Janette Beckman Catches the Beat of Old-School Punk and Hip-Hop
Photographer, one-time frequent PAPER contributor and Londoner-turned New Yorker Janette Beckman will be opening a fascinating exhibit, "Catch The Beat: The Roots of Punk & Hip Hop" on March 11th at the Morrison Hotel Gallery. The show documents the excitingly innovative hip-hop and punk movements that grew out of New York City and London in the the '70s, '80s and '90s. The exhibit is also a collaboration between Beckman and fellow photograher David Corio, documents the trailblazers of both genres and features portraits of everyone from Afrika Bambaataa to the Clash to Tom Waits. We wouldn't be surprised to find a few images that originally ran in PAPER included in the show and we can't wait to take a spin through her instillation.
