Behind the camera lens, it is no understatement to say that Jonathan Mannion is a force to be reckoned with. Having been given his first big break many years ago by Heavy D, Mannion has gone on to shoot virtually every major hip-hop artist and rapper. In collaboration with Reebok Classics, the legendary photographer will be showing an extensive exhibition of his work during Art Basel Miami 2011. Aptly entitled “CLASSIC,” the exhibit will showcase a wide array of Mannion’s most celebrated and recognizable work with many of the hip-hop industry’s past and present icons. The four-day exhibition will also feature a special collaborative series of illustrated photographs and prints that Mannion created alongside artists such as Rick Ross, Rakim, Fat Joe, Mos Def, Fabolous and Ja Rule.
