THE BOOMBOX PROJECT
It’s hard to think back to a time when mp3 players and cellphones weren’t so prevalent. A time when the only portable music came blaring out of a passing car stereo, or, even better, out of a boombox! Canadian-born photographer, Lyle Owerko, explores that time and the powerful urban history associated with it in his new book, The Boombox Project: The Machines, The Music, And The Urban Underground. Okay Hip-Hop heads, it’s time to put down the iPod and listen to some history!
