Catch the Beat
The Roots of Punk & Hip Hop
A new exhibit celebrating the work of music photographers Janette Beckman and David Corio, Catch the Beat: the Roots of Punk & Hip Hop, opens at the Morrison Hotel Gallery tonight.
Geographically and culturally separate, the punk and hip-hop counterculture movements were founded on equally subversive, even dangerous, approaches to making music. Both of these historic art forms’ beginnings and progressions have been well documented, and we have the likes of Janette Beckman and David Corio to thank for that. Both of these musical documentarians’ work has been prominently featured in our magazine, each even presenting their own photo essays in Issue 25.
