OBEY has teamed up with one of photography’s most iconic geniuses, Glen E. Friedman to create a four segment apparel collection influenced by his unique craft. Known for shooting some of the most memorable photos in the world’s of skateboarding, punk rock, hip hop and over the last 30 years, Glen’s photography has depicted the impact of pioneers from the realms being.

 “Glen E. Friedman is considered one of the most important photographers of his generation. I’ve been honored to collaborate with him many times over the years. I admire his idealism, anti-conformist stance, and his choices in photo subjects from skateboarding, punk rock, hip-hop, and progressive activism…the cultures that made me who I am. We made these shirts to celebrate the release of his new book that I helped design. Glen demonstrates tremendous conviction in his work and I’m grateful to be able to visually amplify the iconic qualities of his photos and their subjects through my illustration.”

 With the release of Glen’s new book, My Rules an apparel collaboration seemed perfect. In support of My Rules OBEY has released 4 of Glen’s works, that represent a different genre spanning from; pro-skater Tony Alva from Dogtown and skateboarding, Henry Rollins from Black Flag, political activist Cornell West and the influential Hip-Hop group, Public Enemy.

Taking Firedman’s photos and blending them with the artistic skill of Fairey is pure genius. Set to his select retailers World-Wide this month, Obey presents their Glen E. Friedman collaboration.

 

Tony Alva – One of the most incredible trailblazers of the sport of all time. Alva was the first skateboarder ever inducted to the “Skateboarding Hall of Fame”, and the first Skateboarder ever voted “Skateboarder of the Year”, The first Skateboarder to do aerials in pools. A precision stylist whose influence will never diminish. Alva set standards when there were none and helped the sport progress like few others.

Henry Rollins – One of the most important punk rock front men of all time. Henry took Black Flag to popularity they had not seen before his arrival from his humble beginnings in Washington DC as one of the founders of that incredible hardcore scene. Since forming the “Rollins Band” and his own publishing company, writing for major publications and hosting culturally relevant television programming, Henry is a true renaissance man of our time.

Public Enemy – The group who helped to forge a political and cultural awakening in Hip-Hop and culture at large, while making some of the most incredibly dynamic recordings of our time. Their second album “It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back” is often referred to as the greatest and most important Hip-Hop album of all time. The group’s front man Chuck D. is clearly one of the most respected voices of his generation.

Dr. Cornel West – A hero to many, Dr. West is a prominent and provocative, celebrated American philosopher activist, and public intellectual. He has authored more than twenty books. He has taught at Yale, Harvard, Princeton, and the University of Paris. His radical rebel status can be summarized by his admission that indeed he is “suspicious of all forms of authority”.
