Hip-hop photographer Lisa Leone heads to Dubai
See her work from tomorrow at D3
If you've got a penchant for hip-hop music as well as a love of beautiful portrait photography...then this might just be the best thing that could happen to you.
Street Festival Sole DXB is hosting its first event of the year in the form of a photo exhibition from legendary hip-hop photographer Lisa Leone. The exhibition which features candid shots of everyone from Snoop Dog and Nas to Grandmaster Flash, will also be offering a public sale of her work.
The show will run from 22 March until 5 April at Dubai Design District, with the opening night featuring a special performance by fellow New Yorkers, The BEATNUTS.
Lisa will unveil a range of never-seen-before archive photography, as well as standout selects from her notorious Here I Am book, and those captured on her recent trip to Sole DXB back in November 2015.
She said: “I'm very excited about coming back to Dubai. On my last trip, although short, I could really feel the enthusiasm and passion for a culture so close to my heart. The artists I met and photographed were so open and warm, I'm looking forward to my return.”
