“Contact High: A Visual History of Hip-Hop” by Vikki Tobak

November 15, 2018 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


From Salt-N-Pepa in Dapper Dan jackets to Kanye West in a bear suit for his College Dropout album cover, Tobak’s photo book takes vivid hip-hop photographs and pairs them with outtakes from the shoots, telling a deeper story than a single image can convey. At this event, Tobak will talk about rap’s visual impact with Danny Hastings, who has shot Nas and Wu-Tang Clan album covers, and music documentarian Janette Beckman.
