RARE & UNSEEN MOMENTS OF 90'S HIPHOP: VOLUME ONE

 "I watched it for a while, then slowly got out my camera and moved toward some of the action. I was relatively close to Tupac and I kept to certain angles so I would not be intrusive in ‘Pac’s space. The connection became more endearing.

A STORY OF ART & HIPHOP

 T. Eric Monroe’s work peers into a personal space, reserved for close friends and trusted loved ones. During the 90's and a "Golden Age" of HipHop, Monroe photographed intimate moments of artists who are now Cultural Icons. 

While many photos were licensed and purchased in contemporary publications, a treasure trove of images were hidden away in digital archives, and kept out of the public eye for decades.
