HomeGrown: The Story of UK Hip Hop is the first major exhibition to chronicle, in depth, the development of the UK Hip Hop scene. Looking back over three decades, the exhibition tells the story of how a generation of youth took the spirit of the  Bronx block party and fused it with their own uniquely British influences. In doing so it shows how a US subculture featuring art, politics, rhyme, dance and music was adopted, adapted and embraced to create a powerful, complex, cultural force, this side of the
Atlantic. Working with the UK’s most influential figures in Hip Hop the exhibition brings together the rare, remarkable and irreplaceable in Hip Hop photography, music, film and fashion from the best private collections.

I have submitted a number of shots I’ve taken over the last 5 years on the UK HipHop scene, check them out below…
