Janette Beckman’s photography exhibition “Archive of Attitude” marks the third artist installment at Project Space, an environment developed in collaboration by Incase and Arkitip for creative persons and groups to display their work. To celebrate the opening, a lively reception was held at Project Space. For the exhibition, Beckman culls works from her time in London during the punk era through the hip-hop decade in New York and Los Angeles. The show will feature artifacts and photographs of musicians, their fans and youth culture. For “Archive of Attitude,” two, new limited edition books entitled Made in the UK 1982 and Made in Los Angeles 1982 will be available at Project Space, highlighting a selection of Beckman’s newly released archival images. The exhibition will be on display at Project Space August 13 through September 5.

Beckman is an English documentary photographer who has worked with some of the most influential musicians of the modern era. She began her photography career at the dawn of the punk movement, shooting the top acts of the day: The Clash, The Jam, The Sex Pistols and Boy George, as well as three album covers for The Police. In 1982, Beckman moved to New York City, where she immersed herself in the burgeoning hip-hop scene, photographing pioneers such as Afrika Bambaata, Run DMC, Salt-N-Pepa, Grandmaster Flash and EPMD. Her powerful portraits have been collected in two books: Made in the UK: The Music of Attitude, 1977-1983 and The Breaks: Stylin’ and Profilin’ 1982-1990, both published by PowerHouse Books.
