High: A Visual History

of Hip-Hop



Through the contact sheets of more than 100 photo shoots, as well as interviews with photographers and

essays from artists, this collection offers an intimate look at hip-hop, spanning almost 40 years. Since the

book relies so heavily on interviews, it is conversational and easy to read but also incredibly enlightening for

anyone wanting to learn about the history of hip-hop from 1979 to 2012. Those doing high school or early

college-level research papers will find it useful. The images primarily depict hip-hop artists but sometimes

include their friends and family, dancers, and fans, giving a wide view of the genre's influence on our culture

over the years. The use of contact sheets, or the negatives from analogue photo shoots that were printed onto

sheets for photographers to consider all their shots, adds interest. This volume gives readers a look into the

process, rather than just focusing on the final shots that made it onto magazine ­covers. VERDICT A rich

history both of hip-hop and photography, for all collections.-Emily ­Butler, Deerfield Academy, MAα(c)

culture, discovering fascinating stories and lessons on those sheets.' — The New York Times

'...[A] wondrous tribute to the way hip-hop overturned not just the sound of culture but also ways of

seeing...Contact High provides a fascinating prehistory of our present, a glimpse into a time when nobody

quite knew where hip-hop could go.' — The New Yorker'Tobakâ€s best contribution isnâ€t just in

the wealth of new images she offers but also in the simple act of assigning names to them. As MC Shan once

rapped about his producer and DJ, Marley Marl: 'Iâ€m gonna give the man behind the wheels some

credit.' With Contact High, Tobak insists we extend the women and men behind the camera the same

gratitude.' — The Los Angeles Times'Writer Vikki Tobak delivers a coffee table book for the ages, a

feast of words and iconic hip-hop portraits spanning four decades...[Contact High]Â is not only a trip down

memory lane, but a testament to the enduring power of hip-hop, a culture that's constantly growing,

constantly changing and continues to inform the world we live in.' — NPR'[Contact High's] collection of

contact sheets reveals the care and consideration photographers put into each frame, the unavoidable

mistakes they made and how they coaxed a public persona from a private person.' — The Washington

Post'A vivid timeline of a most American phenomenon.' — CNN'[A] unique perspective on the

charisma, style, and swagger of some of the greatest rappers to ever spit verse.' — Buzzfeed'Contact

High is an irresistible showcase for rapâ€s brightest stars, and a deeply considered meditation on the

power of media in hip-hop culture.' — Pitchfork'Vikki Tobakâ€s great new book, Contact High: A

Visual History of Hip-Hop...[is]Â a long-awaited treat, a coffee table book of iconic photographs from hiphop

cultureâ€s four-decades-long timeline — opening with images of New York innovators such as Kool

Herc, Rocksteady Crew, Futura and Keith Haring, and Grandmixer DS.T, and closing on portraits of

todayâ€s greatest rappers, the likes of Kendrick, Nicki, Tyler and Gucci...Don't sleep. This one's a

keeper.' — AFROPUNK'[Contact High] is a clever and multidimensional look at history, with images

once relegated to the cutting room floor adding color and context to just how superstars — and the stories

about them — were made.' — The Fader'Contact High celebrates the off beat moments of hip hop

history—the quiet moments captured in a contact sheet, for instance, rather than the endlessly looped and

meme moments we all know by heart.' — PAPER'Hip hop heads, film photographers, and music lovers

will rejoice over this one.' — Popular Photography'[Contact High] is a visual homage to rapâ€s

legend-making stamp on society... To be frank, itâ€s a read all rap-philes need to add to their reading

lists.' — Cools.com See all Editorial Reviews
