Capturing a Culture,
A photographic history of countercultures, Pt. 3
"Conscious rap VS Gangsta rap captured by Glen E Friedman"

from Arté TV

Last week i began posting links of the original French and German versions on various social media, and on Sunday attempted to post the entire series here on the blog, not sure if that worked for everyone, so now that i have the english versions I can embed, here we go with my three parts over the next few days. This is the last, 3rd episode on my work. Let us know what you think.

In the late 1980s, driven on by the Def Jam label, the Hip Hop tsunami washes over America. Public Enemy, Run DMC, the Beastie Boys... all of Rap's future heavyweights will file in front of Glen's camera. His mythic photographs and cult album cover shots help craft the movement's unique esthetic.
