Londoner, Janette Beckman, began her career at the dawn of punk rock working for The Face and Melody Maker. She shot bands from The Clash to Boy George, as well as three Police album covers. 


Moving to New York in 1982, Beckman was drawn to the underground Hip Hop scene. Her photographs of pioneers such as Run DMC, Slick Rick, Salt ‘n’ Pepa, Grandmaster Flash and Big Daddy Kane, are in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Museum and the Museum of the City of New York.


Legends Of Hip Hop press kit is available here.
