Edward Colver

ABOUT

You know Edward Colver. The name might not ring a bell, but you’ve seen his work: a portrait of Ice Cube or Andy Warhol, Henry Rollins thrashing while playing a Black Flag show, maybe grainy photos of a mosh pit. Wherever you’ve seen it, know that there is no one who documented the punk scene of the early 80s more assiduously than Edward Colver. A self-taught photographer who had work published only three months after picking up a camera, Colver’s photos illustrate punk from its earliest beginnings to its entrenchment as a full-fledged genre and scene. Waxing philosophical in his interview with FUN Artists, Colver discusses his personal “death of punk” that came in 1983, the progression of his art from photography to mixed media pieces, and his take on the appearance of some his most notable photos on T-shirts – without his permission. He’ll also tell you why he hasn’t watched TV since 1979; a hint: it has nothing to do with the cancellation of Hawaii Five-O.
