Project Space in Los Angeles are preparing for their latest exhibition, with renowned photographer Janette Beckman the artist in the limelight. Having captured the likes of the Style Council and The Clash to RUN DMC and Easy E you can understand her iconic status. This show entitled “Archive of Attitude” will showcase some of Beckman’s most recognizable images, along with her works of youth and other various aspects of our culture.
Beckman is an English documentary photographer who has worked with some of the most influential musicians of the modern era. She began her photography career at the dawn of the punk movement, shooting the top acts of the day: The Clash, The Jam, The Sex Pistols and Boy George, as well as three album covers for The Police. In 1982, Beckman moved to New York City, where she immersed herself in the burgeoning hip-hop scene, photographing pioneers such as Afrika Bambaata, Run DMC, Salt-N-Pepa, Grandmaster Flash and EPMD. Her powerful portraits have been collected in two books: Made in the UK: The Music of Attitude, 1977-1983 and The Breaks: Stylin’ and Profilin’ 1982-1990, both published by PowerHouse Books.
