Contact High

Penned by Vikki Tobak and featuring a foreword by Questlove, Contact High: A Visual History of Hip-Hop is an inside look at the work of hip-hop photographers told through their most intimate diaries - their contact sheets. The collection of photos span decades of documentation from hip-hop culture, featuring rare outtakes of iconic as well as unseen images from photographers like Glen Friedman, Ricky Powell, Lawrence Watson, Angela Boatwright and many more. The book takes readers on a chronological journey from old-school to alternative hip-hop and from analog to digital photography. A great read for anyone interested in the early days of hip-hop.
