Gunner Stahl has quite the portfolio for a 23-year-old. Already well-known in the blogosphere for his impressive collection of backstage candids, the Atlanta-based film photographer spends his time documenting the downtime of big-time rappers/cultural influencers and, as such, is able to capture the intimate moments most don't get to see.
So it's only appropriate that Stahl is dropping his much-anticipated photobook For You Mom today -- a touching tribute to his mom who passed from breast cancer that serves as a showcase of some of his favorite snaps from the past year. Documenting "everyone I look up to in music or just plain life," there are portraits of everyone from Internet style icon Ian Connor to his friends Rae Sremmurd and Mike Will Made It, meaning the finished product has a snap for nearly every hip-hop fanatic on your list.
Peep a few exclusive snaps below -- and then preorder the portrait book via Stahl's website. Just in time for Christmas, right?
