Curated by URB Magazine, Eras+Omissions: 1976-2006 is three photographer’s upfront views of their surroundings during distinct shifts of style, music and street culture over the last 30 years. Through a series of exhibits featuring vivid and raw photographic work, URB aims to celebrate the sub cultures, parallel scenes and underground rumblings not always acknowledged in pop culture. Eras+Omissions:1976-2006 will kick off during the Project Global Tradeshow at the Javitz Center in New York City.

In the late '70s when punk music was exploding in New York and London, little focus was on Los Angeles. But LA was booming with diverse bands, killer fashion and non-stop live shows featuring both local and international punk stars. In 1980's New York, street culture was coming of age as the hip-hop movement, crack, AIDS and the downtown art scene all collided into a sweltering pot of style and urban expression. Part b-boy romanticism, part '80s mishap, the flavors of the day we essentially the building blocks of modern hip-hop fashion and aesthetic. And in the post millennium, these two bygone eras reincarnate with both pop and hipster credibility for days. Yesterday's skinny jeans, torn T's, big sunglasses and slip-on Vans are now the post-modern retro flavor of the minute.

Ricky Powell (rickypowell.com), Jenny Lens (jennylens.com) and Mark the Cobrasnake (thecobrasnake.com) all set out with cameras in hand to capture their respective eras. And in doing so, established themselves as brand names in the archives of youth culture. Eras+Omissions:1976-2006 is a look through their lens at the style and substance of a moment, captured just as instantaneous as their flash did 30 years or 10 minutes ago. From the backstage antics and rock regalia of LA's proto punks to the indie hipster parade of semi-beautiful people swimming in cans of beer at Lower East Side dives. fashion lives in these images, often in its most honest and unrehearsed form.

"Eras and Omissions makes perfect sense for Project New York,” says Sam Ben-Avraham, founder and president, Project Global Tradeshow. "Project is about the business of style and so much of Eras and Omissions is reflected, in both design and inspiration, through the clothes that canvas the show." URB founder/publisher and creative director Raymond Leon Roker adds, "Our collective style is a result of youth culture’s decades-long evolutionary path of underground movements eventually reaching the runways and retail." Roker adds, "Project achieves a deft balance of street couture, upfront and relevant fashion and urban sophistication. It's a perfect backdrop for Eras and Omissions and vice versa."
