The Boombox Project by Lyle Owerko

Lyle Owerko The Boombox Project 610x711 500x597 The Boombox Project by Lyle Owerko
The Boombox Project features contemporary fine art portraits of an array of vintage boomboxes, as well as scores of documentary photographs of the people who brought the boombox movement to life back in the day. New York based photographer Lyle Owerko put together this book with historic shots by Jamel Shabazz, Ricky Flores, Josh Cheuse, and Lisa Beck with a forward by Spike Lee. 

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.
