Reebok: Classic by Jonathan Mannion at Art Basel Miami Part 2
Last month Reebok previewed its Art Basel exhibit titled “Classics,” showcasing the work of legendary hip-hop photographer Jonathan Mannion. Part one highlighted Mannion’s early work, his big break with the late Heavy D, and the process he goes through to capture the essence of each artist in every still. Today, Reebok presents the second and final part of this video series, providing a look into the gallery itself and its opening night’s star-studded celebration. The four-day exhibit presented a look into the photographer’s most celebrated and recognizable work, featuring many of our favorite hip-hop figures both past and present. As you can see from the footage captured, Mannion is a favorite among his hip-hop colleagues, pulling in the likes of Fabolous, Rick Ross, Gabrielle Union and A$AP Rocky to celebrate his timeless work. As our beloved music genre transitions from an underground subculture to mainstream America, Mannion will surely continue to capture the expressive nature of our favorite rappers for years to come.
