On this episode, host Joel Gausten welcomes legendary Los Angeles-based photographer Edward Colver for an in-depth talk about Edward's iconic work with numerous Punk, Hardcore, Rap and Alternative acts. A small sampling of Edward's vast list of photographed artists is reflected in this episode's playlist (see below). The conversation revolves around numerous images from Edward's book, Blight At The End Of The Funnel, available for purchase at edwardcolver.com.
Some of Edward's classic photos are currently on display at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles as part of the exhibit, "Who Shot Rock & Roll," running now through October 21. More information on this can't-miss exhibit is available at annenbergspaceforphotography.org.
