Keep Calm and Carry On was a motivational poster produced by the British government in 1939 in preparation for World War II. The poster was intended to raise the morale of the British public, threatened with widely predicted mass air attacks on major cities. COVID-19 has created a similar situation, where we are in a world war against an invisible enemy. The importance of mental and physical health is the idea I want to convey with my updated version of the iconic poster. You can send a positive message while making a fashion statement by wearing a high quality t-shirt or hoodie with this design. https://teespring.com/wear-keep-calm-wash-your-han

A very Happy Birthday to my friend, the amazing Kate Pierson! I first photographed her performing with the B52s at Irving Plaza in 1978. She has such a powerful voice and she's such a positive person. This is my 2015 photograph of her performing at the Mudd Club reunion at the The Roxy Hotel. Many Happy Returns, Kate!

I'm honored to be interviewed on the Marc and Myra show on Sirius XM Radio's Studio 54 channel for the fourth time! We are talking about my nightlife photography work which is currently exhibited in the "Disco at 50" show at the Morrison Hotel Gallery in Soho and starting March 13th in "Studio 54: Night Magic" at the Brooklyn Museum. The interview and my playlist will be premiering February 23 at 10pm EST. If you don't have Sirius XM satellite radio, you should get and listen to it in your car and on your computer or phone. It's surprisingly inexpensive and well worth it for the variety of music and talk, all commercial-free. #photojournalism #photographs #photography #newyork #manhattan #nightlife #scene #1970s #studio54 #disco #music #fun #dance #rsdio #interview #siriusxm #satellite #funkytown

Happy Birthday to Yoko Ono, who turns 87 today. The love that she and John Lennon shared was so strong and true. All I can say is that she means a lot to me. Thanks, Yoko, for all you've done. I took this photo during the filming of the video for "Starting Over" from the Double Fantasy album on November 26, 1980.

February 11, 1990, Cape Town, South Africa: Accompanied by his wife Winnie, Nelson Mandela leaves prison after serving a sentence of 26 years.

From my early days as a motorcycle photojournalist: April 10, 1972, Braselton, Georgia: French-Canadian racer Yvon Duhamel leads the 125 mile road race through the esses at Road Atlanta on his neon green Kawasaki. Interesting in that there is no butt-shifting or knee-dragging. Photograph ©️1972 Allan Tannenbaum all rights reserved. #photojournalism #photographs #photography #motorcycle #moto #race

January 15, 2020, Praia do Norte, Nazaré, Portugal: Surfers challenge big Atlantic winter swells at Praia do Norte. These waves aren't the super gigantic record-breaking ones that put Nazaré on the map, but they're quite impressive. The men and women who surf them are really amazing athletes who put on a great show.

I'm honored to have my 1968 Norton Commando 20M3 featured in the February 2020 issue of Classic Bike magazine. Last month they ran my photo features that I shot and wrote 47 years ago about my visits to the Norton factory in Andover and the Ducati factory in Bologna. Be sure to pick up a copy!

I'm posting this story again because I just received this shot of me that I really like by photographer Grayson Dantzic. I'm still so pleased to be part the new photography exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York. "Collecting New York's Stories: Stuyvesant to Sid Vicious" is a group show featuring prints from the museum's permanent collection. My photographs include John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Debbie Harry and Chris Stein, A Bronx motorcycle gang, Lower East Side gangs, and Sid Vicious. Curator Sean Corcoran did an amazing job putting this show together. If you like New York City photography, it's worth the trip to 5th Avenue and E. 104th St. Photograph ©2020 Grayson Dantzic. #photography #photographs #photojournalism #photographer#newyorkcity #manhattan #1970s #rockstar #badass #punkrock #punk#newwave #portrait #blackandwhitephotography #blondie#debbieharry #johnlennon #yokoono #sidvicious #gangs #exhibition#prints @morrisonhotelgallery @debbieharrydaily @johnlennonofficial @seanc74 @mr_musichead

Sid Vicious of the Sex Pistols under arrest by the NYPD for the murder of Nancy Spungeon in 1978. I took this photo after photographing the removal of her body from the Chelsea Hotel earlier in the day. A print of this image is in the permanent collection of the Museum of the City of New York, and their exhibition "Collecting New York's Stories: Stuyvesant to Sid Vicious" opens January 22, 2020.

Happy Birthday to Keith Richards on his 76th. This is my photo of Keith with the Rolling Stones at Danceteria promoting "Emotional Rescue" in 1980. Keith is holding his bottle of Jack Daniels Youth Elixir, which I grabbed when they got up to leave. (I drank it!) Photograph ©1980 Allan Tannenbaum all rights reserved.

I'd photographed production of the Norton Commando motorcycle at the Norton factory in Andover back in 1972. That same year I photographed at the new Ducati factory in Bologna, Italy, where they were just introducing their V-twin 750 Sport. At the time I also wrote two stories for Motorcyclist Magazine in the USA, but they did not publish them. I've been digitizing my negatives of both factories, but, much to my chagrin, I could not find my original manuscripts. Several weeks ago, my dear wife was making me organize my files, and she accidentally knocked over a pile of papers. There were the stories, right on top! So I submitted everything to Classic Bike Magazine in the U.K., and they loved it. Please pick up the January 2020 issue of CB available December 18th to see the eight-page spread featuring my photographs and not half-bad writings. Here is a photo of me on the new 750 Sport. #photojournalism #photographs #photography #motorcycle #norton #commando #badass #ducati #italian #british #classic #moto #caferacer #caferacersofinstagram #nortonmotorcycles #nortoncommando #bologna

Tonight we attended the opening of "The Tribeca Show" at Apexart Gallery in, yep, Tribeca. My six historic photographs are part of a group exhibition meant to undertake a "debranding of Tribeca to counter the area's overhyped reputation for trendiness and glamour." That it does, along with debranding the five photographers. The gallery has an incomprehensible policy of not putting the artist's names next to their work. Same for captions. WTF?

Last night Debora and I were driving upstate when we passed a truck lit up like a Broadway marquee. We were pleased that the driver stopped for fuel where we did so that we could get a closer look at this beautiful behemoth. Besides the plethora of lights, it was decorated with script saying "Rocket Man", "Never Enough", and "K J Style". Keep on truckin'!

One World Trade Center as seen from our bedroom windows eighteen years after the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Debora and I will never forget the sound of the jet crashing into the north tower and the sight of the explosion. God rest the souls of all those killed that day and those who died since from Ground Zero toxic exposures.

This week is the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center that killed 3,000 people and have caused many more deaths due to Ground Zero toxic exposures. Yesterday I witnessed the Father Mychal Judge Walk of Remembrance in honor of the FDNY chaplain who suffered a heart attack during the WTC rescue operation. Never forget the heroes of the WTC, Pentagon, and Shanksville, and the innocent people who lost their lives to terrorism. #photojournalism #photographs #photography #remember #911 #worldtradecenter #september11 #fdny #firstresponders #hero #terror #groundzero #wtc #memorial #neverforget
