recent history’s most iconic movements in pop culture. Among other worthy subjects, his lens has captured moments in the birth and evolution of radical skateboarding, hardcore punk, and hip-hop, as Friedman played a firsthand role in their development.”
