“DEVO has always been a misunderstood phenomena. We weren’t trying to do what most people thought we were trying to do, and what we did wasn’t what most people thought they were seeing. This book, besides being a coherent exposition of how we were officially presented by “the entertainment industry,” represents an attempt, akin to a post-plan crash autopsy, to lay things out and let people see what was inside the suitcase.” - Mark Mothersbaugh Photo: Polaroid test shot, 1981. Register now for the first and only official book by and about DEVO, packed with unseen images drawn from extensive DEVO archives. http://devobook.net/#register

Rian Dundon writes: "It was a time when homegrown fashion and music—and swagger—were just beginning to coalesce into the international movement we know today. From the mid-1970s, (photographer Jamel) Shabazz roamed the streets of his city snapping portraits, his eye drawn to youth posturing and camaraderie, neighborhood style with an unmistakable Big Apple attitude. Composed snapshots show women and men presenting themselves in ways they wanted to be seen—their image self-determined, not imposed by the agenda of a visiting journalist." https://timeline.com/photos-real-get-down-147da4097450#.viuk9t4nt
