Janette Beckman got her start photographing some of the most well-known names in Punk Rock during the 1970s: The Ramones, The Clash, The Specials, The Jam, The Sex Pistols, etc. Moving to NY in 1982, she immediately became drawn to the upcoming hip-hop scene and captured city icons such as Afrika Bambaataa, Run DMC, Michael Jonzun, Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick, MC Lyte and on and on and on!
Sara Rosen has been one of the most instrumental figures in publishing as far as getting graffiti artists and hip hop photographers’ names out there. She was the Associate Publisher and Senior Vice President of PowerHouse Books. She has created books, exhibitions, and special events that have sparked and influenced trends with various projects. Tune in to hear all about capturing that solid image and listen as Janette & Sara pick out their favorite 12″ sides.
The interview begins about 48 minutes in, and it’s set to Fela Kuti. Which make us feel that pretty much every interview should be set to Fela Kuti.
