Bruce Davidson Time of Change: 1961-1965 opened at The Robert Koch Gallery in San Francisco last week. Davidson, who was featured in our special June 2013 Beastie Boys issue, traveled by bus with the anti-segregationist Freedom Riders from Montgomery, Alabama to Jackson, Mississippi and chronicled what later became known as the Civil Rights Movement. The following year Davidson received a Guggenheim Fellowship, which allowed him to further document the African-American struggle for equal opportunity throughout the country.

Another look into the archives of our print edition in 2013 brings us to one of our favorite issues of the year, the June 2013 Beastie Boys issue. We covered the history behind the iconic album covers and artwork that help create the visual identity of the band, and one of the most unlikely but profound covers was 1994's Ill Communication shot by Magnum photographer, Bruce Davidson. Shot years before, the ADRock loved Davidson's work, and chose this image of the man speaking into the intercom... the rest is in Davidson's words.

The Juxtapoz June 2013 issue, a visual history of the Beastie Boys and tribute to MCA, is now officially on newsstands. As we compiled the issue, our contributing editor Joey Garfield put together a short clip from his interviews featuring some of the artists who contributed to the visual identity of the band. This is the history of the Beastie Boys, in their voices, from Bruce Davidson to Cey Adams, Glen E Friedman to Ricky Powell.

Today we are very pleased to show an inside look at our very special June 2013 issue, Beastie Boys: A Visual History + Tribute to MCA. For the special issue, we have interviewed every album cover artist, from Polly Wog Stewto Hot Sauce Committee Part Two, inner-sleeve artists, photographers, and even feature some of the outtakes that went into every album cover. We find the inside stories of how each album came to fruition through the experiences and artwork of each artist that is now part of the Beastie Boys canon. The issue was curated and compiled by our contributing editor-at-large, Joey Garfield.

Magnum photographer Bruce Davidson has a collection of his legendary Subway images on view now at the Tate Modern in London. We hurried over to check them out while in the UK and also came across a killer Andy Warhol room, literally covered from floor to ceiling with…cows.
