Sophie Bramly / Portrait of Early Days of Hip Hop
InTheFlesh have met the photographer Sophie Bramly to mark the release of his book "Walk This Way". She recounts the birth of Hip-Hop in the heart of New York in the 1980s.
Following Futura 2000, Zephyr, DST, Afrika Islam, Dondi and more, Sophie Bramly was a privileged witness of those rare moments between shots concerts, backstage or simple friends portraits.DST with Cazal glasses.

These photos depict the will of these innovative artists to hide the blackness of everyday life by colorizing the walls and their music.
