Michael Miller   West Coast Hip Hop, A History In Pictures Exhibition Recap | Los Angeles

While the name Michael Miller might not immediately ring any bells, the man has quietly moved through the hip hop world for the past 25 years cataloging the culture through his lens. His impressive portfolio includes a campaign for Stussy as well as over hundreds of album covers, with his work leaning West Coast what with Miller being an LA native. Cracking open his vault, his inaugural show West Coast Hip Hop, A History In Pictures consisted a collection of 43 black and white pieces that have never been seen by the public before. The imagery therein conjures the sinister scenes of Los Angeles’ lower class, capturing the likes of Ice Cube and Tupac as they rose through the ranks to become global icons. Follow us after the jump for a photo recap of the recent show that went down at Known Gallery. via Juxtapoz
