Janette Beckman – New York Times

20150402-lens-hiphop-slide-H7YU-superJumbo

1980s, Janette Beckman, an expat punk photographer from London, amassed a portfolio of burgeoning New York rap acts like the Cold Crush Brothers, Big Daddy Kane and Public Enemy. It was a labor of love for Ms. Beckman, who had visited New York a few years earlier and was so entranced by the beginnings of hip-hop that she never left. She later collected those images in a book, but she challenges you to find a copy of it today.

“We couldn’t sell it to anyone,” Ms. Beckman said. “Back then, there was not one thought in my mind hip-hop would become this massive thing.”

Was she wrong.

Ms. Beckman’s early portraits are now on display in “Hip-Hop Revolution” at the Museum of the City of New York, alongside the work of Joe Conzo Jr. and Martha Cooper, photographers whose images from the 1970s through the 1990s document parties and dances that began in empty lots and playgrounds and went on to become part of global youth culture.

Atiba Jefferson: Lonely Wanderer

Skate photography can be limited by its environment: incandescent street lights, pedestrians, and handrails among other urban barriers. This particular craft compensated for these obstacles and maximized action and consequently took the form of fisheye perspective, oblique ground angles, and wide panoramas. Contemporary practice has become so perfected that street images have attained a studio finish of painstakingly perfected lighting and dramatically staged composition. Atiba Jefferson, beginning as a self-taught hobbyist photographer from small town Colorado, entered the field at this pivotal moment becoming a major influencer in this aestheticization of digital skateboard photography.

Andrew Reynolds suspended in mid-execution of his Frontside Flip in Vancouver surrounded by an innumerable wall of ragged spectators is frozen at the apex frame, decisively timed and impossibly composed. This image has since compounded Reynold’s mythologization, and in turn, lives in the collective experience of what it feels like to watch someone “land it.” It’s also a reminder that there’s still an instinctual value and awe with using photography as a way of preserving an ephemeral, and for a lot of viewers, culturally monumental moment. Atiba has since photographed an impressive range of individuals of athletes and musicians who have attained a status of iconicity: Kobe, Animal Collective, Michael Jordan, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Tony Hawk, Tyler the Creator, Future Islands, RZA, Derrick Rose, Run the Jewels, Battles, 2 Chainz, Mark Gonzales, and so on.

What is more baffling is how someone arrives at the opportunity to photograph these people from such disparate industries; for Atiba, these occasions often occur out of chance rather than will. A backstage “hey” activates a network of social dominoes that eventually results in the moment when Explosions in the Sky’s Munaf Rayani holds a guitar ritualistically to the crowd, irradiated by beams of light and covered in a cosmos of photographic grain, in a way that speaks to the shimmering/shattering gliss of the band’s music. Commercial or recreational, each image demonstrates the skill needed to render the particular affect of that instance and the attention necessary to convey the something of an innate quality of a person’s identity.

Atiba derives his practice from his subject. Panda Bear’s Lonely Wanderer, with its cascading keys and mantric vocals repeats, “If you…Look back…Would you…Look back…What have you done…Have you done…Was it…Was it Worthwhile.” Similarly, Lonely Wanderer can be taken as a persistent, reflective, and fragmentary self-interrogation of achievement as communicated through the people that Atiba meanders around.

Atiba is a photographer living and working in Los Angeles. He has served on the editorial staff for Transworld and is one of the founders of The Skateboard Mag. He shoot campaigns for Supreme, adidas, Panasonic and the LA Lakers. He plays keyboards in a band called The Goats & The Occasional Others and co-runs a bar in LA. Lonely Wanderer is his third exhibition at HVW8. He has previously shown at HVW8 LA and HVW8 Berlin.
