[Exhibition & Book Signing] West Coast Hip Hop: A History In Pictures – 4/27 & 4/28

FIFTY24SF Gallery, in association with Upper Playground, are pleased to announce West Coast Hip-Hop: A History in Pictures, a special two-day exhibition and book signing featuring the iconic hip-hop photos of Los Angeles photographer, Michael Miller. The exhibition opens Friday, April 27, 2012, followed by a special book signing of Miller’s West Coast Hip-Hop: A History in Pictures on Saturday, April 28 from 2—4pm.

Michael Miller’s photographs capture a unique era of West Coast culture, combining the emerging genres of gangster rap, skateboard culture, Los Angeles street culture, and the iconic personalities who help turn West Coast rap into a global phenomenon. Capturing intimate portraits of hip-hop legends 2pac, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Eazy-E, Cypress Hill, as well as iconic advertising campaigns with street fashion giant, Stussy, Michael Miller photographs hearken back to a pivotal moment in history where he took rap, surf, skate, punk, and street fashion fused into one image. The Los Angeles-based photographer has worked in the entertainment and music industry for over 25 years, with a portfolio of over 300 major record covers, iconic supermodels of the ‘90s, and some of the biggest names in rap and jazz.

 

For West Coast Hip-Hop: A History in Pictures at FIFTY24SF Gallery, Michael Miller will be presenting a series of his iconic early 1990’s hip-hop photographs, including numerous photos of 2pac, Ice Cube, Eazy-E, Snoop Dogg, Warren G, as well as photos of unique historical perspectives on Los Angeles street culture. On Saturday, April 28, from 2—4PM, Miller will be signing copies of his West Coast Hip-Hop: A History in Pictures at our FIFTY24SF Gallery.

The exhibition will be on display from April 27—28. 2012, with a special book signing event on Saturday, April 28 from 2—4 pm.
