The Boombox Project

On the heels of the graffiti renaissance comes a vibrant look at an old-school icon that figured prominently in the hip-hop, rock & roll, and punk movements of the 1970s and 80s. The Boombox Project by Lyle Owerko, a photographer, 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.  This short film directed by Paul Stone and presented by Dropculture.com is a conversation with Lyle Owerko and the project.
