Wonderful  to participate in the ‘Fem- is -in’ exhbition curated by Alice Mizrachi in March. The  group show celebrated women-led activism and art and featured some of my all time favorite women artists Jane Dickson, Lady Pink, Martha Cooper, Queen Andrea. I showed six portraits of strong women including the portrait of British artist RayBLK (shot for Interview) used on the invite.

In May the Musée d’Art Contemporain in Marseille exhibited some of my classic hip hop photographs in ‘Hip Hop : The Golden Age 1970-1995’. This great show had record attendance. Hip Hop is huge in France.

At the same time Arts Westchester’s show “From The Streets” opened featuring some of my portraits of graffiti/ street artists from contemporary artist Sydney G James shot in Detroit 2016 to the 1985 photo of Keith Haring..

In January 2017 I started working with legendary screen printer Gary Lichtenstein on a series of silk screen prints featuring my photographs of LL Cool J, Chuck D, Slick Rick, Big Daddy Kane, Salt ‘n Pepa, and Run DMC. We made a series of  limited edition large prints and a box set of six 11×14″ prints. When the 212 Gallery  exhibition of these prints opened in November Fox 5 New York evening news aired a two part documentary piece about me focusing on hip hop and punk photographs. The screen prints were also shown at Art Basel Miami in December.


Finally in mid December great to be one of 240 artists worldwide asked to be part of the creation of a collaborative piece of art for the 30th anniversary of the Musee ‘d’Arabe in Paris. The theme is ‘An Open eye on the Arab World’. My art used images I shot in Montpelier and Lille during the spring  hip hop tour.
