Before the sold out shows, before MTV, and even before the culture of hip-hop had taken mainstream root, Brooklyn-born photographer Lisa Leone was carefully documenting the burgeoning movement of musical community through the lens of her camera. “THEN” is a new solo show from Leone featuring those deeply personal photographs of pioneering names like Snoop Dogg, Lauryn Hill, Mary J. Blige, Wyclef Jean, A Tribe Called Quest, and of a time before hip-hop became what it is today. Each evocative photograph and respective interview captures a unique interaction between Leone and her subject, depicting growing up in Brooklyn on the very cusp of a cultural revolution. The exhibition will be showing at HVW8 Art and Design Gallery in Los Angeles, starting on May 11.
