The BOOMBOX Project




I found NY based photographer/filmmaker, Lyle Owerko's BOOMBOXES photo portrait series of vintage ghettoblasters at Clic Gallery in NYC. Very COOL indeed. When I went to find out more, I was pleasantly surprised to hear that Lyle also has a book, "The Boombox Project" coming out October 2010.
"The book is more than just a collection of images, though; it’s also an oral history of the early days of hip-hop, featuring memories from Fab 5 Freddy, Bob Gruen, Rosie Perez, Kool Moe Dee, LL Cool J, Lisa Lisa, DJ Spooky, and Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys, among others, on the role this once ubiquitous machine played."~ via Abrams Books
Owerko's work is one you should know of. Visit his site to see more incredible stuff from him.
