Capturing a Culture,
A photographic history of countercultures, Pt. 1
"Radical skateboarding captured by Glen E Friedman"

from Arté TV

Last week i began posting links in the original French and German versions and on Sunday attempted to post the entire series here on the blog, not sure if that worked for everyone, so now that i have the english versions I can embed, here we go with my three parts over the next few days. This is the first episode. Let us know what you think.

In 1975, 14-year-old Glen E. Friedman spends his days crisscrossing the streets of Los Angeles on his skateboard, his Kodak Instamatic dangling from his wrist. From the schoolyards in Dogtown to the empty swimming pools in Beverly Hills, with his band of buddies known as the Z-Boys, he unwittingly photographs the birth and development of the modern skating movement.
