If you love photography and hip hop, you’ll want to check out this pop-up experience by Hasselblad celebrating “Contact High: A Visual History of Hip Hop,” a recently published book by culture and entertainment journalist Vikki Tobak that documents hip hop’s key influencers over a 40-year span.

Where? Hasselblad’s New York Experience Studio on 632 Broadway, Floor 2, NY, NY
When? January 28th-February 1st from 10am to 4pm, and from February 4th-13th the gallery will be available by appointment only.
Cost? Reservations to attend the free event can be made at
What’s on Display? On display will be images made with various Hasselblad cameras from Janette Beckman, Danny Clinch, Armen Djerrahian, George Dubose, Jamil GS, Danny Hastings and Jayson Keeling. The interactive experience will provide a unique look into the photographer’s creative process through rarely-seen contact sheets and give visitors the opportunity to see selected printed images from the book, including photographs of Salt-N-Pepa, Jay-Z and Run DMC, amongst other high-profile artists.
