Ilja Meefout 1,2,1,2 Portraits Of Hip Hop
Ilja Meefout has photographed the world’s greatest Hip Hop artists. He grew up in the Bijlmermeer in Southeast Amsterdam. His love of Hip Hop – which developed from an early age by listening to cassette tapes of Eric B & Rakim, NWA and Public Enemy – is clearly visible in his photos. His portraits are often characterized by a quiet simplicity and take ‘the artist’ out of their daily context, that often includes a large entourage and a lot of noise. Snoop Dogg, Lil’ Wayne, Pusha T, Ice Cube, The Beastie Boys, and the Wu-Tang Clan: Meefout has captured them all on camera.
