For the readers of Frank151, if you haven’t picked up a copy of Chapter 43: “the Bug Out” you’re failing. It’s curated by none other than legendary photographer and NYC staple, Ricky Powell. Via Frank 151 – “Rickyâ€™s interest in photography started in the mid-â€™80s, right around the time he connected with an up-and-coming hip-hop trio called the Beastie Boys. Before long, he become known as the “Fourth Beastie Boy.â€ Twenty-five years later, â€œthe Oscar Madison of Hip-Hopâ€ has published four photo collections, hosted his own local-access TV show (Rappinâ€™ with the Rickster), co-hosted the Chances with Wolves radio show, shot for countless magazines and newspapers, and contributed his work to several apparel lines. Converse and Puma have even produced a shoe with Ricky.”
And the The Rickster is far from slowing down. His curation in the Bug Out project sheds light on his recent artist collaborations and distinguishing antics. Check out this interview with fellow camera manÂ Joe Conzo, photographer of Born in the Bronx.
